Here’s how Prey works…
You install a tiny agent in your PC, Mac, or phone, and that agent silently waits for a remote signal to wake up and work its magic.This signal is sent either from the Internet or through an SMS message, and allows you to gather information regarding the device’s location, hardware and network status, and optionally trigger specific actions on it.
Let’s take a look at Prey’s features…
- Sends incredibly accurate location updates.
- Snaps pictures of the thief with the devices built-in camera.
- Tracks which files have been accessed or changed on your system.
- Grab screenshots of what the thief is doing on your computer.
- Tracks which programs the thief has running.
