Installation instructions

Anti-Theft (rooted) works on any Android devices (requires Android 2.1 or later). You can also install and run this application on your PC or Mac by using an Android emulator app. Here's how to do it:

Install Anti-Theft (rooted) on Android devices

Select one of the two options below, depending on the type of file you downloaded from this page.

Install APK file

Find and select the APK file. Tap 'Install' when the APK installer menu shows up. Afterwards, complete the installation by following any additional instructions that appear on-screen.

Install XAPK file

To install a .XAPK file, first download and install the Split APKs Installer (SAI) application. Then, open the SAI app and choose the "Install APKs/XAPK" option. Locate the .XAPK file you wish to install and click 'Install.'

Install Anti-Theft (rooted) on Windows 10/11 and Mac

This app can be operated on a computer with an Android emulator. While there are various emulators available, this tutorial uses BlueStacks, which is compatible with both Mac and Windows systems.

Installing BlueStacks is straightforward. Simply download the installer from the BlueStacks website and run it. Be aware that the installer is large and setting up the engine might take some time.

If you don't have other programs associated with APK/XAPK file types, BlueStacks will open these files by default. To install an app, either double-click the APK/XAPK file or drag-and-drop it onto the BlueStacks home screen. Then, confirm the installation. Once installed, the app will appear on the BlueStacks home screen.

That's all! You've now successfully installed Anti-Theft (rooted) on your PC Windows and Mac using BlueStacks.

This app is for rooted phones only! If your phone is not rooted, please install the standard avast! Anti-Theft.

Best free cell phone tracker helps you find and track your lost or stolen device, making ‘lost’ Android phones/tablets a thing of the past.
No need to think “How can I find my Android phone?” – its cell phone locator features find and control it remotely.

Easy to use root install and update wizards (no command line knowledge required to use the tool). Provided also for NAND protected devices (write protected on system partition).

TOP FEATURES
■ Locate/Track your ‘lost’ phone on a map through our web-based mobile phone tracking feature (uses GPS tracker and other triangulation methods).
■ Control your cell phone remotely via a web-based interface or SMS if the phone is stolen (to do this, go to: http://my.avast.com).
■ Remotely lock and/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 FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
You can trigger remote features via SMS command from a friend’s phone or via our web interface at http://my.avast.com

PREMIUM FEATURES
★ Geofencing: Phone performs specific actions (e.g. lock, activate siren, send location) when outside of a set perimeter (e.g. if you go to a cafe and set a 500m perimeter, and somebody steals your phone and takes it beyond that, it activates your specified actions).
