Your rating: not submitted

Prey lets you keep track of your laptop or phone at all times, and will assist you find it if it ever gets lost or stolen. It's lightweight, open source program, and free for anyone to use.
Silent but deadly

Basically you install a small agent in your computer or phone, which quietly waits for a remote signal to wake up and work its magic.


100% geolocation aware
Prey works with either the device's GPS or the closest WiFi hotspots to triangulate and catch a fix on its location. It's very accurate.

Wifi autoconnect
If enabled, Prey will try to hook onto to the closest open WiFi hotspot when no Internet connection is discovered.

Watch their movements
Take a screenshot of the active session -- if you are lucky you may catch the guy logged into his Facebook account or email.

Keep your information safe
Hide your Thunderbird or Outlook data and optionally delete your stored passwords, so no one will be capable to look into your stuff.

No unauthorized access
Completely lock down your computer, making it useless unless a particular password is entered.

Scan your hardware
Get a full list of your PC's CPU, RAM, motherboard, and BIOS information.

Complete auto updater
Prey can check its actual version and automatically fetch and update itself, so you don't have to manually reinstall every time.


  • Easy to use.
