Mac OS X Lion Login Contact Details Message

Screen lock text on Mac OS X Lion

Hey call me! (and give my laptop back)

In Mac OS X Lion you can now add a short message to the login screen. It’s a long shot but adding contact details might increase the chances of a lost machine being recovered by 0.5%.

To update the message go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General where you can choose Show a message when the screen is locked.

Don’t forgot to use your own number, although I am happy for any lost laptops to be sent to me.
