Prey is a free application that aims to help you find your desktop or laptop computer if it is stolen. The program sends periodic reports on the location of the computer, including its general condition, a list of running programs, active network connections, detailed information about the local and Wi-Fi network, a photo of the desktop and even a photo of the thief if the system has a webcam .
Prey can also create a list of computer hardware or lock it completely and require a password.
If the thief connects to the Internet, the program will show the location of the laptop, and if your laptop has a camera, it will capture the criminal and the screen.
Prey usually works in stealth mode. In the event of a theft, you activate it and it starts looking for an active wireless internet point to send the data it has collected to the email.
