- Bought a secondhand Macbook pro over ebay.
- Seller told me "I logged off from iCloud but forgot to turn off Find My Mac.
- Bought it anyway since I do not plan using iCloud.
- Now I got news that if he wants he can track and block my Mac.
I have administrator account access, the EFI is not password protected since i asked him to wipe it out, so:
Can I simply log in with my iCloud account to the Mac and disable Find My Mac?
It's not nice to know that somebody can "track me".
The seller formated the drive before sending it to me, when i turned it off i got to the first time installation wizard. There's no apple id associated to the macbook and the only user is the one i did create in the wizard and has no icloud account associated whatsoever.
So, is it even possible to log off from your icloud account without disabling "find my mac"?. i've read that the tokes for find my mac are stored in nvram and the recovery partition so a hard drive format is quite useless since the device would be still showing up in the "find" icloud account of the seller.
