Factory ResetNew

On Windows Devices

This feature remotely restores the device down to factory settings, removing all traces of use from the computer. It's irreversible, it formats your hard drive and installs the OS all over again. It could take up to an hour.

On Apple Devices

Apple requires a trust-certificate from Prey that confirms you are the administrator of said devices. By enabling this certificate and linking your Apple device to Prey, you are able to use Factory Reset and completely restore iOS and Mac devices.
