Can't find phone now... Find phone function is now inert. Overly complicated. Text simply goes through to phone. Spams target number with repeat texts. Now useless. Way better before when you got a link back and you could click on it. Can only use SMS commands if the phone I want to sent SMS from has this installed. Gone downhill.
Really disappointed I had the older version and it worked very well GPS remote tracking was fast and reliable, now half the app doesn't work and it will not send location ever.
Newest Update Breaks Tablet Functionality Now, the only way to launch the app when hidden is to call your PIN. If you have a tablet without a SIM, this is obviously impossible. Previously, you could still send a launch command from the web interface, but this has been broken as well. If you are upgrading, you can no longer send any commands to your non-SIM tablet, since SMS won't work either. Unfortunately I recommend Cerberus or Android Lost instead if you have a non-SIM tablet.
Stolen mobile: Micromax Canvas HD, Current mobile: Micromax Fire 3. Didn't work on 1st mobile not working on current one either. Well my mobile got stolen, it had avast AND root permissions too...but all I got was "cannot locate your device" message when I tried locating using web avast account. For about 20 mins I was able to call the mobile (obviously the driver didn't answer because he had no intentions of returning the mobile I forgot on the backseat), but the web access could neither locate not mark it as lost nor wipe the device (as proved by the momentary change in WhatsApp accounts last seen). Lock and siren stops with reboot
Newest update breaks functionality Read description, old version was great.No longer root options either. So if phone is factory reset this app is useless.
Great app Have used Avast products for a few years with no issues. Anti virus and Anti theft apps running on current phone.
