How to setup your laptop/tablet/phone with Tracking Software in case you ever lose it ?

Some of the mobile phones as well as Laptops/Tablets like Apple provide Anti-theft security features, but most of the systems do not provide any kind of such security feature including Microsoft Windows systems. So if you want to have such feature in your system, then you will have to install a third-party software.
In this post, we are going to discuss about such a tool, which will help you to setup your laptop/tablet/phone with a good Tracking Software.
Prey is such a tool, which will help you to setup your laptop/tablet/phone with Tracking Software in case you ever lose it.

Prey tool is a tracking software for Windows, Macintosh, and even for the PCs running on Linux operating systems. Prey tool also offers tracking apps for mobile phone running on Android, iOS.

You can download this Prey from their website or click the link below to start the download automatically.


Once you have installed Prey, you will have to make a new user account on Prey, or you can also use your current account, if any.



Once, you are done with the user account, Prey will immediately start. You can configure Prey by opening the Prey Shortcut in the prey folder in the Start menu's program group.


You can always visit Prey's website i.e. preyproject.com and login with the same account details you entered on the Prey Software on the Computer. Here, you can see your computer as well as all the Prey configured devices.

If you lose your laptop/tablet/phone, then all you need to do is just login to your account on Prey website. Here you can select your lost device and set the slider from OK to Missing



Prey only tracks your missing laptop/tablet/phone when its slider is set to Missing, so it is not constantly tracking your laptop’s location. Also enable the Geo feature in your laptop/tablet/phone, which uses your laptop’s internal GPS hardware or the names of nearby Wi-Fi hotspots to report its location.

Once you’ve set your laptop/tablet/phone to missing, the status will change to “Tracked, waiting for report”. When the Prey software on your laptop checks itself with the Prey server or the Prey Website, it will receive a notification from the prey server that it has been marked as Missing and it will automatically generate a report.

Note : You’ll only receive the alert if the missing laptop is powered on and connected to the Internet as well as the Prey software must be still installed in it.
