As much as I can, I use passwords for all my devices. Then these passwords must be difficult to crack passwords as well. Aside from that, for every site I visit, I make sure that it's a safe site. After every internet browser session, I make sure to clear my cookies and history. I don't download any suspicious files that are sent to me.

    As for using this nail polish technique, maybe I would when I think that my laptop's been compromised. I don't really tinker with my laptop's ports or hardware so it isn't much of a problem with me to use nail polish on it. As I've said, it cannot prevent the crime, it's just a tool to know if someone did tinkered with your laptop.
    Yeah, the idea that this will "protect your data" is a bit silly. Is it like pouring bleach on an ATM after robbing it?
