I might be taking a new job in Africa. The places I'd be going will have the real potential for theft. I don't really have anything on my macbook pro right now that I can't live without. I've actually wiped it clean in the past and would have no issues doing so again. So if you were going to be traveling through areas where you could easily be robbed of your items, but I'm not going to spend 4 week stretches there and not have my laptop, how would you set it up so that it's completely secure? Right now all I do is open the lid and put in a password to log in like I'm sure most do but that really doesn't seem like enough. I'd like to set it up so that if taken, even if they pulled the parts from it or tried connecting to it through some other means, that they wouldn't be able to get into the machine. Some of the information I'd have on it would be very sensitive. Are there 3rd party programs you could mention or a way to do a hard drive lock like my first thinkpad had that locked it on a bios like level? While I love my 13" rMBP I've always felt it was lacking in the protection department. That thinkpad from back in 2000 had more. Currently I have: 1) Login home screen 2) Connect to internet via VPN Thanks for any tips.
