"Works ... sometimes - Support = Never"

January 27, 2015  |  By fairplay92

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

Easily able to set it up to monitor phone, laptop, netbook

Cons

When replaced netbook and removed old netbook from online account and installed Prey on new netbook and signed it in, new netbook never showed up on online account to add to monitoring - FAQ said reinstall, which I did half a dozen times but with no success in getting the online account to see the laptop -- e-mail to support when unanswered for a week now

Summary

Product seems to be deteriorating in quality - Support seems to be non-existent - Seems like they have other things they would rather be doing than maintain

"Can some tell me how"

July 15, 2014  |  By TECHCRZY

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

The hell this unknown software made it in the (Best apps for Windows) section?

Cons

Is there some kind of monetary shuffles going on here?

Summary

Gave it 2 1/2 stars because i wanted to ask someone how the hell did this software make it in the (Best apps for Windows) section?

"Free, Hell! $162 and no refund"

December 11, 2013  |  By scrappydo2

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

The program downloaded and installed on my Windows machine. I had no need to use it as nothing was stolen, thank goodness.

Cons

I got suckered into paying their $162 fee near the end of my "trial" period. I canceled my account and tried to get a refund. Nope! Stay away from this rip-off gimmick. It seemed like a win-win to start with. Maybe the Chinese company (Fork Ltd) has something to do with the changes and new charges.

Summary

Very practical utility however, the service fee ($162) is way too steep. Stay away from this software!

"AVOID this dodgy software ! don't install it !"

May 01, 2013  |  By Benismm

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

don't really care now as it changed my browser search engine and home page without even asking !

Cons

1-it changes all your browsers homepage and search engines to some dodgy search engine and even if you try to change it , the next time you restart you system , it's gonna be there again !!
2-difficult to understand how the whole thing works !!
3-you can't even uninstall it !

Summary

Just avoid this software or expect your homepage and search engines change for ever !! you probably can't even find out how to use this software in case of losing your laptop

"BEWARE!! CHANGES HOMEPAGE & SEARCH WITHOUT CHOICE"

January 10, 2013  |  By RogerCary

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

Just installed & haven't set up yet so can't say.

Cons

CHANGES YOUR HOMEPAGE & SEARCH PROVIDER WITH NO WAY TO OPT OUT OF THESE CHANGES. You can opt out of installing their toolbar however.

Summary

If you don't know how to change your homepage & search provider you may want to stay clear of this software.

"want your stuff back after having it stolen?"

December 25, 2012  |  By the_fork

 |  Version: Prey Anti-Theft 0.5.3

Pros

look at what a thief does....after they have committed their crime. watch their expression when they receive an email from you demanding they return your goods. the police even like this

Cons

rarely gets used, fortunately

Summary

if this is not the first piece of software on a new computer, then you are doing it wrong. do not forget to create a second user profile with no password, and re name the installation and heavily password protect your own log in profile
