According to a recent FBI report, 97% of all stolen computers are never recovered. Many people we know have had their Macs stolen, often in 'safe' situations. That's why we developed Undercover: a unique theft-recovery application designed from the ground up for Mac OS X.
Accurately locate your stolen Mac
Undercover transmits location information from the stolen Mac. This information includes the coordinates from wireless location tracking, and the internal and external IP addresses, enabling the police to accurately trace the Mac's physical location, in collaboration with the Internet Service Provider.
"Having your Mac stolen can be heartbreaking, but if you have Orbicule Undercover installed, you've an excellent chance of tracking it down."
See who is using your Mac
If your Mac has a built-in or external camera, Undercover will transmit pictures of the thief and his surroundings every 8 minutes, making it even easier to identify the current user.
"If you're toting around an expensive MacBook on your travels, Undercover would be a wise addition to your software setup. It'll be too late to install it when the Mac's been stolen."
See what happens on your Mac
Undercover was the world's first theft-recovery software to send screenshots of your stolen Mac at regular intervals. These screenshots will sooner or later reveal the thief's identity (e.g. when chatting, reading or writing emails, etc.) which makes it much easier to work with law enforcement in order to recover your Mac.
"Great, finally auto-updating ! :)"
See what the thief is typing
When the Mac is marked as stolen, Undercover will continuously record keystrokes, allowing you to view every bit of text the thief has entered on your stolen Mac (except for passwords).
... and see it all live
Undercover's new on demand feature enables you to request locations, screenshots and photos whenever your stolen Mac is online.
New: Undercover Watch!
Undercover Watch can monitor your Mac and activate the recovery procedure when it leaves your network. It can also activate automatically when a thief uses the dummy account.
