Install Prey on your Phone/Laptop/Tablet to get it back if stolen


Most people these days are walking round with very expensive tech in their pockets… and yet if someone grabs it out of your hand there isn’t much hope of getting it back right? Wrong! If you take a few minutes to install a free open-source program called Prey on your tech and then once it’s stolen you activate it, at which point it will start sending you screenshots from the device (pretty useful if the thief goes onto Facebook, thus exposing their name) it will also show location data if available and take pictures with an inbuilt camera if the device has one. If you still aren’t convinced checkout this story on lifehacker.com:
