Phys­i­cal se­cu­rity

Mac Format - - PROTECT YOUR MAC -

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.
