Lost Mode Now Available on Linux Devices

March 9th, 2021

Early in January, we introduced Lost Mode for Mac, a beta feature in which the security team and end-users can work together to locate a device that was either misplaced or stolen. We are now excited to announce this same functionality is now available on Linux devices!

Just like Lost Mode for Mac, this new feature survey’s nearby WiFI Access Points to help determine the Linux device’s precise geolocation. Also just like Lost Mode for Mac, we consider this an extremely sensitive operation which requires informed end-user consent each time it is used.

You can learn more about Lost Mode by reading our help article!

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with feedback or questions! 

Wondering about Windows support? Well, a little birdie told me that we might have something to say about that before the end of March. Stay tuned!
