The Lost Mode feature of Find My Mac will remotely lock the Mac with a firmware password for one-time use. The user's Mac receives the lock instruction from iCloud, restarts, and asks for the system lock PIN code that they set up. After entering the passcode the Mac starts up from the designated startup disk and disables the passcode. In the latest Mac systems it also is quite secure and cannot be easily circumvented by changing hardware configurations like RAM, so this will provide a good lock for the system's hardware. The lock should now be removed. Do this for every drive that appears as locked. Find your home folder and right click it, then select Get Info. Look under the Sharing & Permissions section. If the padlock is locked then click it, enter your password if you have one and click OK. Click the + button, click on your username and click Select.
