It’s not just your iPhone or iPad that can be vulnerable to theft – don’t forget your MacBook or even the Mac you use in a shared workspace. One solution is to physically tie it down using a steel tether, one end of which is connected to an immovable object.
Older Macs come with a Kensington lock slot, but newer models can also be made more secure with specific addons: the latest Mac Pro requires a Security Lock Adapter (£40, Apple Store), for example, while iMac users should check Kensington’s SafeDome (£80, kensington. com) and SafeStand (£100) solutions.
Securing your MacBook can be tricky – Kensington offers some solutions, but if you’ve got the latest iteration of MacBook Air, check out the Lock Bracket (£40, maclocks.co.uk), which clamps a wedge security slot to the base of your MacBook Air to help secure it.
There are also options for securing your mobile devices too – if you’re happy to glue a plate on to the back of your iPad or iPhone, MacLocks provides a universal tablet lock for around £30 plus add-ons, which works in the same way as the traditional Kensington lock slot.
