You’ve spent a lot of money for that expensive android device, Galaxy s4 or HTC One. So why not take the extra 10 or more minutes to setup free anti-theft apps to help you recover your phone or device, in case you lose it? Here is a list of the top apps I would recommend. I personally use Prey for all my devices as Prey also supports laptops and desktops too.
Below is my screenshot for the Prey Project which I use to track my Galaxy S4 phone, it shows it as being an android 4.2.2 tablet but it’s actually my phone. I highly recommend Prey as it has a feature that prevents anyone from uninstalling it from your phone, and it also has a camouflage feature which makes it look like a game with a password login screen when someone opens it.
Cerberus is a complete anti-theft application, the best protection you can get to recover your misplaced, lost or stolen Android device.
Prey is the most complete anti-theft application! It lets you track and locate your lost or stolen phone, tablet and laptop. Locate and recover your device with geolocation and many more features. Prey is completely FREE and you can protect up to 3 devices with one single account.
