Undercover overview

Note: Undercover is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Undercover routinely checks with the Undercover server. In case of theft, the Mac's unique Undercover ID is added to the list on the Undercover server, initiating the recovery process. During the recovery phase, Undercover transmits its current location on the internet, enabling the Undercover team to identify the computer's exact physical location. Moreover, Undercover also sends screenshots of the stolen Mac, revealing details of the thief's identity. The Undercover recovery center will then work with law enforcement to recover the Mac.

In case recovery fails, the software has an ingenious plan B: it will simulate a hardware failure, urging the thief to send the computer in for repair or sell it. As soon as the thief gets rid of the Mac, Undercover will warn the new user that the Mac has been stolen and that it should be returned as soon as possible. The computer will shout from time to time that it has been stolen and Undercover will take over the screen, displaying how the Mac can be returned while making the computer unusable.

Bought a multi-Mac license in 2017. I did not have any Macs stolen, and never tested it. It caused no problems at the time. However, Undercover eventually caused problems on old Macs that hadn't been started in months (and therefore hadn't connected to the network), also with bootable external drives by blocking boot / login and speaking that they had been stolen. If the Undercover install disk image was on the Mac or drive in question, I couldn't get at it to run the uninstaller. Manual uninstall IS possible (at least for old versions of Undercover installed on old Macs and external FireWire drives), but it a significant hassle and technical challenge (as it should be). This software is REALLY persistent. So... I'm impressed.

Excellent application ! but today I received bad news by mail (September 30th, 2019): Dear Undercover user, After 14 years of Undercover recovery successes, we need to inform you that we’ll no longer be developing or supporting Undercover. All Undercover support will stop on Jan. 1st 2020.
