    For anti-theft and loss I recommend the free app 'AndroidLost', which you can remotely install, with another web-connected device, on your stolen/lost device AFTER you lost it or had it stolen! Once installed you can do all sorts of things like locating the device or wiping it remotely, etc. etc., via AndroidLost.com.

    Of course you need to do that as soon as possible after your device was lost or stolen! Minutes count!

    Anti-Theft worked. I use Google's own anti theft though.

    Another vote for AndroidLost. UI sucks, and the website UI sucks, but it works. Install the app, register, and test it. Lose your phone where you know where it is, or get someone else to 'steal' it, and test it.

    Cerberus has much of the same functionality, as does Andriod Device Manager.

    Cerberus requires either root or payment. Both IIRC.

    I am getting ready to go for some security apps on my andriod devices. One of them was stolen not to long ago, and I would have paid $500 to track that sucker and found out who stole it..

    With that said, how is Cerberus, from what I hear it does a lot of things. and has a issue on uninstalling.
