Have you ever felt lost after forgetting your smartphone at home? If so, then you already know that your Android is worth much more than the sum of its parts. This constant companion keeps some of your most important data at your fingertips. That’s why you need to be prepared in case your device ever leaves your side. After all, your smartphone may be replaceable, but what about its contacts, messages, photos and private accounts?
Cerberus is a powerful and fully-featured anti-theft application for Android devices, which allows you to remotely control your device if it has been misplaced, lost or stolen. There’s plenty of impressive functions like location tracking, an alarm, audio recording, a list of recent calls, and more. Better yet, Cerberus does not drain the battery because there is no background service running: it will activate only if there is a remote control request and will stop afterwards.
Cerberus Anti-Theft app automatically enables GPS if it is off when you try to localize your device (only on Android < 2.3.3) and you can protect it from unauthorized uninstalling – more info in the app configuration. The app works even if the device does not have an internet connection thanks to remote control by sms messages. Also, the SIM Checker feature allows you to know the new number to send texts to, if the SIM card is changed. Texts received and sent for Cerberus remote control will not start any notification and will not appear in the Messages application.
Cerberus Anti-Theft for Android has three ways to protect your device:
- Remote control through the website www.cerberusapp.com
- Remote control via text messages
- SIM Checker (for devices that have a SIM card): you will automatically receive alerts if someone uses your phone with an unauthorized SIM card
Remote control allows you to perform many operations on your device, like:
- Locate and track it
- Start a loud alarm, even if the device is set to silent mode
- Wipe the internal memory and the SD card
- Hide Cerberus from the app drawer
- Lock the device with a code
- Record audio from the microphone
- Get a list of last calls sent and received
- Get information about network and operator the device is connected to
- And much more!
