How to locate and recover a stolen or lost Android mobile phone - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial you'll learn how you can locate and recover your Android smartphone when you lose or it is stolen. For a smartphone usually has a wireless antenna and a GPS module, application developers and security companies have thought to use these to help the customer to find your smartphone if it is stolen or lost. The application I'll talk about today, exactly what does!
Besides this function that I consider most important and useful application allows us to make Lookout backup photos, Contacts and calls. Functions that can be easily accomplished and much better, with other dedicated applications.
Lookout app allows us limited access for 14 days 3 functions such as secure web browsing (Safe Browsing), a notifier for all applications that install and ask us permission to transmit or access personal data (Privacy Advisor ) backup for calls made, received (Call Backup). After expiry of 14 days, you have to buy the application to continue to use these functions 3. Admirable thing that will not find many Android applications which offer a trial (complete user application limited time) most are either free or with money without trial.
So we can locate on the map Lookout smartphone if it has an internet connection and GPS active control application provides us with an account and a web interface that can be accessed from any device using a browser, we can give the command smartphone, wherever we are, to produce a sound loud alarm to locate the device easier (both new to the smartphone and want to send the command to start the alarm, you have to have an active connection Internet)
If we buy premium application we can give the command lost or stolen smartphone to erase all content data, or you can block that data can not be accessed.
That said, I highly recommend this app if only for the option to send the order to give them a loud alarm extremely useful when we find the house gadget. I can only invite you to watch the video tutorial to see exactly how we locate and recover our smartphone when it is lost or stolen.

  2. Very good tutorial but you see that the phone number you wanted to hide it with that blur effect was still seen :))) to me ……….

  3. hello can you tell me a version for nokia (5230) Symbian for touchscreen please: D

  4. interesting tutorial, congratulations, but there are other programs you can activate the car alarm and locating a sms (not everyone has internet enabled on your phone. unlimited).
    Congratulations again for the tutorial.

      Congratulations again for the tutorial.

      You don't have to leave your mobile net activated. You leave the wireless activated… now, everyone has a wireless at home, not to mention free hot spots without authentication through many locations. the one who steals it can go around these hot spots at any time or why not, he can "park" for hours in a mall or mac donalds with free wifi. If that happens, you can get your hands on him right away. Mobile net is not so expensive! With 8 euros per month (it seems a little) you have 500MB of Orange prepaid traffic. If you leave the mobile net (3G) activated and do nothing, it has no traffic to consume for a poor synchronization of Gmail mails once the time it has to bring (if there is new mail on the server) a notification and some text that will never exceed 1 MB but only a few KB

      • I was robbed of a Samsung Galaxy S Advance and I hadn't activated anything wireless or Gps and I want to know if I took the documents to the police with the IMEI of the phone, the police can find it… I'm waiting for an answer.

  5. I had seen a similar article on LifeHacker about Prey application. Good job!

  6. The application is ok… but the thief when he steals the phone removes the card and needs a permanent internet connection

  7. Hello Ady
    I have a question with this software, how do you locate it? I guess GPS?
    As if it means that GPS is reduced battery autonomy?

      As if it means that GPS is reduced battery autonomy?

      GPS does not eat much, it is only used when applications require location, otherwise the GPS module is nani.
      If the thief wants to sell your client must show that it works.
      Its location is in many ways, the GPS is the most accurate, the second way is through the mobile phone network (error of several hundred meters, the third method of localization is through wireless networks (routers).

    Lookout is a very successful, but a shame that the battery telefonulului (Lg P500) does not take more than 2 days even if you do not hang out with him, do not know why but it downloads very fast, stick it to the charger and after an hour you battery dies and taps.
    If you leave the battery activated GSP goes as you say above.
    I think I can count on my fingers the people who leave their GPS enabled!

    • Robert:
      GPS enabled function has not always active (if selected in the program) only when ordering from the website you search. otherwise it remains in hibernation. and even if the battery ends still need to upload it? that not only will use off :P .

      No smartphone does not take more than two zle unless it is extended battery, that is, if you want performance, slim phone, you must pay.

  12. Cristi-admin: Mr. Adrian has remedied the problem, thanks for information.

    still sees me

  13. I can someone kindly help me with the above problems?

  14. What special wallpaper?

  15. is there any possibility that the phone can be locked when another foreign card is inserted? or decenu to use the respective card to connect to the internet without knowing the respective "thief" eating the money on the card.

