Laptop ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Theft ๐Ÿšจ Protection

3.3/5
About

MacBook Alarm is macOS app that will secure your laptop.

Would you recommend this product?

Love it. For the next iteration, maybe you can fix the "mute" problem? And invest $99 in an Apple developer certificate? ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Pros:

Solves a real problem when working at public spaces

Cons:

Ineffective if thieve mutes sound before taking the MacBook; app not signed.

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!

Pros:

Everything you want when working from coffee shops whenever you need to step away

Cons:

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

I just bought Apple Developer Certificate and sign the app so now all users will not be have this error anymore.

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.

Pros:

Novel concept

Cons:

Price

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.".

Pros:

You can relax visiting the WC.

Cons:

The robber can turn volume off.

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.
