Airport security measures have gottenso complex and time-consuming thatmany air travelers forget they're totingtheir laptop computer. On average, anairport security team will recover up to 6lost laptops a day. Unlike left-behindluggage, laptops usually don'tcarry any identity tags, and the personalinformation inside the computer is usuallyprotected by a password, which makesit impossible to reunite the computer withits owner. : Tape your business card orname and address to the outside of thecomputer so airport officials can trackyou down if you leave it behind.
