    YES! Thank you. That was it.

    However, it's taking forever to load. Been 5 minutes since I logged in and I see a progress bar with a world map in the background. But no hits and I don't see a way to find my serial number (yet).

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear about this.

    Your gym may have cameras that may have caught the person in the act.

    Wouldn't hurt to check!

    Yes. The officer just left and he's heading over to the gym to see if they have cameras. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Did a Google search on Asus Device Tracker, found a suggestion to use your Google account to get in...

    That exactly what I did. I'm logged in; it know the device (tablet); but so far can't find it. Also, there doesn't appear to be (or I just can't find it) a way to get my S/N.

    Re: OMG my tablet was stolen. What can I do?

    Check the gym sign in logs and the gyms security video, thief most likely left the gym very quickly. I would
    1. Check the gym attendance logs and video.
    2. Narrow Down suspects.
    3. Confront suspects with question "did you pick up the tablet by the x machine"
    4. The person that looks down and left to your question are lying if they look down and left. Look them square in the eyes and ask the question unnaturally slowly. Tell them that unless the tablet is turned into the front desk in 24 hours the police will be given the info you have. Tell them You "understand" that someone probably intended to turn it into the front desk but "forgot" and took it home in their gear bag.
    5. prosecute the *edit* out of them. Make the gym clearly aware you will tell everyone they have thieves there.

    People are creatures of habit, your thief uses the gym the same times and days, the person likely will skip a day or two for the crime to cool off, but they will return to their old schedule.

    It may take a while because I believe 2 things are required. The person has to get the tablet connected to the internet. Then the ASUS tracker service turns on the GPS but the GPS has to be able to get a lock.

    Of course, it may never work... but it's worth a shot.

    Yes, good point. I didn't think of that. I have a 4 digit password to unlock it so I suspect it's not going to happen or maybe when I stop checking.

    I'm just wondering how difficult it is for someone to crack or bypass the 4 number password? I know there are 10,000 possible codes but is there a way to hack in?

    And if someone is able to do so, can it be done without clearing all my data? It also has a micro SD card with a backup on it.

    I've got all my passwords, credit cards, bank accounts and more on the tablet and I'm worried.
