- Prey Anti Theft
- Android, iOS
Many apps are handy or just fun, but there are few that help solve crimes. Apps that can trace smartphones can do that. The Maastricht police were able to arrest a guy on Sunday evening who had stolen a telephone with such an app earlier that day.
Prey Anti Theft goes one step further. Not only can it trace your telephone – which is handy if you can’t find it – but you can also use the app to remotely take photographs, set off an alarm on your phone, block access and collect the thief’s network information in order to determine his/her location more precisely.
The app also works on a laptop or tablet. When you register your device on the Prey Anti Theft website as having been stolen, you will receive regular reports about its location and what it is being used for.
