About this app

Prey is a tracking, data security and device management app with over 13 years of experience in locating misplaced phones, laptops, and tablets. Available for Android, Chromebooks, iOS, Windows, Ubuntu and MacOS. All devices are monitored under a single account and manageable from the mobile app or the online panel.

✦ Uninstalling Prey:
Please consider that we request you enable a permission to keep the app from being uninstalled. It's an extra security measure so the application cannot be removed without your authorization. You can uninstall the app from the login screen, deactivating said permission.

▸ The app suggests you disable the “Delete permissions if not used” option to ensure continuous protection.

▸ The 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 is only available on Android versions lower than 9. Android 9 and above include added restrictions that block this functionality.

▸ The app requires you grant access to Management of All Files in Android 12 or later. This permission allows for "File Retrieval" *Pro*, beyond images and videos.

▸ The app uses the Device Administrator permission. This allows the Remote Wipe and Lock feature's function *Pro*

▸ The App request access to location data in the background to enable the geotracking, and *Pro* geofencing, 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 for instructions specific to Huawei & Xiaomi devices.

▸ Our free plan is just a small test of what Prey can help you achieve. To access industry-leading device location and more, please consider our payed plans.

Update 6/21/2024 Have used the app for years. Have been able to recover two phones and one laptop. Being able to remotely lock/disable the phones was easy. I noticed a few comments about the shutter sound when remotely taking pictures with Prey. You will need to go into the camera setting in the phone to turn off shutter sound BEFORE it's lost/stolen (if that is an option for your phone). Some cell carriers do not allow you to disable the sound.
