Remote Listening

Remotely have the phone call you elsewhere, with screen blacked out, so that thieves cannot see the call status and you can listen to the phone's surroundings.

App Disguier

You can change avast! Anti-Theft to a custom name that disguises the app (e.g. call it "Pinocchio game") so that would-be thieves don’t see it.

Siren

Activate a loud, customizable siren (e.g. your own siren sound or one from a file), which reverts to maximum volume if thieves try to silence it.

Stealth Mode

Once enabled, the app icon is hidden in the app tray, making it 'invisible' and thus difficult for thieves to detect.

Remote Locator

Remotely locate phone via GPS, WiFi, or mobile network – for maximum accuracy. Can locate either once or continuously.

SIM-Card-Change Notification

If stolen, and a different (unauthorized) SIM card is inserted, the phone can lock, activate siren, and send you a notification (to another device) of the phone's new number and geo-location.

Trusted SIM Cards List

Establish a 'white list' of approved SIM cards that can be used in the phone without triggering a theft alert, or easily set only the primary one in the phone as ‘trusted’.

Battery Save

Anti-Theft only runs when it needs to perform tasks, preserving battery life and making it difficult for thieves to shut down.

Setup Wizard for Rooted

A setup wizard guides you through the installation process on rooted phones by either writing directly or by generating an update file. No command-line knowledge is necessary.

Remote Memory Wipe

Remotely trigger a full, permanent wipe of all phone data (e.g. contacts, call log, SMS/MMS, browser history, apps, email accounts), including reliable, physical wipe of memory cards (limited functionality on older versions).

Remote "Lost" Notification

Remotely send a "Lost" command to trigger same actions as SIM card change (e.g. phone lock, siren, or USB lock). "Found" command deactivates "Lost" command.

Remote History

Query the call log, contacts, and SMS messages remotely (with each forwarded as a separate SMS message, but able to be filtered).

Remote SMS Sending

Remotely trigger phone to send an SMS to another phone. That way, if you forget the phone somewhere, you can reply nonetheless to incoming calls or SMS messages.

Remote Restart

Reboot the phone by SMS command, which will lock the phone by asking for the SIM card's PIN code. (Works only on rooted phones.)

Low Battery Notification

Phone is able to send low battery notification to a secondary device.

Remote Settings Change

All of the Anti-Theft settings can be changed remotely.

Message the screen

Send a customized message to your phone display (e.g. with a reward for its return), whether it is locked or not.

Lock Phone Settings Access

Enables remote locking of the phone's App Manager and/or settings.

Remote Lock

To protect your data, your phone can be locked remotely and unlocked only with your password.
