    Recently my MacBook was stolen by a "friend" who left the country.. I know the Mac is online because of syncing applications like Dropbox...

    I have the following information: Part nr. Serial nr. Model nr. Airport ID etc... + The Mac's local password + The used APPLE-ID user + password AND the IP-adress of the MacBook..

    Is there ANY way of remote locking it without "Find My Mac" is activated??? Anything can be done??
    Best Regards!

    There is nothing you can do to the Mac. What you should've done is change all your passwords. And should do so now. That way your "friend" can't damage your online data.

    The MacBook is synced with my dropbox. I can trick him to open a program: is there any way of a script that when clicked, activates FindMyMac?? Any possibilities? when i got all the information (password) needed.:confused:

    De-activate all devices on then ASAP! And move-on, it ain't coming back, sorry.

    ...what about Find My iPhone in – if it was linked to your iCloud Apple ID it may be trackable, but let me guess... the guy has signed-in under his own iCloud Apple ID... (see above about moving-on!)

    Having a Laptop stolen is the worst thing! I feel for you..

    found. This..

    also this:

    Which says you can get the ip of where he/she is, then send a bunch of large friends to their house.

    Just an idea... If they haven't changed your admin password, couldn't you ssh into the macbook then wipe files or this:

    I'm all for any type of revenge you can take ...
    Good luck.
