Can I install Prey on my stolen device?
No. Well, not unless you have some kind of remote desktop app. If that’s not the case, then you won’t be able to track the device with Prey, since you need it to be installed and configured before you can track devices.
Why Prey won’t track my iPhone / iPad?
Apple makes it very difficult for apps to do powerful things such as tracking, mostly because of security measures. If you wish Prey to run on your phone, please don’t swipe and close Prey. EVER. Just leave it on the background and it’ll do its magic. While there, Prey won’t consume battery or memory, it will just be ready to run the next time you need it. You can learn more here.
