Another take on missing laptop

I’m glad for Verified Identity Pass Inc. that it found its missing laptop. That’s a relief. (“Laptop with fliers’ data found,” Aug. 6.)

And the laptop was missing for only a week, and found in the same office in which it had gone missing. What luck! Surely no one could have copied any of the registered travelers’ unencrypted data in a week, right?

Never mind about everyone in the Clear program whose identification information was on the laptop. And never mind about all other travelers who are exposed to phony Clear travelers using stolen identity data.

At least Verified Identity got its laptop back and can once again say, “Just trust us.”
