Scared of losing your Android device? That is what anti-theft apps are for. One such anti-theft app that has recently gained some press and positive reviews is Cerberus anti theft. Cerberus is an anti-theft app that helps people recover their Android devices, when lost or stolen; it does this by – obviously – geo-locating devices via GPS but also by allowing Cerberus users to perform remote actions such as remote wipe, remote lock, sound an alarm, send notifications when the SIM card has been changed, record audio from microphone, etc.:
Cerberus 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!

The following video demos Cerberus:
Pretty cool, no? I especially like the ability to remotely wipe internal memory and SD card.
That said, because of the nature of what it does, Cerberus needs an extreme amount of app privileges to operate on your Android device — permissions ranging from making phone calls, sending texts, internet access, contact data, etc. Personally speaking I don’t feel comfortable giving this many privileges to an app unless I know and trust the company behind the app. The company behind Cerberus is LSDroid, a company I don’t know and as such can’t blindly trust. Now I am not saying Cerberus is malicious or LSDroid is a malicious developer. As I said before, LSDroid has received some positive reviews recently and presumably if it were malicious it would be caught by now due to all the press it is getting. What I am saying is I have not personally downloaded and tried Cerberus so I can’t vouch for its quality – or lack thereof, if that is the case. If you decide to give Cerberus a try, feel free to share with the rest of us your experience with the app in the comments  below.
Cerberus is usually a paid app. You download it and use its 7 day free trial after which you must pay a one-time fee of €2.99 (about $4 USD) for a lifetime license. However, to celebrate their 100,000th user, for a limited time (the promotion ends 23:59:59 GMT, February 29 2012) the developer is giving everyone lifetime licenses of Cerberus anti theft completely free!
