Our smartphones and tablets are already our most used and most loved gadget. Both Work and leisure data are stored there: photos, videos, projects, files... You name it. Missing them is a nightmare, isn't it? Do something then! Better safe than sorry.

Prey helps you with that. Once installed and set up, Prey helps you locate your lost or stolen phone, activate an alarm, take photos from your front camera, send messages to whoever has it and lock the phone with a password remotely.

In addition, you can set in real time from a browser any of those features (alarm, camera, GPS...) and make it run in real time.

Prey will send you automatically reports with location, phone status and photo to your browser dashboard. In addition, You can set the app to send a notification to a friend's phone in case your SIM is removed.

In brief, a comprehensive anti-theft app that can save you from losing all your data. Thieves' nightmare.
