Great App This is an amazing app for tracking a phone. It allows a lot of control by text(SMS) including having a device send its status, record sound, call you back, sound an alarm, turn on GPS to allow you to track it(tracking is possible over text), and turn on data to enable all other features on the website including displaying a message, setting a pin code, and taking a picture with the front facing camera when the thief exits out of an onscreen popup (with a costom message). I am a fan. And thank you Mr. Borg.

Sharad Raj

Simple and extremely useful If you're smart enough to properly configure this app, it seems almost impossible to steal your phone. I haven't had my phone stolen yet, but just testing wise, it is very capable of retrieving your phone even if they decide to change your sim card or deactivate your Google account. Worth looking into.

Robert Linkem

Simple, straitforward and intuitive This app is extreemly easy to use, intuitive functions and a very useful tool to have even if you don't have it. I know, I know sounds cryptic however this app can be pushed to your phone even after you lose it. Highly reccomend this.

Jennifer Nicole

Best "got stolen/lost your phone" app for android I LOVE this thing. I can remotely control my phone with my computer (via website) or someone else's phone (via txt). SO GOOD ITS CREEPY! Install on someone else's phone and your borderline invading privacy! ! Haha no really though it's a very sweet app. Recommend To all! A+++ ♡♡♡♡♡

Joseph LaBlanc

Did not work on phone Got it to work great on my tablet that needs wifi for it work. Could not get it to work on my phone. I know how to get it to work just pretty useless app if not useful on mobile device.

jaime delgado

Killer app!! Absolute must have. Loads of features (for free) I cant think of a way this app could be any better. Its everything u want and need for this kind of app. In an amazingly small package !The only thing Id like to see improve is the time it takes between the time you give a command on the website and the time its actually carried out. And ok maybe the grafic design could be more apealing on the eyes but im not type of person to give that much importance. This is a must-have app.


Best Tracking App Does whats its say. I recovered my phone nine months later after being stolen. I retrieved his messages, calls logs plus the location. I called the guy and he accepted to bring the phone back. Thanks very much.

Daniel Young

Awesome App Some of the SMS commands are glitchy, they take an hour before they work sometimes. It would be better if on the website you could select contacts from a list instead if putting a phone number in, and being able to see received messages easier. But a very cool app. I sent an SMS command to my phone to test it, I set the siren for five seconds and it went for one second. It would be better if the command cannot be seen if one received. Message picture does not function properly.

Jayson Thompson

Worked very well when my phone got stolen. Set up can be tricky at first, but if some piece of $h!+ sneaks in and takes your phone, you'll be glad you downloaded. This happened to me and i Traced the location from a friends phone and it gave me the exact address which was just a block over. On the way there I started sending "record audio" commands and taking pictures of the guy. when I got close, did the "sound alarm" command and I could hear it. Unfortunate that the guy got away and I never got my phone back, but was pretty impressed by the app.

Abdul Rauf

Cool App It's awesomely simple to use!!!

A Google User

Ugg I paid for this app I am trying to test to telling me to download the latest version when doing a contact search and other functions but there is no update. Also I get " a problem occurred sending this message to Google unauthorizedunauthorizederror401401 401

Jack Ankeny

Great Everything you need is free! You can track, lock and even send messages to your phone

melissa donovan

I very much like it I see there is a way to turn the target phone off, but I wish there was a way to turn the target phone on too, from the website. Also to be able to turn on the Mobile Data from the website would be absolutely great.

M Kendrik

Almost perfect Setup and tested most features. In general very inpressed, when this app saves you $$$ consider sending a reward the devs way. Bug, browser history returned the first 20 results not the most recent 20. SMS stuff didnt work at all, normal sms go through but these dont appear but also dont do any of the commands. Keep working on improving it but its already super useful!

Paigr Thompson

Not what I thought Upset with this app. I am pretty positive that my phone is in my house but unsure where. I think one of my brothers is trying to prank me. when I seen that my computer said push from google play I thought it would automatically send the app to my phone. No way to register online not that i can find at least.

Arthur HDZ

Galaxy s6 edge Love the app don't like that it doesn't work when the screen is off and also don't like that it says memory error once I do use the taking picture features

solethu matrose

I love it But you should have an option that allows you to hide it from Play Store thank you very much for the application

Shafraz Sadiyan

Location problem I've been using this app for over a year without any problems, but recently after updating to kitkat, I'm unable to activate gps through sms or through the control access on the androidlost site. Everything else works perfectly...

Rahul Gadakar

Looking good And working also good, at least we got 1 chance to get back our cell

Pete Johnstone

A have to have app. You need this in case of emergency. When your phone is lost or stolen and the data or wireless is off, this is the only app that can turn it back on for location.

