Protecting Your Mac with Anti-Theft
Watch tutorial on Anti-Theft
The Anti-Theft service offers you a unique opportunity to track down your Mac in case it gets lost or stolen.
1Enable the service from the MacKeeper application.
You should be logged in to MacKeeper with your ZeoBIT account to activate Anti-Theft. Enable Anti-Theft BEFORE your Mac gets stolen!
2In case your Mac gets stolen, from any other computer navigate to the My Account page of MacKeeper website, or go directly to http://account.zeobit.com.
3Go to the Anti-Theft tab or click Details near Anti-Theft under Services.
4Select the computer in the list and click Report stolen computer.
5If you did not provide your phone number during registration, enter it in the Phone field in the dialog that appears and click the Computer was stolen button.
6As soon as your Mac goes online, Anti-Theft will generate a report on its location and email it to you and MacKeeper customer support along with the thief snapshot – a feature for Mac computers with iSight webcams that will be automatically activated after you click Computer was stolen.
Even if your Mac does not have iSight, we still recommend you to leave Thief Snapshot activated, as someone else may connect a separate webcam to a stolen Mac.
7Then a customer support representative will call you, giving detailed guidelines on how to communicate with the police and get your Mac back.
8In addition to the phone call you will receive an email message with the up-to-date report. In case the customer support representative cannot reach you on the phone, you will get the aforementioned guidelines in the email as well. You can also view the location report from your ZeoBIT account by clicking the computer name and selecting See location report from the menu.
9You will see the two tabs: Location report history and Snapshots. The Location report history tab contains the log of all location reports that includes computer name(s), date, IP address, geographic address, and technical details. The Snapshots tab contains photos of the thief made by iSight, if applicable.
10After the police has found your Mac, do not forget to go to http://account.zeobit.com and click Computer was found.
MacKeeper team sincerely hopes that you will be careful enough not to lose your Mac.
