Published

Kindly share this post:

If you have ever lost possession of your phone (maybe mislay it or had it stolen) or any gadgets, you would agree that it is one of the saddest things that can ever happen to one anyone in the world — considering how super pricey smartphones and other gadgets have become and how addictive and attached individuals have become with their smartphones.

Hello!! Have you heard about the deadly virus called Coronavirus? No? See What It Is & How To Prevent It Here. Also Stay Connected & Get Latest Updates On Coronavirus Here. Please be safe! We LOVE You.



Few of the most premium smartphones in the world right now are above the $1000 USD price mark (case in point: iPhone X). As every day passes, many more smartphones are getting very close to the very close (eg. the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus flagship which cost about $800) to the $1000 USD line and will eventually cross it one day. Soon, maybe.

To think smartphones have evolved from just being electronic toys meant for communication to impactful investments whose purposes have been inculcated into important aspects of our everyday living, we feel it is worthy to bring to your know these 5 applications that can help you easily (and successfully) track your Android smartphone in the car of theft or mislay.

It doesn’t matter if your phone was stolen, o your misplaced it, or you would love to track the location of a partner or relative, these apps will come in handy in whatever situation where an Android smartphone is required to be tracked.

6 Best Android AntiTheft App

1. TheOneSpy

As the name says it all, it is the number one, most popular secret surveillance and tracking application. Particularly designed and developed to track, and monitor Android devices such as cell phones and tablets. It is third party software, so it is not available on Google Android Play Store, but you can find its dashboard app on all popular online application stores i.e. Google Play and AppStore. TheOneSpy works with both rooted and non-rooted android devices and packed with 150 plus monitoring tracking features.

Most popular features of TheOneSpy include:

  • Surround listing and recording.
  • Mic and Camera bugging
  • GPS Location & Geo-Fencing
  • Browsing, Bookmarks & Remote Blocking/Un-blocking
  • Phone Calls Recording
  • Screen Recording
  • Keylogging
  • Instant Messenger (IM’s) Logging
  • TikTok, Bigo Live, Instagram, Imo, Line, Kik, etc.
  • Voice Messages Recording & Monitoring
  • Password chaser
  • Device information
  • Media Files such as Photos & Videos
  • Emails, and Data Back-up.

TheOneSpy is the most economical and advanced solution for your android spying needs. $18 for a monthly subscription or you can choose plans according to your requirements.

2. Where’s My Droid

This app is one of the oldest and well-known tracking applications for Android smartphones. In fact, the developers of the app (Alienman Technologies LLC) labeled the app as the “first find your phone app on the Android market”. With over 10 million downloads and a 4.5/5 rating on the Google Play Store, Where’s My Droid is one of the best phone tracking apps to have on your phone to easily locate a stolen/lost phone.

Some other features of the app are:

  • Geofencing
  • AutoTheft Detection
  • Passive Location Updates
  • Motion Alarm
  • Location History
  • Remotely lock device
  • Remotely wipe SD card
  • Remotely wipe phone data
  • Prevent app from being uninstalled
  • Hide the app icon
  • Use a landline to activate the app
  • Customizable ringtone when lost

3. mSPY

mSPY is another super effective mobile tracking solution (read: application) to have on your Android smartphone. Unlike Where’s My Droid, mSPY is not available on the Google Play, rather, in mSPY’s official website. Again, there is no free version of the app as you can only download the app to your phone after purchasing a package (which starts at about $8 per month).

Some features of mSPY include:

  • Keylogging tracker
  • Geofencing
  • App activity tracker
  • Location tracking

4. Prey Anti Theft

Prey Anti Theft is a Chile-born Anti-theft app that its developers boast as not just a find my phone app alternative, but as the most thorough recovery tool to find your lost, misplaced or stolen android phones. Prey Anti Theft is trusted used by many and it has garnered over a million download on Google Play Store.

The Prey Anti Theft app has a free and premium version. Features of the free version include; control zones, GPS geolocation, security alarm, security Lock, remote capture with front and back camera, security camouflage, and security message alert.

For some extra dollars, you can go premium and enjoy some added features like remote data wipe and file retrieval.

5. AVG Anti-theft

The AVG Anti-theft is a part of the service the AVG Antivirus app renders. The app is a wildly recognized antivirus app with over 100 million downloads on the Google Play Store. Through the Anti-theft features of the AVG app, you can:

  • Locate your lost phone via Google Maps
  • Lock your phone and set a lock screen message to help the locator find you.
  • Make your phone shout (ring) even if it is on silent mode
  • Remotely wipe your phone and SD card content
  • Discreetly emails yourself photos of anyone who enters 3 wrong passwords when trying to unlock your phone using the app’s “camera trap” feature

The AVG Antivirus app and Anti-theft service is free but there is a pro version that requires payment to enjoy added benefits.

6. Cerberus Anti-theft

Cerberus Anti-theft remains one of the best Anti-theft app to have on your Android smartphone. In fact, this list would be best described as incomplete without Cerberus. Cerberus makes it impossible for you not to get back your lost or stolen smartphone.

The app and Anti-theft service come with special and advanced device tracking features with my favorite being the “uninstall protection” which makes it impossible for an intruder or thief be able to delete the app from your phone. Cerberus will even survive a factory reset — that’s how badass it is. The app is free and available on Google Play Store.

With one (or more) the above applications installed on your Android device, recovering a lost or stolen phone will become easier than it has almost never been.
