Cerberus anti theft

Cerberus anti theft


Cerberus is a complete anti-theft application, the best protection you can get to recover your misplaced, lost or stolen Android device. This is a free trial for one week, then you can buy a lifetime license for a small price (4.99€) from within the application: no monthly or yearly fees, just a one-time payment. License is associated to your Cerberus account, if you have multiple devices you can use all of them (up to 3) with the same account.

It has three ways to protect your device:
- Remote control through the website www.cerberusapp.com
- Remote control via text messages
- SIM Checker (for devices that have a SIM card): you will automatically receive alerts if someone uses your phone with an unauthorized SIM card

Remote control allows you to perform many operations on your device, like:
- Locate and track it
- Start a loud alarm, even if the device is set to silent mode
- Wipe the internal memory and the SD card
- Hide Cerberus from the app drawer
- Lock the device with a code
- Record audio from the microphone
- Get a list of last calls sent and received
- Get information about network and operator the device is connected to
- And much more!

Cerberus automatically enables GPS if it is off when you try to localize your device (only on Android < 2.3.3) and you can protect it from unauthorized uninstalling - more info in the app configuration.
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. Texts received and sent for Cerberus remote control will not start any notification and will not appear in the Messages application.
Cerberus does not drain the battery because there is no background service running: it will activate only if there is a remote control request and will stop afterwards.

More features for rooted devices: complete uninstall protection (a thief will be able to delete Cerberus only by flashing another ROM), GPS auto-enabling even on Android > 2.3.3. More info on the website in the Help section.

User reviews of Cerberus anti theft
Just downloaded and tried this app which is free (forever) for the next few days (https://plus.google.com/u/0/111441929456451548230/posts/ew1YNShMzyw). It is better than anything else I've tried so far so I suggest you grab it and register for the free licence. The web site is disappointing in that it doesn't remember ANYTHING, you need to save copy/paste anything you receive when you are panicing about losing your phone, stress you don't need, should at least send everything via email.

Cerberus is the best application in terms of security for your device, it has a massive range of remote features & is a set one-time fee!

Weer een MUST-HAVE. Mocht je ooit je telefoon kwijt raken, dan kan je hem hiermee blokkeren, terugvinden of wipen.

Set-and-Forget Peace of Mind, Best of It's Kind I have the paid version installed on a Galaxy S3 and a Galaxy Note 4. Great features and control over devices from the management console on the web (or through the Client Cerberus app, which I also use). Won't ever own a device without it! Thanks!

Restrictive and Might be a Waste of Money (read review) Terms and conditions do state it's not to be used for monitoring, and they sure do enforce it - unfortunately, their automatic flagging system is faulty and unjustly blocked the account. I just installed the app this morning and have been testing its capabilities out for just over an hour to see how glitchy it is, how well it transmits data you need, etc. After about 10 audio recordings it blocked all features and says "The account will not be unblocked even if you buy the license." The app, in the hour and a half of total usage, seemed to work fine, but the audio recordings weren't of decent quality and cut out a lot (even when using the phone on a wifi connection). Keep in mind, I was recording myself constantly, just to see if it worked, so that I would feel comfortable enough using this app for anti-theft purposes. But their system, I guess, flagged the account as if I was monitoring. **update** And their response is canned - can't use it as monitor - but they failed to acknowledge that I was not and the phone was my own. #epicfail
