Someone just broke into my apartment today and stole my new MacBook Pro. When I go to icloud.com and click on Find my iPhone, on the Devices section, my MacBook is listed. When I click on it, it attempts to find it and says its offline. I don't know how to proceed. There's a good chance that it was stolen by a kid who lives within a 5 mile radius (from details I can't share).
How can I be sure that Find my iDevice was enabled on my MacBook? (I can't remember for the life of me if I had enabled or disabled it)
Maybe I'm just being naively hopeful but is there a way to not wipe out the drive and still prevent access? It's not likely to have been stolen by a security expert, to say the least. (wider neighborhood kid is what it looks like)
I've checked 'Notify when found' on the icloud.com/find page for my device. Does this mean I'll get an email? Do I have to be on icloud.find 24/7 to get a notification and the last location?
