Have you ever imagine your laptop or phone being stolen and
all you could just say is ‘how I wish God will touch this person to just return
only my sim card’ eeh..! It sounds so weird when you can mercilessly track and
trace the thief down to where he/she lives.
 I know you are
already curious to know; but  relax your
mind lets take it step by step because I am still the pilot of this ship. Lol!
At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to keep track
of your Phone, System or Tablets.

How Do I Keep Track of My Phone And System When It Is

Let me introduce you
to PREY. Prey lets you keep track of your laptop, phone and tablet whenever
stolen or


missing — easily and all in one place. It’s lightweight, open source
software that gives you full and remote control of your device anytime and
anywhere. Prey will automatically get the details of the thief ranging from
photographs,phone number and email it to you without the thief being aware of

On a laptop with a
webcam, a Wi-Fi chip, and Prey installed, it’s a good bet you’ll have a photo
of your thief and an approximate location on them just as soon as they have
your computer running for a few minutes.

Prey currently
supports computers running Windows, Mac, or Linux to Android devices.

To begin with Prey,
follow this simple steps

1.       Download Prey here and click on
install to run on your system. During the installation period, create a new
account for your self and enter all your details as pictured below including
your device type


2.       Once you click on create, you
will receive a congratulation message telling you that your device is now set up and  being
tracked by prey.

3.       Head straight to their site and
login to your control panel with your user name and password – click on Device
– Click on Report(0) from the tracked device 
–  Click on  Main as pictured below


4.       It’s time to configure our
MODULES  so set the following parameters
as seen on the pic below


Once you are done,
save changes.

The most important
module to turn on is Geo, which uses Google’s Wi-FI location API to try and
triangulate a laptop’s location—or the GPS chip in an Android for very accurate
positioning. But you can turn on every thing for effective performance.

For Android Users

Android phones set up
with Prey actually have fewer reporting and alarm modules than laptops, but
they do have one unique feature: SIM card protection. One of the useful feature
is that you can set Prey to SMS the phone number of any new SIM that is
inserted into your phone to another number. So even if a thief replaces the SIM
card, you’ll have the new phone number you can use to report at the same time,
track the calls made with that phone.

5.       Finally, the moment  you noticed that
your phone or laptop is been stolen, just log in to your account and click on
missing and the tracker will begin to take snapshots, and details of the thief ;
immediately, you will receive the reports in your email account.

Track the thief and keep your device safe and secured. Don’t forget to ask question where you seems to be confuse.
