    There is no such thing as "anti theft software." Software cannot prevent theft of physical property.

    Though I agree, the makers of such recovery software also call it "anti theft" software. I guess it just sound bigger, ahem, better.

    First, cant be physically protected from theft since its just a "software".
    Two, Mac dont have GPS's like iPhones so no it cant find the accurate place.
    Three, Theres find my Mac but thats not that accurate since, again, no GPS.
    Four, you can delete files or back up/lock mac when its stolen but not physically stop it from getting stolen.
