    Hello! I made a YouTube video and I just noticed my serial number is shown in the about my Mac.

    Is this bad? Should I take down the video?

    Nothing can be done with the serial number to hurt you, as you have the proof of purchase of your MBP, where your serial number is stated as is your credit card or the amount you paid for it.
    One can only do look up the specs of the MBP you have and that is it.

    So they cannot call Apple and do anything like disable my Mac or something? Thanks for the reply!

    You know, you could delete the YouTube video if you're worried.

    I wouldn't worry about it but if you are, again, you can take it down. Just in case one of the three views ends up being some ******* kid.
    Not sure I'd even take the time to hunt down which video he posted.
