Track down your stolen laptop

Your laptop is so much more than a mobile workstation. It's jam-packed with your personal information, sensitive data, photos and every bit of software or music you've ever downloaded.

It's also an easy target for thieves who are waiting for you to turn your back at the library or your favorite coffee shop, so they can get away with your computer. In just a few seconds, they can snatch your machine, because it's small, portable and easy to grab when you're not paying attention.

Whether you've been robbed or simply misplaced your computer, you can get it back using Prey. It's like a secret agent that lives in your computer, blocking any unauthorized access.

Once a signal is sent, Prey will not only triangulate your computer's location using GPS or nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, it can also make a list of the thief's activity or snap a photo of his or her face using the webcam.

You can also set off alarms and show an onscreen message telling the thief to return your laptop. Use Prey to lock down your data and hide your passwords, too.

And your protection doesn't end there. Prey will tell you all about the thief's activity on your computer, hide your email data, and will scan your hardware to make sure everything is in its place.
