    This anti theft feature sounds so cool. I don’t understand why a person would want to steal a smartphone, let alone steal period. You want money? Get a job and budget accordingly. Why don’t thieves think about things such as the GPS in the phone that can track their every move? I also like how you can hide the app so the person can’t disable it. I saw it on the news about a guy who was a tourist and someone snatched his smartphone. It was recovered afterwards because the thief was being tracked down by the phone the whole time.

    It kind of bothers me that Android doesn’t have an advanced anti-theft system integrated in their stock ROMs. I have to admit that regarding this topic, they are a bit behind Apple’s iOS.
    Thanks for introducing me to this app. I’ve always wanted to secure my phone as much as I could, but never really bothere to check apps or functions that weren’t pre-installed.

    I always trusted the “My Device” feature of my Android phone, but I think it will be good to have more than one option. Do you think this works at the LG G3?

    We tried this with a couple of friends and it was really quite effective, sadly in a country where you get your phone stolen and police is not going to understand the use of these apps and whether it’s a prank/waste of time or not, it doesn’t do much. Brilliant implementations though, hopefully this kind of tech keeps on improving and makes stolen phones easier to recover.

    Brilliant app! I definitely should have downloaded this app before my galaxy note 3 was stolen. I bought the Note 4 and I’m going to try downloading this anti-theft app.

    I am a new Android user and I like this article very much. I travel in public transport most of the times and hence always run the risk of being a theft victim and even getting robbed. I will activate the anti-theft app and the geofencing immediately and will see how these two work. Screen password can also be used effectively which I have already done.
