Free Software to Find Lost Phone & Laptop

Prey

Many travelers carry their mobile phone and laptop with them; but, losing your phone or laptop could turn your trip to unpleasant experiences. Prey is a free software you can use to track your phone and laptop.

Prey lets you keep track of your phone or laptop at all times, and will help you find it if it ever gets lost or stolen. It’s lightweight, open source software, and free for anyone to use. And it just works. Watch the video below and see how it works:

Basically you install a tiny agent in your computer or phone, which silently waits for a remote signal to wake up and work its magic.

This signal is sent either from the Internet or through an SMS message, and allows you to gather information regarding the device’s location, hardware and network status, and optionally trigger specific actions on it.

The most amazing feature I like is, Prey can take a picture of the thief with your laptop’s webcam so you know what he looks like and where he’s hiding. Powerful evidence!

It covers Windows, Mac OS, Android, Ubuntu, and Linux. Hopefully it will launch an iPhone version soon.

You can download Prey here; do install a software like this before you travel overseas!
