Did I Forget Something?:

I must have left the phone at the register while buying my groceries, and when I drove home and reached for my phone in my pocket… It wasn’t there. I went back to the car to see if it had fallen out on the seat, but it was not there.

I recalled having it at the store, so I had a sinking feeling that I had left it there. I immediatly got on my laptop and logged into Prey, I was able to see where my phone was on the map and confirmed that it was indeed still at the grocery store.

When I went there, workers at the store had found the phone and were keeping it for me.

It’s great to have some peace of mind knowing I can look up where my phone is. Adding a message on the lock screen, the remote lock, plus all the other options make it a must have app for me! Essential.

Thank you Prey!
