dc.description.abstract Many people make use of electronic devices such as personal computers, laptops, cameras, mobile phones, gaming consoles, and a whole range of electronic devices to make their lives muc h more productive, entertaining and also to bring about significant ch ange in the world. Just as the population of people who do so is increasing at a geometrical rate, so also is the rate of theft or loss of those devices, and more times than often, there is always a slim chance of recovering those l ost or stolen electronic devices. The aim of this project is to provide an online pla tform whereby people in Ghana can register their electronic devices with ease, alert the necessary authorities in the event of theft or loss, and chec k via an online or mobile service if the reported device has been found. This application is not a guarantee of recovering all missing or stolen elect ronic devices reported in the country, however if most gadgets are registered , it will discourage the theft of electronic devices, reduce and eventually put a stop to the second hand sale of those devices in the black market, and aid in recovery of missing or stolen devices. en_US