  16. Blocking stolen (or borrowed) phones is practiced in most Western countries, including our country, but many people do not know. The operators have a common database, in which they save information about the stolen devices, depending on the complaints that come from customers. Each phone is identified by its IMEI code, so based on this code, stolen phones no longer receive network access. The method is designed to discourage mobile theft, as they will not be able to be used in the original network or in another network alta. Honestly, I have not known anyone who has recovered their stolen phone… I think I have I did something wrong!

  17. CERT is that the operators do not have a direct financial interest in setting up such a multiannual system, the gain would be more image, and customers will be many and more satisfied, and in these conditions it is not expected that the project will be released too fast… fast meaning NEVER!

    Good application, .. but we still have to work on it. Unfortunately, "Enable Better Protection" is easily deactivated once it reaches the menu, and no longer offers any protection. I consider that it was necessary, at least, to ask for a password in order to deactivate this function. activated the phone locks and wipes completely if you change the SIM, tested thing.

  23. 1 I disabled lookout from the computer in the settings browser where it says' disable lookout…. and now it tells me 'This device is not currently protected. Download the Lookout mobile app and sign in to re-enable protection 'even though the program is still installed on your phone. how can i fix the problem if you can help me.

      Do not run the tutorial and you'll find out. I clearly said in the tutorial like checking function X can not be uninstalled. If you want to learn to use a software. Or look at the tutorial and not ask questions already answered in the tutorial. Or do not look, or if you know that you run, do not know to what post comments? We must say the 7 or something already mentioned just because you're comfortable and you're not able to watch a tutorial head-tail?

      • Let me please you disagree I have a samsung galaxy s and break me 3 gps battery charger you are forced to fold or 2 3 times a day. I desire min with charger wherever I go then? eventually I saw with my own eyes what is GPS enabled mobile phone

I noticed he had a little tune up in this message: Do not run the tutorial and you'll find out. I clearly said in the tutorial like checking function X can not be uninstalled.

  24. Sall. Look, I thought how do I find my goal if I lose it? If the goal is off, does the program still have an effect?

  25. I tried to add a new device but, although I did all the steps and the second, Lookout continues to see only the first device. I am interested to see more sites with the same account device (otherwise there's no point function Add New Device).
    Thanks for the support.

      You have a chance if you had a google account set up on your phone.
      If you enter a Google account on your phone, you can install from market PlanB, desktop login to the Android Market with your phone account and install PlanB, this application will send a few emails over the phone.

  33. I called so for only a talking parrot that could leave me in front of a galaxy s2 between flowers near the car after an hour to realize that someone found it and threw the card I tried plan B for android but I do not think will solve anything. I have a chance to locate what to do or say goodbye to it completely it has happened now a day and a half to 2. thank you waiting your answers!

    • When the thief will connect your phone to the Internet, it will send the coordinates by any, that the canditia Planb remain installed.
      You should know that new generation Samsung phones have a really cool way location, it works independently of the SIM card and email address. You can even change the module settings without password, even you can not reset. But you know how it is, only after you're frugal with soup and blow-n yogurt.

        my boy lost his phone in the woods in the mountains a few days ago, a state-of-the-art samsung, I think the phone has not been found yet by anyone, but it ran out of battery, would it really be likely to be found? , surely the phone is no longer good… .or do they have any protection somehow?

  34. I gave it installation I think on my gmail server and I gave it about 5-6 times. I installed all kinds of applications from android. but one seemed super cool but asked me to pay online but unfortunately I do not have an online payment card was not much only 6,58 RON. At the moment, I have the impression that if we buy the program, that program would be located even if it was not connected to the net, as the people from Sri and Orange can do, it doesn't hurt that you are a sucker and you only pay taxes and subscriptions and take their money finally I'm still waiting on the phone left and right without knowledge in this country you're dead even though you're alive, but I kind of thought about it over time… if you have any ideas or suggestions I accept :) )) THX

    PS
    Not our fault if you do not understand!
    Comprehension that is hectic because you lost your phone, still trying to calm down and pay attention to the tutorials. Also try to be clear when you express yourself in writing, this is not the mess or facebk
