    Anti Theft will only work on low end thieves. Generally most thieves reset or wort will flash the device soon as stolen. In this case all anti theft software will fail to live to there promise. The last resort which is the IMEI could also be changed by one who knows to Google or Bing.

    Most of these apps cause considerable lag in normal and low end Android devices. Android is an operating system that needs a lot of resources and well there isn’t space to keep things that are not much promising.

    I use one called Beacon, its light weight, free and ad-free. Practically it has no negative effect on the phones performance and can be controlled using SMS. Alerts about SIM change, very clear loud siren and also gps/network location as a Google Maps link.
