We bet you haven’t even noticed the small slot on the side of your laptop, sitting just next to the USB port. Have you? Well, as involved as we are in our laptops these days, we do not even know all its functions.

Not many people know that the slot we do not ever use in our laptops is actually one of the most things in the device. Yes! This slot is actually for security purpose. What kind of security? Well, these slots exist in the devices as laptop locks.

There is a long cable which, attaching its one end to the laptop, gets wrapped around an immovable object, with the lock inserted securely to the device.

While there are several brands now making such locks, but the one that started it is Kensington. Therefore, the slot is often called the Kensington slot.

Keep calm, and do this to STOP WhatsApp from sharing your info with Facebook

The small slot actually connects to the inner metal panel of the device which makes it impossible to remove the lock unless the device is made unusable.

Here’s how it works?

It has a T-shaped knob that rotates 90 degrees after the lock is inserted into the slot. The cable is then attached to the key of the lock, which is wrapped around an immovable object.

So, learnt something new?

Here’s why there is a small hole at the back of your mobile phones!
