Prey is a small but very useful program that is designed so that you can always track the location of your phone or laptop after installing the appropriate application. The latter will send a signal to track the movement of the device. An alarm transmits information about the device location, network connection status, temperature sensors, and, if desired, allows you to perform some operations with its contents.
Prey uses your GPS device or any available wireless network to collect location data. If the auto-connection is activated, the program will connect to the first open network. You can use your laptop's webcam or the phone's front camera to try to take a picture of your kidnapper so you know what he looks like. You can quickly delete all confidential data, messages in Thunderbird and Outlook, and erase all saved passwords, or completely block the device, making it impossible to work with it without entering a special password.
