What would you do if your laptop, phone or tablet was stolen or misplaced?
What about all of your personal information, sensitive data from your job or business, and every bit of software and music you've ever downloaded?
Your mobile device could have hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of data saved in it. It's convenient for you to carry around, but that means it's also convenient for thieves and muggers to steal.
How would you like free software that lives in your mobile device and, in case of theft; you can send it a signal using the Web or even a text message?
This free software does some amazing stuff!
100% geolocation aware: Prey uses either the device's GPS or the nearest WiFi hotspots to triangulate and grab a fix on its location. It's shockingly accurate.
Wifi autoconnect: If enabled, Prey will attempt to hook onto to the nearest open WiFi hotspot when no Internet connection is found.
Light as a feather: Prey has very few dependencies and doesn't even leave a memory footprint until activated. We care as much as you do.
Know your thief: Take a picture of the thief with your laptop's webcam so you know what he looks like and where he's hiding. This is powerful evidence.
Watch their movements: Grab a screenshot of the active session -- if you're lucky you may catch the guy logged into his email or Facebook account!
Keep your data safe: Hide your Outlook or Thunderbird data and optionally remove your stored passwords, so no one will be able to look into your stuff.
No unauthorized access: Fully lock down your PC, making it unusable unless a specific password is entered. The guy won't be able to do a thing!
