Individuals can register their assets for free, and update status if missing or stolen. Individual can transfer asset ownership to other members or have asset transferred to them. Individuals can search or verify assets.
You can add any asset that has either an electronic or physical unique identifier, e.g. mobile phones, computers (laptop, desktop, server etc.), computer peripherals (printer, scanner, etc.), vehicles, motorcycles, electronic systems (TV, music, video recorder), cameras, games devices, plant machinery, power generators, uninterrupted power supplies etc.

Undisputedly, asset robbery and illegal transfer of both individual and business assets is becoming more real and happens more regularly, myAssetLookup offers a simple and reliable way of registering these valuable assets. If a registered asset gets stolen or missing, the owner will flag it as such. When an asset status is flagged as stolen or missing, this status will be shown to prospective buyers who search in myAssetLookup - this will deter the culprits from engaging in the robbery/stealing act.
myAssetLookup provides asset search service, which can be used to independently verify the ownership status of an asset before purchase. Matched search result will provide the ownership registration history of the asset (by the different registrants of the asset). Furthermore, for each registration record, it will provide the current and historical asset status, and warning if the asset has been flagged as missing or stolen by any of the registrants.
myAssetLookup search will prevent you from becoming an accomplice in stolen goods cases as the searched asset ownership and status history will be made available.
If a registered assets goes missing or stolen, you can flag it as stolen or missing; and this set status and additional information will show up when a potential buyer searches for the asset.
A search report does not disclose the name of the asset owners, however asset proof report does.
Any member who registers an asset can issue a proof key of the asset item, to any interested party, the proof key receiver can use it to confirm that the target asset actually belongs to the proof key provider.
The proof report is a certificate of ownership issued by the asset owner, and confirmed by the receiver. The issuer of the proof key (certificate) cannot deny the act. By issuing a proof key, the member issuing the key is asserting legal ownership of the target asset.
When buying second hand assets, request the seller to provide the myAssetLookup proof key; with the proof key, you can independently check in the portal for the asset and seller information.
Unlike asset search report, asset proof report with owner's permission; shows the personal details e.g. names, address, and telephone number of the proof key issuer.
Search report shows the ownership registration history of the asset (by the different registrants of the asset); and for each registration record, it will provide the current and historical asset status, and warning if the asset has been flagged as missing or stolen by any of the registrants.
On the other hand, the proof report is a certificate of ownership issued by the asset owner, and confirmed by the receiver. The issuer of the proof key (certificate) cannot deny the act. By issuing a proof key, the member issuing the key is asserting legal ownership of the target asset.
Any two individual or business members can transfer asset between them and is subject to the potential recipient accepting the request for transfer initiated by the current asset holder or seller.
