I was the owner of a Macbook Pro w/ Touchbar running macOS Mojave last week-end
The macbook has been stolen and moved 300 miles away from the point. I got two alerts separated by a few hours, around the same area. The pending lock hasn't been triggered unfortunately. But the "Sound" has been triggered.
The question is how did it send the location to Apple without Wifi? (it is not online, but just got located once or twice)
Did the thief crack my credentials and then logged in some Wifi?
Or did my macbook connect to a Wifi with the same SSID than a hotspot ?
Could the thief connect to the Wifi without being logged in?
Can the Macbook connect to any Wifi when in recovery/reset mode and trigger an alert on the Macbook?
