FireFound is one of the most important Firefox plugin that I have ever come across. This amazing free software helps you recover your computer if it is lost or stolen! You just need to install FireFound as a plugin for your Firefox. Then, whenever location of your computer changes, FireFound sends that information to its own secure servers. You can login to your account anytime, and retrieve that information.


Another great feature of FireFound is that it can even destroy your personal data, such as your browsing history, and your saved passwords and forms information. This ensures that if someone steals your computer, they will not be able to find your personal sensitive information.

Note that FireFound sends approximate location of your computer, and not exact GPS coordinates. So, it would be able to point you to approximate location of your computer. Also, this information is sent only when your computer comes online. So, unless the thief hooks up your computer to internet, you won’t be able to get the location.

If you carry lot of sensitive data on your computer, it is always recommended to secure your data using some data encryption software like DiskCryptor. Also, instead of storing passwords in your browser, it is better to store them in a free password manager.
