The Android app Cerberus offers three different ways to protect and track your phone all in one place! 

Cerberus is the name of the three-headed hound that guards the gates of hell in Greek mythology. Cerberus is a mythological creature with three heads. It's also a useful Guardian Force (GF) from Final Fantasy 8, which casts Triple on your party when it comes into contact with it. This is not only an excellent anti-theft app for your Android phone, but it's also a very entertaining game. 

The Cerberus Android app is a worthy addition to everything we've previously discussed in our phone security roundup, and it certainly deserves its name. 

You'll find three different ways to protect your Android phone and SIM card if they've been lost or stolen, each of which has a significant amount of bite to it. The SIM Checker, which you can enable by logging into the Cerberus website with your account information and tracking your phone with texts, allows you to track your phone even if someone else has put a different SIM card in it. 

With the Cerberus remote login console, you can track down your misplaced phone. 

It is the remote login feature that is by far the most impressive of the three security measures discussed here. 

This provides you with access to a console from which you can track the location of your phone on Google Maps. In our testing, we discovered that our 'lost' Samsung Galaxy S2 was forced to connect to our Wi-Fi access point, allowing for more accurate location requests to be made by the app. 

Using the 'Get device info' command from the command drop-down menu, we were also able to retrieve the name of the Wi-Fi network we were connected to, as well as the IP address that was associated with it. 

If your phone is running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread or higher, Cerberus claims that the GPS antenna will be automatically enabled when you're searching for it, though we were unable to get this to work on our Galaxy S2, which was also running Android 2.3.3. 

In addition, the information on our SIM card was displayed, which means that if your phone has been stolen, the serial number of any new SIM card that has been installed should be displayed as well. Perhaps the most useful feature of the remote login console is that it allows you to force your phone to take pictures using both the main and front camera at the same time (if your phone has one). 

Additionally, you have the option of taking a mugshot of whoever is currently in possession of your phone and spying on their surroundings, in addition to pinpointing the approximate location of your phone. 

The ability to lock your phone with a four-digit PIN is another security measure that you have at your disposal; this is the same PIN locker that you can access from the settings of your Android phone. Cerberus simply provides you with the ability to configure this from the comfort of your own desktop. 

If someone tries to guess your PIN and guesses incorrectly, they'll be greeted by the sound of your phone's front camera snapping a picture of their befuddled face, which will then be sent to you by the Cerberus security system. 

You can also remotely wipe any sensitive information from the internal memory and the microSD card from the panel, so if someone manages to get past this, you can remotely nuke anything sensitive just to be on the safe side. 

By texting, you can keep track. 

A more low-tech solution is available if you cannot track your phone due to a lack of adequate 3G or Wi-Fi connections in the area where you are located. 

Many of the commands described above can be activated by texting the commands along with your Cerberus password to your phone's missing number. 

You would text "Cerberus [your password] find" to your phone number in order to locate your phone; within a couple of minutes, Cerberus will text you back with an approximate location as well as a link to Google Maps. 

It's also possible to test the command "cerberus [your password] enable data" to your phone in order to force the 3G modem to turn on if someone has disabled it. You can also send text commands to take pictures or wipe the contents of the internal or microSD card. 

Determine who has installed a new SIM card in your phone. 

The SIM Checker feature is a little more difficult to set up, but it is well worth the effort. Using this feature of Cerberus, you can determine whether or not someone has installed a new SIM card in your phone, and you can obtain the phone number associated with that SIM card, allowing you to track your phone using either of the two methods described above. 

You must make sure that all of the relevant checkboxes are checked in the Cerberus app's settings menu in order for the SIM Checker feature to be enabled in order to use it. 

What is the value of the three-headed dog in the window? 

It is completely free to download the Cerberus app from the Android Market, which provides you with a one-week free trial of the company's products. After this period has expired, you will be prompted to pay €2.99 (approximately £2.50) to obtain a full license. There are no subscriptions or renewal fees because this is a one-time purchase for the full license. Cerberus should be compatible with any Android device running version 2.2 or higher, and it can be used to secure and track up to five devices at the same time. 

Cerberus is featured on the Android Market page for the app itself, thanks to a video produced by the DailyAppShow crew that shows the app in action. Examine the demonstration video below to gain a better understanding of how this works before clicking on the app link to be directed directly to the Android Market page.
