Comments on: Tracking a Mac laptop over the internet (locating a stolen laptop) http://www.theobfuscated.org/2011/04/08/tracking-a-mac-over-the-internet/ | A Project By Joseph Viscomi Fri, 14 Sep 2012 06:07:33 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.2.1 By: Joseph Viscomi http://www.theobfuscated.org/2011/04/08/tracking-a-mac-over-the-internet/#comment-84 Joseph Viscomi Tue, 25 Oct 2011 12:50:08 +0000 http://www.theobfuscated.org/?p=209#comment-84 Sorry Deric, the software needs to be installed and setup on the computer ahead of time. There is not much you can do now. Mac addresses are unique but they are at level 2 which means that you cannot really locate it remotely using it. It really sucks when stuff like that happens.

I do not have access to the machine now - can I still use your software to track it? BW Deric Cambridge UK Dear Joseph,

My Mac has just been stolen but I have the Serial number (don’t know the Mac address unless it is unique and given with the product when sold?) or my ISP provider I have been using may be able to get it for me.

I do not have access to the machine now – can I still use your software to track it?
