Installed prey years ago. It was good for the time. I recently tested it on my devices after a factory reset.SMS commands are no longer hidden on receiving device. It could not locate my phone or send messages to it until I opened the prey app on the 'lost' device. Disappointing. Given Google now have ways to find/lock phones, they are better for me.
If sim is changed then the sms commands are useless. And also if there is no WiFi or data connection at the sim new sim. It would be impossible to activate prey. Add a feature so that if someone changes the sim, a SMS is sent from that sim to prey or a trusted no. So that we know the number of the new sim, where we can send those SMS commands. Please do it urgently.
I'm so frustrated with this app... it got to the point where it would no longer be able to find locations, so I decided to unintsall...only it won't let me. Tells me something about deactivating and the help Center tells you how to do so on the app, but there is nothing on the app that is listed in the removal. (There is no Global Settings anywhere on the stupid app) and I denied all the permissions for the app on my phone and it still didn't work.
Usually good stuff. But now the app keeps asking for new permissions for enabling remote lock, and it won't let me give required permissions! Tapping on the notification does nada. Nexus 5X phone and Pixel C tablet both have this issue.
Excellent App. I've had this paid service for some years now. I've tested and used it a few times and have alway found all my devices within a few metres from the exact spot. Couldn't ask for anything better.
The app’s promise is awesome, but for me it turned out to be nearly useless. Prey cannot turn on location services on its own on my Android 6.0 Asus Zenfone 2 when I set the phone to missing. It also failed to take a correctly exposed picture using the front-facing camera.
- Safer lock feature on this Android version. Give Prey permission to draw over other apps for it to work.
- This Android version requires you update Prey’s permissions in order for the app to generate reports. Camera, location and device status access are needed.
- Improved performance and bug fixes!
