Prey is the free application that helps to detect where it is a device, either a computer or a mobile phone.
Have you ever had your house entered by thieves in a situation in which your computer or mobile phone had been stolen? And you would like to know where your devices are? So Prey is the ideal application for this, since it detects and informs the user the location of their devices.
Prey is a simple but very useful application with a lot of services. It can provide precise information of where is your smartphone, laptop or tablet in the event that you forget it somewhere or someone steals it.
Prey works as a silent finder activated by a remote signal that sends the information to the mobile or via Internet. In Prey you get information of the networks, status, location and other options of the equipment in which the program was installed in.
The discrete Prey is so good that you can even turn on the computer's webcam and take a picture of who is using the equipment now, lock the computer, review the hardware, watch the movements of the desktop and eliminate passwords. All this is done remotely and through Prey.
To use Prey you must have a user account. It's as simple as signing in the program page, downloading and starting it on your computer. It does not interfere with other programs or delay the operating system and you'll be cool with this software taking care of your equipment.
