Tried the latest version on my macbook running Snow Leopard. About 10 minutes after install and every 10 minutes the alert would come on my mac (even through prey was set to monitor every 20 minutes - go figure). The first time it locked the screen and asked for the password (good thing I caught the default password before exiting). All other times it just popped up an alert. This happened even when I did NOT mark the machine as missing. So I removed the mac from being tracked by Prey. Guess what?!? Still getting the message and alert - with the added bonus of not being able to go the the prey control panel and saying it's not missing - AGAIN. But I found a solution to this problem: I uninstalled prey and chucked the file right in the trash. By the way, the uninstall program is broken - no feedback as to whether the uninstall was a success - had to manually exit from the uninstall program also (it just sits there after clicking the uninstall button). Wait until prey hits 1.0 before using on a machine. By the way, installed on my wife's android phone - waiting for the angry call that her phone suddenly locked up on her for no reason also.

Not working well with High Sierra 13.3 on MacBook Pro (13" 2017 2xTB3 ports). Have installed and used HS patch but does not communicate with servers unless I manually connect device in web browser. V annoying - first problems I have had with this app for all the time (years) that I have been using it. I suspect some HS tweak/setting is responsible but can't track it down. Have reinstalled a number of times but without fail, 2 days later I get the msg that my MBP appears to be offline and is everything ok? I manually connect then wait 2 days for next email. was great under Sierra, not working under HSierra despite patch etc

Been using this as a background app on my MB Air, iPhone 6s and iPad 2 Air 3 device limit for free to track where my devices are easy to set up and accurately tracks my devices to within 20m or so all over the world as I travel. Nice options to flag a device is stolen or to lock it up (thankfully never had to use these options) but I would suggest others at least try the software - free to d/l and to use (up to 3 device limit). other plans for extra functions but free functions do me (and I suspect most users) just fine.
