THIEF BUSTER STOPS THIEVES STEALING YOUR LAPTOP!!
+SCARES THIEVES when they try to take your laptop
+STARTS A LOUD ALARM when lid is closed or power disconnected
+SENDS PHOTOS of the thief to you by email
+GIVES LOUD SPEECH WARNINGS (customizable text and voice)
HOW IT WORKS:
+ARM YOUR COMPUTER with a single click from the menu bar.
+COMPUTER IS ARMED, SCREEN IS LOCKED, PHOTOS ARE BEING TAKEN.
+THIEF BUSTER PROTECTS YOUR COMPUTER UNTIL YOU ENTER PASSWORD.
+CLOSING LID OR POWER LOSS (if cord was connected) TRIGGERS ALARM.
+GIVES SPEECH WARNINGS first (voice and text can be customized in preferences)
+ALARM STARTS (volume level cannot be changed or muted)
+DISARM WITH PASSWORD.
WORKS ON BOTH MACBOOK AND MACBOOK AIR.
Your Thief Buster protected computer will give voice warnings and start a loud alarm noise if someone tries to disconnect it from the power cord or closes the lid. Using the power cord is not necessary, but recommended.
While it is armed Thief Buster continuously takes photos with the built in Webcam, so if someone disconnects or closes the lid it automatically sends the owner an email with a few pictures taken prior to the trigger event.
The alarm can be disabled by simply entering your password.
Note: When the lid is closed, the computer enters (forced) sleep mode, which sometimes prevents the email being sent. If the lid is opened again it tries to send another alarm message if network is still available.

Not very sercure. - I wish that the alarm will ring if they try to hold down the power button force it to shut down or when you eject disc and when you don't have internet when the alarm rings it should wait when it has internet and send the photos. If it has these features I would rate it 5 stars!
WORTHLESS! - This is a piece of junk APP! Every feature is useless if you're using it as "ANTI THEIF". Removing the powercord after you close the Mac will not Sound the ALARM! You have to open the lid for the alarm to sound. What is the point? THe theif won't open the laptop before he takes it. JUNK! Don't get this app!

Not working as advertised - The software does not trigger alarm after lid closed. You must open the lid for alarm to sound. A person stealing my laptop will be long gone when the lid is open. This isn't acceptable.
A waste of $5 - As other reviews indicate, this app really isn’t very functional. When the lid of the macbook is closed, it enters forced sleep mode. The app only sounds the alarm or sends the email pictures when the lid is reopened. If the app could stop the forced sleep mode, it would work. Otherwise, don’t bother.
It worked for me - It set the alarm after I closed the lid or disconected the power cord, and it sent the pictures of myself when I triggered the alarm.
