Cerberus may not be a name many have heard of. It is one of those apps that never comes up in searches. But I think, Cerberus seriously is *the* best anti-theft android app available in the Android Market. Features supported by this little app is simply mindblowing. Seriously folks, Cerberus is your best shot at finding your stolen/misplaced Android device.
Cerberus Anti-Theft App for Android
- Cerberus allows you to do a number of operations on your device remotely (via SMS or through their website). Some of them are listed below:
- Locate and track your device(s).
- Start a loud alarm (with your message), even if the device is set to silent mode.
- Wipe the internal memory and the SD card.
- Hide Cerberus from the app drawer.
- Record audio from the microphone.
- Lock the device with a code and unlock it remove the need for code.
- Get information about network and operator the device is connected to.
SIM Checker Feature is the Coolest of them all
- SIM Checker lets you automatically receive alerts (with phone numbers and location info) if someone uses your phone with an unauthorized SIM card.
- It gets better. Cerberus app can work even if the device does not have an active internet connection by using SMS messages. And you get the new number to send texts to, via SIM Checker. Isn't that awesome?
- Moreover, texts received and sent for Cerberus remote control will not start any notification and will not appear in the Messages application. Simply put, the person who stole the device won't even have a clue about what's happening.
- Cerberus is not a battery drainer either. There are no background services running. Cerberus will activate only if there is a remote control request and will stop afterwards.
