GadgetTrak Busts Would-be Android Thieves
A couple of upstart thieves in Oregon, thinking they would walk away with some new Android phones, found out just how powerful location-based apps truly are. Unfortunately for these clowns, they learned the hard way. An Oregon Sprint store recently had a handful of Android phones stolen from the show floor, however someone had the foresight to install GadgetTrak Mobile Security ahead of time. Long story short, the app was able to not only return its accurate location, but also capture pictures of the suspects. A few phone calls later and the smart phones were back where they belonged.
You can read the finer details at the GadgetTrak blog and check out a few images of the suspects as well. The lesson in all of this is that you need to be proactive and vigilant. Take a few minutes out of your day and install this on your phone. If not GadgetTrak, at least some other mobile security client. Nobody wants to renew a contract or buy a phone (or tablet) outright if they don’t need to.
