[App] Cerberus anti theft
It’s not just a find my phone app or a phone tracker, Cerberus has many unique features that make it the perfect app to locate your phone or tablet, identify the thief and get back your device.
Install Cerberus and try it for free for one week, then you can buy a license for your account from within the app or from the web dashboard.
It has three ways to protect your device. These are the “3 heads” of Cerberus:
– Remote control through the website https://www.cerberusapp.com
– Remote control via SMS (text messages) from another phone
– Automatic alerts
This app uses the Device Administrator permission.
Remote control allows you to perform many operations on your lost or stolen device, like:
Locate and track it
Lock the device with a code
Start a loud alarm, even if the device is set to silent mode
Display a message that stays on the screen, and also make your device speak the message
Take pictures, screenshots and even record videos, to identify the thief
Get the location history, to see where the device has been in the past
Wipe the internal memory and the SD card, to protect your personal data
Hide Cerberus from the app drawer, so the app will be stealthy and a thief will not see the icon
Record audio from the microphone
Get a list of last calls sent and received
Get information about cell phone network and WiFi network the device is connected to, and nearby WiFi networks
Start a remote shell (SSH-like), to execute commands as if the device were connected to your computer with a USB cable
And much more!
Cerberus can automatically perform actions when some conditions are met. For instance, it will send email/SMS alerts if the SIM card is changed (see the “SIM checker” section of the settings) and it will email you a photo of the thief when a wrong unlock code is entered (section “Automatic photo capture”).
You can also set your own rules, see the “AutoTask” section! From there you can set geofencing (alerts when the phone exits or enters an area) and a lot of more automatic actions and alerts.
From within the app configuration, you can enable some options to make difficult for the thief to disable or uninstall Cerberus. Make sure to enable the “Device Administration” functionality and the “Protect device admin” option. Also you can block the Power Menu to prevent the thief from shutting down the device, and block access to the status bar in the lock screen, so nobody would be able to change the quick settings in Lollipop (Android 5.0) and later versions.
If you have rooted your device you can install Cerberus as a system application and get many additional features, including complete uninstall protection (Cerberus will survive a factory reset) and GPS auto-enabling when you start tracking the device. See the Help page on our website for more information on that.
The app works even if the device does not have an internet connection thanks to remote control by sms messages. Also, the SIM Checker feature allows you to know the new number to send texts to, if the SIM card is changed.
If you have an Android Wear smartwatch, make sure to check the “Wearable device” section of the app settings: you will find many useful and cool features.
Please read the Help page on our website (https://www.cerberusapp.com/help.php), it has the answers to the most frequently asked questions. If you have any questions not covered there, feature requests or experience any issues, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help!
Cerberus anti theft user reviews :
perfect app for anti theft Very good app. The developer support is also great, I’d problem in registering and they sorted out with prompt response. The app dashboard has lot of features for tracking your devices.
Finally found the right app!!!…. /* I’ve been wanting an app that does all this the proper way for a long long time and have finally found it….. The idea of giving a week of trial is great. 3 euros is quite cheap considering the features… Definitely worth my money….. Thanks LSDroid */
Amazing so far I love all of the features that it includes, and have tested some out. I just got my new smart phone, so I was planning on getting this app anyways, getting it for free was just the icing on the cake. Thank you Cerberus team!
