About this app

Prey is a tracking, data security and device management app with over 10 years of experience in locating lost phones, laptops, and tablets. Available for Android, Chromebooks, iOS, Windows, Linux, Ubuntu and macOS. All devices are monitored under a single account and manageable from the mobile app or the online panel.

**Important**:

- This app requests Accessibility services when using the "Lock" feature. Accessibility is used to block the device, showing an "Access Denied" screen overlay.

- The Power Button Lock feature, it only available on Android versions lower than 9. Android 9 and above include added restrictions that block this functionality.

- This app uses the Device Administrator permission. This allows the Remote Wipe and Lock feature's function

- This App request access to location data in the background to enable the geo-tracking, geofencing, and location history features even when the app is not in use. While most Android devices will automatically request all necessary permissions, some need additional ones to be granted manually. Check help.preyproject.com for instructions specific to Huawei & Xiaomi devices.

ABOUT PREY
Our company was born in Chile, with an app that originated in theft itself when the founder’s laptop was stolen. After long, hard work, and many improvements, we grew to become a global solution that focuses on two missions: to help our users worry less about theft, and give them the tools to stand a chance when losing devices, and their data.

I installed the app at least a year ago, and it was working great. However, I realized today it hasn't tracked my phone in months. So, I wanted to logon and check, but I'm greeted with a file not found error and a stuck loading screen. Even uninstalling and reinstalling gives me the same issues. What a disappointment. As a result, this is getting 1-star from me and a permanent uninstall unless the problems are addressed.

Does what it says it will do! Really good app! Only wish it used a better map program like Google maps. And in the map view the screen showing you were the device is, is so large it covers most of the map itself. Also when the app is in "missing mode" the pictures it takes on a mobile device is FAR from silent. Can clearly here the shudder sound like a normal camera, and it happens so much it would be really difficult for someone to not notice.

It's pretty good. I was able to add both my laptop and my phone, but the control zone feature doesn't seem to work very well on my phone. I can't create control zones using my phone, as entering the address doesn't change the location of the zone. The option to put the pin down (presumably on the menu with the zoom in/out buttons) is also cut off. Otherwise, a good app.
