Anti-Theft Application for Lost or Misplaced Android Phones

Authors(3) :-Shweta Patil, Karishma Khodade, Sayali Deore

The purpose behind developing this project is to provide the user to track their lost or misplace device. A simple command from friends mobile will make the users phone ring even it is in silent mode if the phone is placed within the reachable range. Sometimes user loses his mobile he/she may not be able to locate it through ringing because mobile may not be within the reachable range, at that time a simple command from friends mobile will help user to receive phones GPS location information on friends mobile as a URL. Also the camera of the phone works in the background without knowing the person captures the pictures and sends this to the actual user.
