I have this friend from Toledo who is being issued a company MBP and wants to ensure that the office isn't tracking all her movements around town. I suggested a faraday bag, but I'm not sure if there are any "must have" features with them, or "best" companies to buy from... anybody ever deal with this?

The machine will connect to the web whenever it can and will report its location. If she has admin on the machine she can disable certain things but once it connects to the internet it will do its thing. Likely the company has a custom profile that will limit the ability to change some settings.

Personally I've not used a Faraday Bag but good ones do work. The best I would say is have your friend read reviews about them and "trust" those reviews. Unless she can connect the "Find My" to her iCloud account. Then she can test it herself by bagging it in a known location and moving it to another location and see if it follows.

For giggles I did a quick search and you can get a sleeve for about $70. Then your friend (wink wink) can use a normal bag but put the MBP in the faraday bag. That way the bag doesn't have to be ugly but still wirelessly isolate itself.

Yes, "she".

From "Toledo".

Thanks for the input y'all, it was helpful.

Girl Toledos are to be avoided at all costs. I think we ban them on sight.
