None of us want to believe that our phones might get stolen, but the truth is that it could happen to anybody — no matter how careful you are. So just to be safe, it’s always a good idea to have some sort of anti-theft app on your device.Google offers a very simple, built-in option called Android Device Manager that can locate your device if it goes missing, but today we’re taking a look at the best third-party options for protecting your device.
If you’re willing to pay for Premium, you get a lot more features. The Safe Browsing feature alerts you to websites that are trying to steal your information, Privacy Adviser limits permissions for certain apps (though Android 6.0 Marshmallow and newer has this built in), you can get Theft Alerts when suspicious activity occurs on your device, you can remote Lock and Wipe your device, you can backup your photos and call logs, and you can get Breach Reports for when a service you use is hacked.
The Premium cost is either $3 for a month or $30 for a year. If you don’t plan on getting the Premium version, Lookout’s free version doesn’t offer a whole lot, even though the app is sleek and Lookout is a reputable company that’s been doing this for a while.
With Cerberus, you get a lot more features — but that can also make it kind of complex for some folks. While Cerberus can send commands to your device over the internet (ring, lock, and wipe), it can also send commands using SMS if your phone is unable to connect to the internet.Plus, it contains a multitude of other features, like the ability to alert you if the SIM card is changed, the ability to take photos or video when someone else tries to access your phone, and the ability to create your own AutoTask in the form of “if this happens, do this” (like a security-oriented Tasker or IFTTT). That AutoTask feature has a ton of possibilities, like “if the battery is about to die, send out your location”, or “if the wrong unlock code is entered, set off an alarm”. If you dig into it, Cerberus can really do anything. You only get a week for free, after which you have to buy a license — but that’s actually pretty cheap. A Cerberus license for one year for one device is only 5 euros (roughly $5). For the security pros, try out this app.
