Download Prey 1.5.1

Prey is an anti-theft tracking software for your laptop, phone and tablet that lets you remotely locate, lock, wipe and recover it if ever stolen, or simply missing.

It's lightweight, open source software, and free for anyone to use. And it just works.

How it works

Basically you install a tiny agent in your PC or phone, which silently waits for a remote signal to wake up and work its magic.

This signal is sent either from the Internet or through an SMS message, and allows you to gather information regarding the device's location, hardware and network status, and optionally trigger specific actions on it.

What's New:

  • Response encryption: Prey now supports 128 bit AES decryption for response bodies, which means that all data sent by the Control Panel will be encrypted with a salted secret key, rending theoretical man-in-the-middle attacks impossible. We'll be deploying this gradually during the next days.
  • We also added a check to prevent malitious code execution through config values in the response XML. (Issue #85)
  • Better way of knowing if On-Demand is still active or not, using timestamps from the keepalive pings sent by the server. This should fix the issue that prevented some users from switching back to Interval mode.
  • Lots of code cleanups, removed duplicate or unused stuff. We're also switching backticks for $() calls, which is much easier to read.
  • Small improvements to the auto update process.
  • Initial support for Prey to be run as a non-root user. On Ubuntu we were able to run as a third user with some sudo permissions. Once we get it working on Mac we'll switch over and not run Prey as root any more (yes, we heard you guys).
  • Support for SMTP servers which don't require authentication. Simply leave the SMTP user/pass fields blank and you're set. Passwords with spaces should also work.
  • Added a simple SMTP user/pass verification routing in check mode (Standalone users).
