Hey guys,

 

So I just bought a brand new Macbook Pro today (granted, it's the mid-2012 model, but it's still new from the store).

 

I want to take all steps possible to prevent theft of this expensive device. I've noticed that under System Preferences -> Icloud, there is an option to turn on and off "Find My Mac". Is there a command that I can run via Terminal that will keep "Find My Mac" turned on at all costs, so that it is impossible to turn it off?

 

I know that System Preferences prompts for a password to turn it on or off, but I want something even more secure.

 

Is there a way to permanently enable location services via CLI? Thanks!
