You work out of your laptop or desktop for most of the day, or even from your phone, when you’re running on-the- go. And when someone else gets their hands on these devices, things can get pretty frustrating and hopeless. Now Prey Project makes sure that you can keep track of your laptop, PC or smartphone through the groundbreaking Prey software. This open source software acts like an internal police installed in your device of choice, so you can track down the bandit and retrieve your desktop or phone, easy and fast.
Perhaps one of the best things about the Prey Project software is that the thieves don’t know it’s actually there. Once you install the software in your PC or app in your phone, it essentially works two ways – a signal is launched either from the Internet or through SMS messaging – so that you can keep track of the actual location of the device, maintain control at all times and recover everything in a snap. Not only does the system allow you to obtain all the data you need while pursuing the case, you can also control passwords and even let the crook know that his actions are futile – a good way to get even and get back at the bad guys.
All the good features
The software comes with full features, so you can locate the device seamlessly and bar all access to your computer or phone, rendering any unauthorized operation futile. Locating the device is accomplished through GPS or the most accessible WiFi hotspot. There are also features that allow you to lock passwords, scan hardware components, or to familiarize yourself with the culprit – either to take their picture through the laptop webcam or monitor their actions through timely screenshots.
Prey Project offers an open source version of the software, as well as an upgraded version for a reasonable payment scheme. The Pro Accounts allow for the tracking of numerous devices, and rates are anywhere from $5 to $399 per month.
