A local technology-based company Softalogy Limited has launched an Android app called ThiefGuard to protect smartphones from thieves. The app will assist in identifying and regain lost devices. The app officially launched last Thursday, according to a press release issued by the company.
The developer of the app stated that the app will help track the mobile phone if stolen or lost. It will also help by notifying the location of the device and the picture of the perpetrator. At this time, the thief will not be able to turn off the mobile phone, connect the mobile phone to a computer. In case anyone attempts to change the SIM card, it will automatically inform the phone owner of the new SIM number on the mobile. No one will be able to access any data on the device without permission. The owner of the lost phone can track the device from a companies web platform.
The app is currently available for download from the app store.
