IPFetcher can potentialy locate the PC’s physical location if it is stolen. The program sends it’s external IP-Address on a schedule you set to your mail and/or a log on a FTP server. It also sends it when the PC is started.
The IP-address is unique, and the thieves internet supplier will be able to inform the police where it is located. The internet supplier can normally be identified if you just key in your IP on www.geolocation.com. On top of that you might even be able to see on this site which area it is located, but the exact address will only be known by the internet supplier. The program runs as a service, and therefore it is not even necessary to login. It is a very small and smart little program that might just save your day – and maybe your other belongings.
