Every time I buy a new computer or tablet I am made to register the product with personal information. Is there a way to get around this? Why is it asking me to give that information to them just because I bought their product? Is this a security risk to my personal information that might be sold latter?

No security risk made to register to buy a new computer or tablet.Its just optional.If u don't want to register your personal information so just skip it.don't worry does not matter its very simple.But if you need to backup your computer so must me need register.If you buy again a new computer or tablet so delete previous backup and create new backup file.

If you are referring to the product’s warranty, this is normal and it is totally up to you if you want to register. After all, it will all come down to you when the time comes and you encounter problems with the product and you didn’t register it for the warranty. You will have to pay for the repairs instead of being covered by the warranty.

The product’s warranty is your own protection against defective devices being sold in the market. The warranty is the manufacturer’s assurance to customers that the product is free from factory defects.

Since problems can’t be avoided even if the product underwent quality checking, the warranty serves as the manufacturer’s assurance to customers that if a problem is encountered with the product within the period specified in the warranty, the manufacturer will handle all the expenses for the repairs. Product warranties have individual time span to cover and the information about the coverage is detailed in the warranty certificate.

Aside from the product receipt that is issued to the customer after purchasing the product, the warranty is the only thing that will require you to give your personal information. Again, it is totally up to you. If you are a very private person and you don’t want to give any of your personal information, just ignore the warranty certificate.

When your product starts malfunctioning, just pay for the repairs.
