Mac OS X Lion gets a “Restart to Safari” browser-only mode Honeypot feature

Monday, June 13, 2011

MacRumors was digging through the latest developer beta of Mac OS X Lion when it found a rather intriguing new option — if you choose “Restart to Safari” on the user lock screen, the computer will reboot into a mode which consists entirely of the web browser. This is actually the new honeypot feature in Lion. If your Mac gets stolen, the idea goes, it'll need to be connected to the internet for you to be able to track it with Find My Mac or perform a remote wipe, so you'll let the thieves browse this guest account to keep them busy without letting them peruse your personal files. Smart idea? Well depends on how smart the thieves are too.
