Keep your hard earned smartphone safe by using Thief tracker. If your mobile is lost/stolen, any failed attempt to unlock your mobile will trigger this app to take picture from front camera and send you an email without the user getting to know.
Install, Activate and forget, you dont have to remember anything, no secret keywords, no username/passwords.
A notification will be displayed in task bar whenever the app uploads pic to server or fails to upload.
The notification email sometimes goes to Spam/Junk folder.
1) A successful or unsuccessful attempt is considered only when 4 dots in the pattern are selected. selecting 2 or 3 dots in pattern during unlock will not be considered as failure by android system and the app will not be notified about it. Its been observed that many users try with only 2 or 3 dots and report that app is not working.
2) The app will not know your password/pattern. App will only be notified by android system when there is a wrong attempt to unlock.
3) The app does NOT wipe data or do any harmful stuff to your mobile. The permission given is only for getting unlock failure attempt, taking pic and uploading it to server.

1. In some mobiles picture appears green or picture is not taken at all. Thats the limitation of mobile and we tried but cannot get it to work properly. We hope future firmware upgrade will solve those issues.
