It's also an easy target for thieves.

Whether you've been robbed or simply misplaced your computer, you can get it back using Prey. It's like a secret agent that lives in your computer, blocking any unauthorized access. All you need to do is send the device a signal via SMS messaging, or from the Internet.

Once a signal is sent, Prey will not only triangulate your computer's location using GPS or nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, it can also make a list of the thief's activity or snap a photo of his or her face using the webcam.

You can also set off alarms and show an onscreen message telling the thief to return your laptop.

And your protection doesn't end there. Prey will tell you all about the thief's activity on your computer, hide your email data, and will scan your hardware to make sure everything is in its place.

Use Prey to lock down your data and hide your passwords too.
