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 computer’s location, 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.
