    check with the mac address if a macbook pro is online
    Hi everybody,

    a couple of weeks ago my macbook pro was stollen. I immediately called the Apple help desk and I informed them about this. The guy that i talked to, told me that I might be able to track the machine through the mac address. Is this possible?

    Thank you

    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    With some sophisticated, expensive software possibly, never heard of it myself though, i'm sure someone else here will know more about this kind of thing than me though.

    The best thing I have ever read about a stolen MacBook was a while ago when a girl managed to access her MacBook remotely and activate the camera on it, then took a picture using it of the thief, just one hour after it was stolen. All over the news here about a year ago.
    I hope you can get it back.
    Did you have insurance on it?

    Thank you Simon, I have also read this story. The problem here is that I can not access my computer.
