Prey's home website says it will only gather information when requested. Why is Prey accessing my camera to take pictures when I am not requesting any information? I can see my webcam light up every now and again which it has only done once I installed this software. I am not going to use this software if it's taking pictures without me requesting them.
That problem happens to me too. But they are saying that they are not gathering information when not requested.
Has anyone had an answer to this? My daughters webcam light is regularly flashing even though the device is not reported missing. Kaspersky also confirmed that it was Prey accessing the Webcam. This would give any potential thief advanced warning that they might be photographed, not to mention that it freaked my daughter out thinking someone was spying on her!
Hi , it seems to me that you have enabled the prey reports, in other words your device was marked as missing. To confirm that enter to the prey panel and see if your device is missing, you should see an image like this:
Hi @Dave_Smith, if your device is not missing and the camera continues flashing try marking the device missing and then recovered again. Let me know if that fixes the problem.
