    Exclamation IT remote lockout (urgent)

    So I work at a tech company and am taking 3 weeks leave of absence - we all use Apple and I have a MacBook Air. IT has an admin login and I have a unique login with my own password that they don't know (has admin rights too). Anyways they remote locked my computer (standard procedure) and it's asking for a 6 digit code after restarting on its own. My question is - when they type that code in and unlock it, will the private browsing safari window with questionable content reopen for them or did the restart likely close all applications?

    My apologies but I've been away and have only just seen this, so it may very well be too late, but an interesting question all the same. I couldn't find the answer to this online so did a quick experiment. If you have Safari open with a private window open and restart your Mac with the "Reopen windows when logging back in" option checked, Safari AND the private window will open as before. In your case I would suspect that the restart will not have closed Safari unless thereare any company-specific scripts that run during this procedure.
