Keep up laptop data 100% safe

If your laptop or computer gets stolen ,a reinstalling of OS will remove the password .then everyone can access your computer hard disc data .

To prevent this type data stolen I prefer to set a BIOS password for your system . The BIOS password is not for a particular OS [windows] but for the computer .So no one can login to your computer without your BIOS password

Set BIOS password-Steps

  1. Turn on your PC
  2. Press F2 or F10(opens the BIOS set up)
  3. Use the arrow keys to move to BIOS security
  4. CLICK on administrator password and then enter your preferred password
  5. Save your changes

Now every time you boot up your computer you will be asked for a BIOS password

BIOS password will also not allow anyone to install os from a pen drive like ubuntu

Break Windows password

This trick is to unlock windows pc or laptop .

Follow the steps to open up password restricted computer

  1. Install ubuntu OS on a pendrive(Make a bootable pendrive)
  2. Boot up the computer/laptop whose files do you want to open
  3. When the computer turns on press f2(opens BIOS setup)
  4. In the BIOS set up select BIOS preference as USB
  5. Shut down the computer
  6. Now insert your pendrive and start the computer again
  7. Now the pc will boot up from the pendrive instead of hard disk.
  8. Since ubuntu is on pendrive and windows on Hard Disk ,Ubuntu will start .
  9. Once ubuntu starts you can view all files stored on the hard disk.

Benefit of using this trick

  1. no one can detect our hacking activity 
  2. no need to install any third party software
  3. no need to install any third party hardware 

we should need BIOS access to successfully do this trick
