I found an article on Macworld that suggested two apps: Hidden Undercover Their pricing is quite different. Undercover charges $49 for unlimited use on 1 device, while Hidden charges $2.50/month for 3 devices. If you want a free option, I think Mackeeper's Anti-Theft feature is free, but I don't trust them. Update: I found a free app called Prey which ...

The documentation only uses you to mean a person. The documentation is written with an owner in mind, so it refers to you, the reader, but not so specific as to your singular identity. It is not possible to uniquely identify people through the wrist. Any specific identification magic largely comes from communication with the paired iPhone.

I found an answer that works perfectly (although it requires temporarily adding a password to your user first): Open the Terminal Type: sudo visudo Enter your user's password (create one if necessary). Change this line FROM: %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL TO: %admin ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL (press 'i' to enter insert mode if you can't edit the text) Write and ...

I'm afraid there are not many options given an ordinary, "home user" budget. Theoretically you could send the drive in to a recovery service such as IBAS to get them to recover the original data on the drive. If this is even remotely possible depends on what kind of physical medium you had (i.e. is it SSD or spinning-platter hard drive). If they can recover ...

I've had a 960GB JetDrive 720 since September 2014 and have been running Yosemite since release. I found that enabling trim on Yosemite caused instabilities, and the system would lock up very regularly. I was in regular contact with Transcend about this for a while. I like to think that the removal of trim from the JetDrive toolbox on Yosemite was down to my ...

I interpret the watch being connected to you as it can tell that the clasp is secured to a living human wrist and then can detect when the strap comes off that living human. Apple calls this feature Wrist Detect So, if you were to put the watch on your friend and then authenticate Apple Pay - they could use your pay token for as long as the battery lasted ...

I've tried using backups and it did not solve the issues, after 3 reboots the problem disappeared without changing anything at all. I don't know the reason or why it fixed itself with just several reboots, but seems a good solution. I hope someone will discover the cause and a proper solution.

Yes, you need an enclosure to use a Kensington lock. As you can see Mac Mini doesn't have a pin lock.

As far as I can tell its just means as long as it's connected via bluetooth and in range. There isn't a Touch ID scanner on the watch or anything like that so I don't think that it forms an knid of "signature" to you.

I got this because of a Chrome Extension(One of the sport updates). I uninstalled it. (Really bad idea to have shutter sound as notification as it scares the hell out of people). Just try to check in it's preferences if it is using any sound.

You can try "Lock Me Now" app from the app store. It gives a pretty neat way to lock the mac.

There is Keychaindump tool written by Juuso Salonen which is a proof-of-concept tool for reading OS X keychain passwords as root. Basic usage: $ sudo ./keychaindump ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain Example output: $ sudo ./keychaindump [*] Searching process 15 heap range 0x7fa809400000-0x7fa809500000 [*] Searching process 15 heap range ...

This is simple job for AppleScript. First off make sure you're redirecting the standard output to a file by doing sudo security dump-keychain -d login.keychain > ~/Desktop/loginKeychain.txt. Before doing this command open up Script Editor, it should be in /Applications/Utilities/ then paste this: tell application "System Events" repeat while exists ...

The issue isn't with Firefox or Apple. It is Java itself that is blocking the application. The way to fix this is to add the website to the Exception Site List within Java Control Panel. Open System Preferences and click on Java, which should launch Java Control Panel. Select the Security tab and click the "Edit Site List..." button near the bottom. Then ...

I use many of their tools and this is probably not a false-positive. The only currently known false positives stated on their Dynamic Hijack Scanner webpage (at the bottom) ia Microsoft Messenger (mbukernel) and Microsoft Messenger Daemon (mbuinstrument). About your scan results, I also have BitTorrent Sync installed on my Mac and I get the same message ...

Have a look at this method I used for many years on Lion and Mountain Lion: How to stop InternetSharing overwriting /etc/bootpd.plist Since the culprit is still InternetSharing overwriting a standard configuration file, the method should work.

As it turned out, the problem here was that the network domain it had been registered had fallen out of sync. The time delay was a network timeout from believing it had access to the Domain controller and the time it didn't receive a response. Re-enrolling the device in the domain remedied this issue.

You can create a password-protected ad-hoc network by sharing your internet connection. To do so: Go to Apple Menu -> System Preferences Go to Sharing preference pane Select "Internet Sharing" Choose the source port Set your connection to be broadcast over WiFi Click on WiFi options and set a network name and security While this is a little more involved ...

Theoreticly there's always a certain risk since no system is 100% secure. But given the measures Apple took/takes to make iOS as secure as possible that risk is kept rather low. Currently there is no known security hole regarding what you describe.

I second recommendation for "Little Snitch". It's always running on my Mac. At first, shocking to see much traffic from the OS itself. To hide what you don't want revealed, you can set up rules in "Little Snitch". I also use "Avast" to control connections.

I am having the exact same problem, it started when I installed the 10.10.3 update, since then Apple released 10.10.3 Supplemental update that has helped the issue but has not solved it. Before the supplemental update it would happen every time the machine went to sleep. Now it seems to only happen after I type my password wrong. This is a late 2013 ...
