Hi folks, so all of us have experienced or know someone who has experienced a lost or stolen laptop. The questions is how do you retrieve it after it’s gone?
Well enter the Prey Project! The Prey Project is an open source project that has developed an agent that will install on your computer and report back to you via the web accessible control panel. There is also a standalone version as well.
The software will turn on the webcam and attempt to take a picture of the suspect and it can use wifi and gps to location your laptop. Then you can login to the web control panel and see what’s going on.
