Leave a guest account open
Authored by: ctwise on Aug 29, '08 05:02:34AM
If you implement a solution like this a good approach is to:
  • Set a firmware password. Without breaking open the laptop the thief can't bypass the OS.
  • Set a login password. Don't auto-login.
  • Create a guest account with no password. A way in for use by the thief.
With this in place your data is relatively secure - use FileVault if you want added peace of mind - and the thief will have something to play with while the tracking software snaps photos of him/her and sends back information.
