How To Track Your Missing Or Stolen Phone And Wipe It by BridleTech: 1:28am On Nov 09
After spending your hard-earned money to purchase an expensive smartphone, sometimes you might lose it as a result of theft or other occurrences. But it is important for you to be prepared if such happens. And that is where Cellphone Tracking Apps on Android OS comes in.

These cell phone tracking apps include free and paid apps with nice features. If you have one of these apps on your device, you can locate your device on the map after logging into your account on any computer. Another good thing about these Cellphone tracking apps is that they provide you with the last call detail, recorded voice, and photos of the thief from lost device’s camera to a remote location number or your account that will help to track device real-time.

Let us look at some of these Apps, but note, these mobile tracking apps might be paid or free. They definitely have premium features that offer remote data retrieval to help you retrieve call logs, text messages, and other personal data from the phone.

Android Device Manager
The first tracking App on my list is the Android Device Manager a security feature that helps you locate, and if needed, remotely lock or wipe your Android device if you happen to lose it or it gets stolen. Device Manager works to protect your Android device. All you need to do is connect the device with your Google account, and all these features will be available to you.

Avast Anti-Theft
Avast Anti-Theft app is a free cell phone tracker that helps you find and track your lost or stolen phone. Unlike the other tracking Apps mentioned above, Avast Anti-Theft app uses a map through its web-based mobile phone tracking feature, which uses GPS tracker and other triangulation methods.

The tracking process is very simple, you can control your cell phone remotely and manage your device via a web-based interface or SMS if the phone is stolen by visiting http://my.avast.com. It can also remotely take photos or listen to the audio of the phone’s surroundings, set up a SIM card change notification to another device. You also enjoy a Stealth Mode, which automatically hides the app on your phone whenever Anti-Theft is activated, so that a thief is not even aware of its presence.

Tracking it is almost impossible. That's how my friend lost his device then I had to contact someone to help him, though it was hard but he got it
