How Prey SMS commands work

To use the SMS commands, please configure a PIN that will be your security number for triggering them.

For instance, using 0000 as your PIN:

  • prey PIN location phone_number = prey 0000 location [your device's location will be sent to that phone number.]
  • prey PIN lock lock_PIN = prey 0000 lock [sends you the password you'll use to unlock your screen whenever locked.]
  • prey PIN unlock = prey 0000 unlock
  • prey PIN alarm = prey 0000 alarm
  • prey PIN alert some_text = prey 0000 alert [triggers the message you want Prey to send to your device's screen.]
