Apps to protect your phone from thieves

There's no such feeling of helplessness as losing your valuable phone. All the money you spent, the important data you had on it, everything just so very important. Therefore, Today I have decided to suggest you three apps that will ensure that you never lose your phone. Read on

1) GadgetTrak: GadgetTrak is available for both Android and iOS users. The app offers complete protection by providing features such as location detection, remote alarm activation and file protection. CTIA E-Tech Award Winner for Best Productivity, Utility & Public Safety Apps,
Winner of Mobile Star Awards "Best Consumer Security Application", and dozens other awards, its surely one of the best apps for mobile security.

2) Prey: Prey is yet another app with a brilliant record of Lost&stolen Device recovery. Many users testimonials state that once they received the first signals from the app after their devices were stolen, Police was able to track the phone within hours. Prey operates with geo-location tracking and remote camera activation, and it protects your data while the device is away. You can also upgrade to pro version to secure more than one device, for example, the devices of your family members.

3) iHound: The app originally developed for iOS devices is now also available for the Android platform. This app uses geo-location to search for a lost or stolen device and accurately track down its whereabouts. Android users also get some cool extra features such as remotely locking and deleting the data on your phone to prevent its misuse and remotely messaging with your phone, so you can communicate with whomever has it.
