Guardbot protects your device from theft or unwanted use. There are two ways it does this for you:
★ NORMAL MODE – using accelerometer
Activate this and set your device still on a surface – whether you’re in a bar with your friends or at home and you leave your device unattended, Guardbot will detect when someone picks it up and activate the alarm.
★ BAG MODE (anti pickpocket mode) – using light sensor
Activate this when you put the device in your pocket or inside your bag or purse. Guardbot will scan for changes in ambient light, and once it’s out of the bag it will activate the alarm.
You have time to set it still or inside your pocket, you can even turn off the screen (if you want to save battery).
For extra safety and fun, Guardbot has a unique built-in passcode system, it will require a 3-number touch pattern, you can set it by tapping on the screen using your fingers. Set up the passcode under the Settings button in the main screen, and don’t forget it!
Deactivate the alarm by tapping your passcode; if the wrong code is entered Guardbot will take a picture of the intruder and save it to your SD card/Guardbot folder.

Guardbot is an entertainment app, while it does a great job at activating the alarm and startling your friends or children, we cannot guarantee your device won’t get stolen. Best way to protect it from theft is to always keep it with you.
If your device doesn’t have a built in accelerometer or light sensor, the app won’t work. Please make sure you have the necessary hardware before installing it.
If you forgot your passcode use a task killer to shut down the alarm or restart your device.
While we thoroughly test the apps before publishing, we cannot guarantee it works on all Android devices, drop us a line at [email protected]
if it doesn’t work for you.
