What to know before using Prey on ChromeOS

Google allowed Android apps to freely run on this operating system, so our perfectly functional Android version is already working on it. It’s a Beta version and we are still adapting some of our features, so please mind that this release only works on models compatible with the Play Store ( See list below).

Two conditions must be fulfilled in order for Prey to run on the device: The Chromebook must be online, and the user needs to unlock it.

These are the currently active features:

  • Geolocation & Control Zones: Workin’ like a charm.
  • Alarm & Alert: Completely functional.
  • File Retrieval: Check! It grants access to the SD and Android directory.
  • Missing Mode Reports: All evidence is retrieved, except for MAC Address and Bios.

For Education and Enterprise customers they can manage this file-system migration remotely in the Admin console by utilizing a new migration setting.
