Locate Missing Laptop or Mobile and Catch Stealer
If your laptop or Mobile (Android) has been stolen, then there is a way you can get it back right away and catch the stealer (thief) red handed. This program uses internet connection to send you information of stealer’s whereabouts and if thief is not connected to internet, the program attempts to connect to the nearest open wifi access point available. This gives you a better chance to locate the device. Prey helps you locate your missing laptop or Mobile by sending timed reports with a bunch of information of its whereabouts. This includes the general status of the computer, a list of running programs and active connections, fully-detailed network and wifi information, a screenshot of the running desktop and — in case your laptop has an integrated webcam — a picture of the thief (a picture of the guy who’s using the computer). What more could you ask.
Prey is a lightweight application that will help you track and find your laptop if it ever gets stolen. It works in all operating systems and not only is it Open Source but also completely free. Prey uses a remote activation system which means the program sits silently in your computer until you actually want it to run. If so, it gathers all the information and sends it to your Prey web control panel or directly to your mailbox. The thief will never know his movements are being watched.
