All-in-one security app protects what's important to you on your Android phone

All-in-one security app protects what's important to you on your Android phone
A new security app found in the Google Play Store could be the difference between allowing your lost handset to be a treasure trove of personal info for a thief, or making your phone more secure than Fort Knox. Developed by XDA Developer member TheftSpy, the app is called TheftSpy for Android and is currently free. Using your PC as a way to access a lost or stolen Android phone, the app works on those sportin' a phone running on Android 2.3 or higher.

The missing device can be traced using the GPS signal and you have control over the camera so that you can snap pictures or take video. You can still read your SMS messages and use Whatsapp. You can reset or re-boot your device and if you're at your wits end, you can wipe all internal memory and that of any SD card in use.

Hey, no one likes to lose their smartphone and no one likes to have personal information stolen. But if it does happen to your Android handset, TheftSpy not only could help you find it, but it also could make things a lot easier during a very stressful time. Check out the video below and for more, info, head to the sourcelink.

Much closer to useless than great. Who loses a phone? If you are so absent minded that the POSSIBILITY of losing your phone exsists...then DON'T HAVE SENSITIVE INFO STORED ON IT. sigh.

Losing the phone isn't the problem. It's lack of real security on android in some instances that's the problem.

I would agree that most people don't lose their phone, BUUUUT, a lot of phones are stolen on a daily basis. This is a very useful app. Even if your phone doesn't get stolen or lost. If you check out the feature set, it offers some great features that can be used even if you never have lost your phone. Plus, it's free! Most of the useful features are free. That's right. Free! You don't have to buy the premium version to use it. You don't get 1 or 2 features for free, you get several. Try it!

When I had an android I used the preinstalled Lookout suite, and was very satisfied. Also added a few of their other services as well. Kapersky, Trend Micro, and Avast apparently make good ones too. Don't use Norton/Symantec, as they're about as malicious as malware.
