find my phone?” – its cell phone locator features find and control it remotely.
■ Locate and Track your lost phone or droid on a map through our web-based mobile phone tracking feature (uses GPS tracker and other triangulation methods). ■ Control your cell phone remotely, manage your device via a web-based interface or SMS if the phone is stolen (to do this, go to: http://my.avast.com). ■ Remotely lock or wipe the phone memory, to keep your data safe. ■ Remotely take photos or listen to audio of the phone’s surroundings. ■ Set up a SIM-card-change notification to another device. ■ Stealth Mode automatically hides the app on your phone whenever Anti-Theft is activated, so that a thief is not even aware of its presence.

■ Remote lock. ■ Find my phone and display it on a map.
