Prey for Windows 0.6.2

O. James Samson - December 25, 2013

Rarely do you find a program that does exactly what it says it would do these days. However, there are a couple of them that can do exactly what the publisher says it would do; and one of such programs is Prey. Take your time to go through the review in order to understand exactly what the program is all about.

What’s Prey?

Prey helps you track and find your laptop or phone if it ever gets out of sight. You can quickly find out what the thief looks like, what he’s doing on your device and actually where he’s hiding by using GPS or WiFi geopositioning. It’s payback time. Prey uses either the device’s GPS or the nearest WiFi hotspots to triangulate and grab a fix on its location.

Some other key features of the software include the following: hide your Outlook or Thunderbird data and optionally remove your stored passwords, so no one will be able to look into your stuff; fully lock down your PC, making it unusable unless a specific password is entered; it has very few dependencies and doesn’t even leave a memory footprint until activated; Prey can check its current version and automagically fetch and update itself, so you don’t need to manually reinstall each time; etc.

Any downside?

The tool will do just what it says; but the only worry is what if the thief wipes the hard drive?
