¦ Locate & Track your ‘lost’ phone on a map through our web-based mobile phone tracking feature (uses GPS tracker and other triangulation methods).
¦ Control your cell phone remotely via a web-based interface or SMS if the phone is stolen (to do this, go to: http://my.avast.com ).
¦ Remotely lock and/or wipe the phone memory, to keep your data safe.
¦ Remotely take photos or listen to audio of the phone’s surroundings.
¦ Set up a SIM-card-change notification to another device.
¦ Stealth Mode automatically hides the app on your phone whenever Anti-Theft is activated, so that a thief is not even aware of its presence.... More Info »
