Full story below:

I installed Prey a long time ago on the device of my girlfriend, a bit secretly but she did know that I installed something in case of theft. Yesterday evening she sent me a message using her work phone telling me that she lost her phone and she was afraid that she left it somewhere, either in the office or in the hotel. I immediately logged in, got the location, and found out that the phone was somewhere near the office. I set the device to missing, locked the phone (just in case) and seconds later I got a message from Prey telling me that the device was still in the office. This morning I got a weird mugshot from my girlfriend.

If Prey wasn't installed, I would not have found the device again and I would have a pissed-off girlfriend in a foreign country making a fuzz over the phone.
