Portability and high cost makes cell phones and tablets an easy and prized target for thieves.

AVG Antivirus Pro offer various features for protection of sensitive data in case of theft, to find-your-phone via maps etc.
AVG Antivirus Pro:How to Know Who is Peeking into Your Phone
AVG Antivirus Pro features a variety of security options like the anti theft and phone location.
The AVG Antivirus uses its remote management console or text messages (SMS) to locate your phone. This can be through google maps or setting a lock screen message to help the locator find you. Another important feature is the ability to make your phone ring even if it is in silent mode.
The Camera Trap is also another creative feature that allows the user of the application to capture the image of the person using the phone. In case a wrong password is entered three or more than three times consecutively, the phone automatically takes a photo using the front camera to capture the face of the user or potential thief. This is done discreetly and the photo is automatically sent to you on the email address that is registered with the Anti theft service allowing the user to see who exactly is trying to break into your device.
In addition to the Camera Trap, AVG Antivirus Pro also has a SIM lock feature. This feature automatically locks your device in the event that the SIM card is replaced rendering the device unfit for use.
The two features along with a powerful locating tool represent the latest in anti theft and security technology providing AVG users with a sound protection against theft and/or loss.
However, it should be noted that the Camera Trap and SIM lock feature is only available in the AVG Pro edition which is not free. Free users can avail these features for a 14 day trail period after which you can buy the app on the google play store for a price 1220Rs.
