Apple Launches Find My Mac for iCloud Beta

Posted on August 4, 2011 by

Apple has activated the new Find My Mac tool for developers who are beta testing Apple’s upcoming iCloud service. Find My Mac works similar to Find My iPhone, allowing users to locate, lock and even wipe a lost Mac. Instead of using GPS to locate a lost Mac, it relies on Wi-Fi networks to determine the location.

After locating a Mac, users can play a sound, send a message, lock the screen and erase the hard drive. The service is expected to launch to the public along with iCloud this fall.
