LoJack DID NOT work for me!!!
After stupidly leaving my 4-month-old MacBook Pro 13.3 on an airplane I felt confident that I would either receive my recovered la After stupidly leaving my 4-month-old MacBook Pro 13.3 on an airplane I felt confident that I would either receive my recovered laptop or $1,000 compensation. I filed a police report as required and supposedly the investigation ensued. Due to fine print (lost/stolen outside the U.S.) I was not eligible for the compensation, and just had to hope that they could track down my property. In the few days following the event, the lucky new owner logged into the internet using my computer and LoJack was able to trace it: the laptop was still in Amsterdam. This, however, is where the search seemed to end. Apparently they needed more than those few log-ins, the associated IP address, and a police report to actually retrieve the laptop. The next step I was told was just to wait for more internet usage and hope that the thief would type some personal information into a website.
So either the new owner of my laptop has not logged in to the internet since January 31, 2010 (4 1/2 months ago as I'm writing this), or the hard drive has been replaced and I will probably never see it again.
Bottom Line: You're probably covered if you don't travel internationally with your computer and your thief isn't tech-savvy. …

Some have mistaken the hard drive as the cr Its unfortunate that some have reported unhappy experiences here for varying reasons. Some have mistaken the hard drive as the cruz of the matter. The persistent agent behind Lojack is located in the firmware, not the hard drive. Each time the thief logs onto the net, a signal is sent to Absolute's team. The software install only turns on Absolute's "ears." It is not dependent on software on the HD. It cannot be defeated by removing/replacing/wiping the HD. …

On the Mac is Lo Jack just a piece of installed software that can be removed by being deleted or is it rooted into the OS?

Some laptops have LoJack installed in the BIOS meaning that even taking out the old hard drive and p Some laptops have LoJack installed in the BIOS meaning that even taking out the old hard drive and putting in a new one wouldn't delete the software. However, Apple's do not have that feature and therefore this software is just that, software.
To take a precaution however, the software automatically creates a partition for itself to avoid being deleted in a OS reinstall. So a basic reformat will not delete the software. A hard drive swap would however. …
