With the rising cost of iPhones, its, never sorry to be safe. Although iPhones (and this even works for Android) have Find my iPhone, that, sometimes has been known to be a little wonky and often requires that the phone has a data connection to do so. So, what if you find yourself in a situation where Find my iPhone isn’t working? Never fear, our friends over at the Prey Project have you covered.
Prey Project works in a fairly similar manner to Find my iPhone except the difference is is that it keeps records of all locations; maps, etc on the device (laptops; phones, tablets, etc). Unlike Find my iPhone, Prey Project connects to the device throughout the day and leaves a record in the website control panel of all actions and stuff.
Prey is absolutely free (unless you have more than three devices) and is $5 a month for what they consider the “Family plan”. Pre is an absolute essential in a world where just about anybody can steal and then later break into your phone. On some devices Prey Project will even take a picture of the intruder and send it to your e-mail. Similar to FMI, Prey also features “sound; lock, message, and locate features” in lost mode.
We definitely recommend this because it provides an extra layer of security in the event that someone has managed to disable your FMI service. The good thing about Prey is that it has an option to disguise the app as a game rather than leave it out in the open.
