An anti-theft device with a trigger applied in a portable electronic device is provided, which has a trigger electrically connected with a trigger unit selectively. When the trigger is separated from the trigger unit, a sensing element begins to carry out the sensing operation, and the portable electronic device is put into a power saving mode. When the sensing element senses that the electronic device has been moved, it transmits a signal to a processor. Meanwhile, the portable electronic device and an alarm unit of the trigger will be enabled simultaneously, making a sound to warn the user.
