What to do when your mac or ipad or iphone is stolen. This is a horrible post to have to write. My house just got broken in to and my macbook pro and my ipad got stolen, along with three other laptops.
Here is a list of things I did, and the things to do if this happens to you:
What to do when your mac or ipad or iphone is stolen
1) phone the police.
they will give you a crime scene number. you need this. also, they have sirens and forensics, which makes you feel better and is generally cool.
2) go here apple support
log in and get the serial numbers of your stuff. give it to the police. they can use the numbers if they find your gear to tie it to you. tell the police that your stuff may be able to tell you where it is, show them #3
3) go to ‘find my iphone’
click each device and click the ’email me when located’. you do have find my iphone installed and activated, right?
4) change all your passwords
(banking, credit cards, email, social networks, paypal, amazon – everything)
5) phone your bank
report missing personal details and cards, just incase. tell them you got broken into and personal details could have been stolen, they will flag your account to watch for suspicious transactions.
6) phone your insurance
tell them everything thats gone missing and report any building damage, give them your police crime number from #1
