MacBook Alarm is macOS app that will secure your laptop.
Love it. For the next iteration, maybe you can fix the "mute" problem? And invest $99 in an Apple developer certificate? 🤪👍🏻
Solves a real problem when working at public spaces
Ineffective if thieve mutes sound before taking the MacBook; app not signed.
Great alti-theft alarm system for my MacBook 🚨
Loud alarm. Great to scare the sh*t out of anyone who steals your laptop
I wish it electro-shocked the person who's running away with my laptop 😈
I was happy to test the beta of this app with Andrey in Dojo, happy to see it live on PH!
Definitely the n°1 problem when you‘re working in cafe, now solved 💪🏻 Loud alarm + text message on the phone, great combo!
No cons found yet ;)
Hopefully I won't ever test this for real, but this product seems to be solving a real problem here.
A product which can solve you lots of stress, money and time
Some basic features missing in the first version like "load on mac start"
This is everything I wanted and never knew existed. It's only $10, and it's totally worth it for the peace of mind while you're working from a bar or coffee shop and need to step away to use the bathroom or order another drink, etc. I know it's pretty difficult to quickly steal a laptop because of passwords and "find my macbook," but I personally don't even want to get into the situation where I have to track my macbook and hope no one's gotten through my password screen first. This is the perfect solution!
Everything you want when working from coffee shops whenever you need to step away
the set up is a little clunky. There's no instructions before you're in the thick of it & downloading apps and changing security settings
The project was sold, and now they're charging a MONTHLY subscription for it. Good knows why would anyone paid monthly for no server-side functionality and virtually no development process.
Would be great to customize the sound. I'd like to add some text like: "I'm running away with a stolen mac; stop me and call the police.".
You can relax visiting the WC.
The robber can turn volume off.
Nice feature to have is a vocal message stuff.
This laptop have been stolen. TADAAAAAAA
Can Too late if it really happens.
It's good to make the thief feel bad.
Don't leave your laptop at all.
Does not work
I just started digital nomading again, and wanted to buy this app. I remember when it launched it was $5, now it's $20 *recurring*, so I decided to get another one.
