Too right decks.... up!

Of course the girl in the pic might not have stolen it I should point out, but thought the idea was great and splashed all over the papers someone will recognise her. Some people commenting on the paper page seem to think its an invasion of her privacy rolleyes ermm Hello... It's a stolen phone!

Hi there,

I have a programme on my MacBook Air called "MacKeeper".

Apparently, once I report the machine stolen it takes a photograph of the first person who opens the machine and then sends it to me by email along with the location of the machine when they log on to the Internet!! up!

Here's hoping that I never have to use the facility as I would be sorely tempted to just go round and recover the machine myself rather than report it to the police! wave

Best regards,
drinksallround

Did a search on the App Store but couldn't find MacKeeper dutto..... Where did you obtain it and do you know if it works on the iPad?

Check out:

www.zeobit.com

I think my iPhone is protected on the same system but not too sure as I actually bought the MacKeeper for the anti-virus and disc clean-up facility.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
