Our User’s Story: Lost in a Park After a Night Out

I was coming back to my place at 4 am when I noticed that my phone wasn’t in my pocket. I came back all the way searching for it in the streets and in parks and didn’t find it. After I got home I turned on the computer because I remembered that I had this app (Prey) and started searching.

I noticed that the phone was in a park, where I had already searched for it for like 3 hours until suddenly it appeared kilometers away!

I tried to call myself from my mom’s phone and somebody picked up the phone and we spoke, he told me he had found it in that park thanks to the alarm I was ringing from the app. Couple hours later he returned my phone and I gave him 20 bucks for being honest and having returned my phone.

Final thoughts: Felt great! I’m going to recommend this app to everyone I know.

When things like this happen, better be ready.
