myBookAlarm - The ultimate Alarm and Protection System for your Computer.Protect
Opportunity makes the thief. So why don't directly signal that you're prepared and that they won't have any fun and use with your beloved Computer and that their face may end up on Facebook and Twitter and they may also end up in an orange jumpsuit collecting waste.
myBookAlarm can't prevent your Computer from everything - but it will scare off potential sneak thieves and protect your important data. And should your Computer really get stolen - myBookAlarm can help to identify the thief, prevent him from selling it and can help you to get it back quickly.
In case of an alarm you will immediately get an email and SMS notification containing a mugshot taken with the iSight camera and if you've enabled the 'stealth mode' on a restricted guest account - myBookAlarm will periodically send its location, IP address and screen shots - thus you can see what happens on your stolen Computer and tracking it down is a piece of cake.
Of course myBookAlarm can't replace horse sense and you have more to do to protect your Computer. In the help and manual you will find detailed information on how to properly setup myBookAlarm and what else you can do to secure your Computer.
Protect your beloved Computer and your important data from unwanted access and theft on the fly or by hand - to scare of potential sneak thieves or nosy roommates and colleagues...
Think of myBookAlarm as the car alarm for your Computer. Once armed, it will only allow access to your Computer with the correctly entered password - otherwise the thief won't have any fun or use at all...

I KNOW, THERE ARE SOME OUTDATED APPS OUT THERE THAT CAN MONITOR THE SUDDEN MOTION SENSOR OR MAKE USE OF THE REMOTE CONTROL OF YOUR COMPUTER.
MYBOOKALARM DOESN'T. NEWER COMPUTER DON'T HAVE A SUDDEN MOTION SENSOR ANY MORE AND NEITHER A REMOTE AS WELL. AND DO YOU REALLY CARRY YOUR REMOTE WHILE ON THE ROAD?
MYBOOKALARM CAN ONLY SEND NOTIFICATION IN CASE THERE IS AN ACTIVE INTERNET CONNECTION AVAILABLE. THUS YOU REALLY SHOULD THINK OF SETTING UP AN RESTRICTED GUEST ACCOUNT, ALLOWING A POTENTIAL THIEF TO ACCESS THE INTERNET.
AND PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR - READ THE VERBOSE HELP AND MANUAL AND MAKE USE OF THE SUPPORT - SECURING AND PROTECTING YOUR COMPUTER IS WORTH 5 MINUTES OF WORK, SOME READING AND IF NEEDED A LITTLE HELP!
