Find My Mac

Under the hood of Find My Mac there are some security details that are not widely published. These details should not concern most consumers however I found them quite interesting. When a user enables Find My Mac (FMM) on their computer this is a system level change. This means if a user wishes to enable FMM they must be an administrator of the computer. A result of this is that in most environments where students are standard users this feature should never be enabled by accident.
