Having one's smartphone stolen can be a dead end situation to many, leading platforms such as Prey to be an asset on collecting information about the individual that has acquired the stolen phone. The app is able to accept commands when the smartphone has been separated from its owner, and provide updates on unidentified usage to help consumers retrieve their lost property.

Often times losing a smartphone can mean it is gone forever, which is why platforms such as Prey can be quite handy. The app allows owners to access the camera features to collect evidence by capturing images of the person using it, screenshots of apps used and more. The evidence is sent to the user's Prey account, allowing them to use the information as evidence to the authorities.
