LapCop is a new and innovative stealth software application. In case your Mac gets stolen, LapCop secretly transmits an electronic beacon to an e-mail address of your choice. This stealth e-mail, containing the internet route to your Mac, together with information about its network settings, provides enough information to accurately track your Mac geographically.
Laptop theft has reached epidemic proportions worldwide: there were 591,000 laptops stolen in the USA in the year 2001 and according to a recent FBI report, 97% of all stolen computers are never recovered. That’s why programs similar to LapCop have seen a heavy demand on other platforms during the past months.
Since Macs are very popular among thieves, we decided to develop LapCop. While most other stealth programs just send you a daily e-mail containing all information about your laptop status, LapCop works smarter. It automatically detects when your Mac is stolen and goes into alarm mode. Once your stolen Mac gets connected, even for a very short time, LapCop will send a stealth e-mail. With this stealth e-mail the chances of catching a thief are pretty high for the police and other authorities and your case will get priority.
LapCop is written from the ground up for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. Feedback from beta testers has been incredibly positive. They suggested LapCop is worth US$30. As an introduction offer, LapCop is available now for only US$15. You can download LapCop for free from the SweetCocoa Web site. However, for safety reasons, LapCop will only start monitoring your Mac after registration.
