    any experience with this?

    sounds really interesting.
    it just creeps me out thinking someone could be watching me.
    they state on the website that privacy is 100% respected.
    still...

    I've been using it for a year or two and would highly recommend using it. And people aren't watching you, if your computer were to go missing, you simply turn on a switch on the website and it takes pictures of the location/thief.

    I too have been using it for quite some time now, fortunately I've never had to use it from theft.

    One thing that bothers me is how Prey writes so many logs that can be seen in the Console application. Does anybody know how to prevent Prey from writing those logs that are visible in the Console? If somebody did ever steal my machine, I think it would be nice that those entries aren't visible in the Console.

    It turns out that I was running a year old version of Prey Project, the new release is not supposed to write logs that are visible in Console.
