I feel a bit bad for not have been writing this earlier - but in Sweden we have a saying: "Bättre sent än aldrig", which translates to something like "It's better to be late then never do it."
Anyway, I'd like to represent to you: Prey!
Prey is a must have application on every and all of your electronic devices. Do you have a tablet, computer (desktop or laptop) or a phone (one of them or all, no matter), you should absolutely have this installed and configured!
It is an application that will help you if the unspeakable would happend: you're device gets stolen or lost. If that would happend, you can easly login on Prey's website and set your device to missing and then it'll start sending reports back to the Prey Dashboard, which includes, position data, (in some cases) pictures, Facebook accounts that the "new" user uses and much, much more stuff. Data that you could give to the authorities! Data that will help you get your device back!
The installation varies from Android, to iPhone, from Linux, to Windows, to Mac OS X, but it pretty alike and very easy and straight forward.
- Install the application on your device.
- Follow the installation instructions.
- Confirm your account.
- Finalize the device settings on your Prey Dashboard.
- Add another device (up to three for free).
Now you are good to go! Which in Prey's case is nothing more. You won't have to do anything more (unless you're device get lost). Prey just sits in the background and doesn't at all give itself up.
What are you waiting for?! Install it!
