Prey helps you retrieve your lost or stolen phone, tablet and laptop. Prey is 100% FREE and you can protect up to 3 devices with one single account.
Prey works on all major operating systems, so it lets you keep track and trigger actions on all your devices from a single place. Like a universal remote control, but for laptops and mobiles.
Download Prey on the devices you want to protect and configure your account so you can:
- Find your phone on a map through geolocation using both GPS and WiFi triangulation - Get reports with pictures taken with your device, screenshots and location (the crucial piece of data that police officers need to take action) - Lock your device - Trigger a loud alarm remotely even if your phone is put on silent - Display a tailored alert message on the screen - Gather the network information that your device is connected to (for accurate pinpointing)
We should mention that sensitive data is gathered only when you request it, and is for your eyes only ‐ nothing is sent without your permission. You can always check our source code if you want to make sure.
