My MacBook Pro got stolen, I have file vault enabled but not the Firmware password, too bad from Apple's part not to enable it by default with account's password or at least to raise awareness about it. I'm an advanced user but never thought about the firmware password.
Anyway, my biggest fear now is that the thief can erase the disk using recovery mode, reinstall MacOS and have a new apple id configured, allowing him to bypass lock and find my iPhone tracking.
Is that really doable? will my Mac be able to detect the serial number when the thief is connected to install the fresh macOS online? I think the whole concept is useless otherwise :( I can't belive that it can be that easy to lose a 4000 USD device!!!
