Well I would go so far as to say that a tracking solution shouldn't be your Plan A, but considering the price (of Prey anyways, which is free), the Internet is jam-packed with stories of stupid thieves who steal computers, and start using them as-is! Having no idea of course that the thing has tracking software on it, and that silently in the background the machine is calling home to mommy.
So I personally don't COUNT on the tracking software to save me, but why not! :big smile:
I'm pretty sure there are a lot of software that allows you to track the device and even more. Personally i know this app for android which allows you to basically know everything about what's happening to the pone including calls and messages. Pretty interesting, don't you think so? Also, it is able to track a location, surprise! I'm pretty sure you might find something similar for surface.
