Swift recovery in Denmark
Thanks to Undercover, K.T. was able to recover a stolen MacBook Pro in less than a week. Having had a break-in before and lost an old MacBook, he installed Undercover on all the Macs in his household. A year later, they had a break-in where a rather new MacBook Pro was stolen.
"In the following weekend, the Mac came online for the first time. Unfortunately Skyhook wasn't able to give us a location, but luckily the new owner of the Mac went on Facebook so we managed to get a name, thanks to the screenshots."
"After an hour of gathering evidence (screenshots and iSight pictures) in our UndercoverCenter account, we contacted the police who was very impressed and definitely interested. A few hours later, the MacBook Pro went offline and minutes later the police called - they had found it and would bring it back to us the same evening."
"According to the police, they will charge the "new owner" of the laptop for receiving stolen goods, as well as the middleman. The thief who initially stole the laptop has also been identified. Not bad for a $59 Undercover household license."
"One of the policemen even wanted to know more about Undercover so he could get it for his own Mac as well."
