Never get your laptop, tablet or phone stolen again!

My friend got his laptop stolen. He called police just to get it registered but that doesn’t really help much at most cases.

Later he remembered that long ago he found a nice piece of open source free software called Prey that makes easy to find stolen laptop. So he logged into Prey website and marked his laptop as stolen. Now Prey starts looking for the nearest WIFI hotspot and once it gets online it will start sending you information line: location info with IP addresses and WIFI connection info, screenshots from computer usage and also tries to capture the webcam shots.

It works also on smartphones and tablets so basically if your device gets stolen you start getting information about it location on map, see for example the Facebook profile of your enemy and if you have webcam then also his/her face!
