Maybe you don’t get reports, or some actions simply don’t run. These simple commands will help our support team identify what the problem is.


Open a Windows command prompt (“cmd”).
Assuming Prey is installed on the default folder, run this command:
C:\Prey\platform\windows\bin\bash.exe C:\Prey\prey.sh > C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Desktop\prey.log
And also this one:
C:\Prey\platform\windows\bin\bash.exe C:\Prey\prey.sh --check > C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAME\Desktop\prey-check.log(Check Mode)
That will save two files on your desktop, prey.log and prey-check.log. Please attach those when you contact our support team, or paste them on our forums.

Mac OS X and Linux

Open a terminal.
Run this command:
And also this one:
/usr/share/prey/prey.sh --check (Check Mode)
Please paste their output when you contact our support team or post on our forums.
