Every Security Code In Prey

A game that doesn’t hold your hand, Prey really makes you work to get your loot and access to the next area. Within the game, dozens of passwords and keycodes are scattered around on terminals, notes, or hidden in various other unlikely places that players might never think to look in. Due to this, it’s common for players to miss out on quite a few locations.

The game’s access codes are divided into three categories: passwords, keycodes that never change, and keycodes that are randomized every time but can be found in set locations. This means that among keycodes, only a handful will remain the same from one playthrough to another, while the rest will be randomized but still discovered at set spots in the game.

Updated July 26, 2023, by Sean Murray: Don’t let your progress faulter just because of some silly codes. We’ve refreshed this guide with improved formatting to make it easier to find the security booth codes in Prey.

If an entry does not include a code, that means it is randomly generated.
