Find your stolen android smart phone with these useful apps
Losing a phone can be pretty stressful, especially if you spend a little fortune on it. But, stay calm, today’s technology is doing awesome things in order to help people with this problem. Now you can immediately install any of these applications that will help you find your phone or at least locate it.
1 Where’s My Droid
This application will allow you to easily locate your phone. Once you realize your phone is not in your pocket or your purse, you can use another phone to send a text code to it to make it ring in the hands of the thief (even if the phone has the vibration turned on) or to get back text with GPS coordinates of the phone. If you use the Pro-version of Where’s My Droid, which is not free, you can take pictures with your lost or stolen Android smart phone in order to figure out where he is. This app as it is mentioned above, isn’t necessary to be installed on your phone, but it is no harm to have it.
2 Plan B
Plan B is a very simple application that can help you even if you have not installed it before you have lost your phone. You can just install it on any phone and use that device to send a text “Locate” to your number. Once the message is sent, it will start with GPS tracking in order to locate the missing smart phone. Then it will send information to your gmail account where your phone is, so it will be easy to find.
3 Lost Android
This application will help you send SMS from literally any phone, and once your phone gets the message it will start to ring and will illuminate (the thief would get scared for sure). Also you can turn on or off GPS monitoring, take pictures with it, delete your photos, videos and messages from the memory card and you can even see which numbers appeared after the thief stole your phone. It sounds amazing, but the application has a system that converts text into speech that everyone can hear it while handling the phone thief. You will be notified by email if the SIM card is changed. If you forget to install before you lose the phone, you can do it later without the thief noticing it.
4 SeekDroid: Find My Phone
This is an application which, like the previous ones, allows GPS tracking, deleting data, ringing and so on. The main difference is that it works when the SIM card is removed (which is great). You can pay more and get the Pro-version. This way you will have the opportunity to get a map to the line of movement of your smart phone and in the direction that the phone is ‘moving’ at the moment.
If you install this application, you will be able to see what photos were taken with your stolen smart phone. You can track your phone on the internet, you can get to see what changes were made with your SIM card and you can follow your phone through GPS.
6 Prey Anti-Theft
Prey Anti-Theft is the only app on this list that must be installed before you actually lose your phone. People may call you paranoid, but it will do no harm if you actually have it. Activate via SMS with text “GO PREY” and go on their website for more information. Once the application is active, you should mark your phone as missing (more details on the website). Afterwards, you will start getting notifications for the location of your phone. The thief cannot delete the application, because it is possible only with a password.
