Avast Anti-Theft for Android: Controlling a lost or stolen mobile device remotely
How can I find a lost or stolen mobile device with Avast Anti-Theft installed
If your lost mobile device has Avast Anti-Theft installed on it, you can control it remotely using the following resources:
- Avast Account is an account created from the my.avast.com website. To use this method, your Anti-Theft app must be connected with an Avast Account. Your lost device must be running and connected to the internet.
SMS Remote Control is a built-in feature of Anti-Theft. To use this method, the Anti-Theft app needs to be installed on two mobile devices, a target device and a device to be used for remote control.
SMS commands are commands that you can send from any mobile device. If you use this method, the possible thief can see that you are trying to control your phone remotely as the message is visible in the folder with incoming messages.
