Laptop tracking

I've bought my granddaughter a rather expensive laptop for school, she is very careful but I'm aware that laptop theft is rampant. I would like to install a background application that would help to locate the laptop if it was stolen.

A google search has identified a multitude of such applications, could anyone advise of a good one that they have used and can recommend, please.

The laptop I purchased is a Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series-5480.

For business, we've used Prey (https://preyproject.com/). Works as advertised. Not sure about price, though.

Thanks so much, it looks like just what is needed. There is a free basic option that I think would be sufficient for a school laptop.
