Configuring Intel Anti-Theft

Symantec recommends you to configure the Intel Anti-Theft feature as soon as you buy your computer. By configuring Intel Anti-Theft, you can secure your critical information and personal data stored on your computer.

Activate Intel Anti-Theft before you configure the disable timer and the user password.
