Prey is a small program ideal for laptops that allows the user to locate their device if it disappears or is stolen.
The program has a very quiet operation. We simply register, install it and leave it resting on our hard drive. It does not consume system resources and hardly occupies space on the hard disk, so it will not be any inconvenience.
From that moment on, if we ever lose our computer, we will simply have to go to the Prey website and activate the alert. We can notify you through messages on the screen that we have discovered it, take pictures if the laptop has a built-in webcam and, of course, locate it physically.
Prey is one of those programs that we hope we never have to use but should always have installed.
