Does the Acer Helios 300 G3 572 come with computrace?

I’m thinking of buying this older laptop and I’m wondering if it comes with computrace already set in the Bios or as an option to be enabled. Are there any other security features besides the logging in of a Microsoft account to show location that come default with this laptop? My Lenovo was stolen and I had almost no security installed so I’m looking for a secure gaming laptop.

    I don't have any computrace security on my 2017's G3-572 except the one provided by Microsoft.

    To prevent mishap, set full BIOS password so that even to just boot, it will ask for password.

    So there is only tracking through a Microsoft account that’s logged in?

    Riley3376 if you want realtime tracking install Prey if youre worried about security you could also of course do as @XdxD suggested but the downside its that if you ever forget the password or the bios gets bugged and wont recognize the password anymore you would  probably have to send it back to acer to wipe the bios completely and reflash it :)
