GadgetTrak USB is compatible with the Kindle device and allows Kindle owners to track down their device if it is stolen. When a Kindle is stolen and a thief connects it to a PC, the Kindle device converts to a mass storage device, when this partition is accessed the GadgetTrak software is activated. GadgetTrak will utilize the host system the Kindle is connected to and use its internet connection to check the GadgetTrak server to see if you have flagged the device as stolen, if you have GadgetTrak will gather infromation from the system including the name of the person logged on, internal network information, IP address, ISP information, location and more. This data can be provided to law enforcement to recover the device and is filed along with a police report.
