Operation Gringo Revenge: Tracking My Stolen Laptop In Panama
Surprise! You’re on Candid Camera
On Friday night Prey suddenly notified me by email that I had a new tracking report. You can imagine my surprise! I’d assumed that recovery was a lost cause at this point, now 3 months after the theft. At the moment I’m back in the United States.
I logged into the site. The report contained photos from my Macbook Pro’s integrated webcam, screenshots showing what the suspects were doing on my computer, and WiFi location information displayed on a Google Map.
These reports came streaming in every 10 minutes. After upgrading my account to Pro for $5, I’m now able to get reports every 2 minutes, or on demand with the click of a button.
I suddenly felt like a kid in a candy store!
Spying on the people using my stolen computer is soooooo much fun…
