2. Where’s My Droid



This is an interesting app which comes with features like Ring Setup, GPS Setup, Security settings, Commander and Advanced Menu. Each of these options gives a special security feature to the device, for example in case you misplaced or lost your phone the Ring Setup makes the phone ring even if it is in silent mode. With the use of GPS Setup you can track your lost phone.



All that you need to do when you device is missing is send an SMS with the ‘attention words’ (you have to setup the ‘attention words’ prior) from another phone.



3. Webroot Security and Antivirus



Webroot Security & Antivirus application is a one-stop-solution for all the security concerns a user can have about their Android running device. The app brings lots of security features like scanning for viruses, blocking unwanted calls and messages, locating the stolen or lost phone, remotely locking the device and it also blocks unsafe websites.



In Google Plat akka Android Market the app is available in both free and paid version. For the paid Pro version you have to shed Rs.1108. The Pro version has many useful additional features like remotely wiping data from the lost or stolen device, keeping a check on prying app, battery status and power usage monitoring and a unique feature which locks the device automatically if the SIM card of the phone is removed.

2: Webroot Security and Antivirus is a good app, but one major brawback is it gets rooted to the Android operating system running on your phone and makes the device slow!
