Every day we read in the news about laptops getting stolen, sometimes from the backs of cars or from under seats in coffee shops, maybe from hotel rooms and even from inside our homes, anywhere in fact.
Laptops are valuable, not so much even for the technology they carry but because they tend to contain a lot of personal details. We all know the hassle and worry that can come if someone steals our identity.
Getting the laptop back is not so straightforward. Realistically, once it has gone from your sights you’re highly unlikely to ever see it again, unless of course you have “Prey”.
Prey is a free open source application that is compatible with all operating systems and if you have it installed in your laptop you just might have a chance.
