Our User’s Story: The New Friend.

I put my groceries and my laptop case near the garage door to close the door, but because it was too dark, I somehow forgot to pick up the laptop!

After reporting the device as missing and sending a message to my laptop, I waited and the next morning I got a report from Prey with the exact location. Then, a few minutes later, I got an email from a person who had found my laptop.

He asked me to call him to arrange the return, and I got it back. Seems like I’ve made a new friend this way, thank you! 🙂

Final thoughts: Relieved. Not only did I save the money for a new laptop, but I’m also relieved that my data is safe.
