PREY (PREY ANTI-THEFT) is an online service for the remote tracking of electronic devices through a web interface (the “Control Panel” or “Panel” indistinctively). We must install our software (the “Agent” or “The Client” indistinctively) in the devices you wish to protect and have an Internet connection to transfer data between our servers and the device. The Panel allows users to remotely access to the devices that they had added to its accounts and checked as “missing”, as well as retrieve files, block the device, locate it and run some remote actions, such as activating alarms or sending messages.
The file retrieval functionality is a supplementary service of PREY, which should only be used as a temporary system to access the files in your devices in the event of emergencies. It is forbidden to use it as a storage or backup system. Files will be removed fifteen (15) days after the upload is completed. The software Agent for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android has an open-source license (GPLv3). The source code of our Panel and all server side instructions are proprietary of Prey Inc. and they shall not be used, modified or distributed without our express consent.