Shobnom Eite

BEST EVER ANDROID SOFTWARE.........NO 1 million million android lost team....who behind work done for us!!!thank you very much!!!! BOSSSSSSSS

mohammed Al sayed

Vishakha Jadhav

Front camera, Rear camera don't work Both the camera options under 'Controls -&gt; Mobile' don't work. There appears an error 'memory error' in the notification panel of phone

Sprint 312

The Best!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! !this app does everything!! Love the ability to snap a pic of the thief secretly!!! I use it on all my phones & make my friends install it on theirs!

Paul Mansfield

A vital app Used it just now to save me walking to the car park to see if I'd left my phone in the car, and indeed there it was. ** I'd be desperately upset if my phone were lost or stolen and this app holds out hope. Install it on every device you own! Don't wait! ** Xperia Z Ultra, Android 4.4.4

ben clark

Does not work Web site keeps saying it will work when its can connect. Im sitting here with the phone in my hand turning on the wifi and 3g on. Cool idea tho. You get another star

Susu Ehab

Hated it . It won't be able to uninstall guys no body ever should install it it doesn't help in anything .HATED IT SO DAMN MUCH?

dizi froc

Wowww, this is amazing. I think this is the best android locker app ever. I love the sms feature to change the screen lock. I'll give u 5 stars bro

George Davis

Find my phone now Great app to have for your android phone.

siddhant garg

Not good. by mistake I clicked try premium features but there is no option to undo..

Warren Castro

Oneplus one Great app, but when taking a picture front or rear camera remotely, the target phone shows a black screen saying memory error. I tried in galaxy tab and Oneplus one

Kashif Riaz

mandatory application If this app is not on your mobile then you don't like your mobile. so trash it in my Dust bin :)

Diana Mills

Shady app! Stay away! Since I downloaded, all kinds of funny thing goin on here.Ran my anti-spyware & THIS app was tagged as suspicious.Get rid of it if you have it!

Jordan Merrill

Best I have found features on this app are incredible! Send error msg that takes picture when someone clicks it, priceless

Ashish Shah

Confused Is it working when the mobile data connection is disabled & phone lossed & locked..

Ray Navarro

Wont yet me deactivate it I use it ones does not let me uninstall

Cathy West

This sucks It won't even let me open the app

Angelo Gabriel Diyo Angelogame1

samsung galaxy dous gt 8267 how can find my lost phone

Burrito Eater

Awesome Best app hands down, but the message picture should be fixed since a thief can obviously hear the shutter sound.

maneesh sharma

Awesome i was using it successfully. But when i updated it to 2.64, recorded sound in silent on samsung i9082

Andi Ismailov

Самая лучшая! The best app ever!

Khalil Elfar

Simple and extremely useful If you're smart enough to properly configure this app, it seems almost impossible to steal your phone. I haven't had my phone stolen yet, but just testing wise, it is very capable of retrieving your phone even if they decide to change your sim card or deactivate your Google account. Worth looking into.

Kestra White

It works great Could you think about getting rid of finding your phone on the map. Its useful yes but it could also be a safety hazard. Like what if someone predator or hit man is trying to find you and they hack into your gmail account and click on the option see location. You see why that could be a safety issue?

Alejo HiGuera

Greeeat I was looking for something like this, works pretty good, such a shame it's not working on/off GPS on lollipop. I realize about something, when you requires a photo from the front or rear camera the app opens and shows it, I think it would be better if it works in the background. I really like it

usha yadav

Best app.... This is the best app I have ever use. I have used many app but they are useless , without data connection u cannot control your phone from them.

Asriel Aguon

I used it from my laptop i love this.. but i didnt use the app.. all i did is log on to google under the same account thats registered to my phone number. while logged in i searched "android lost"and it immediately pulled up a map. as i keep hitting the locate button i was able to find the people who stole my phone.. when i was in the area that they locator said it was in, i had my mother activate the phone ringer and i heard my ringer go off in these tweakers i was able to get my phone back after confronting her and her boyfriend .. although my screen was shattered i recovered my phone so this is awesome.. note im not really computer smart so its pretty simple ..ok bye ..good luck

Tarcisio Alves

Cool The app is the best of category. Simple to use and completly functional.

Paddy Landau

Excellent range of features to track the phone. When Google's Device Manager stopped working, I looked for a replacement. There is nothing that comes anywhere near the thoroughness and comprehensiveness of this app. It is so rich in features that I don't need the Premium features, but I purchased them anyway to support the dev. The UI is very plain and old-fashioned and could do with major revamp (both the app and the website), but at least it is simple and easy to use. Not all of the unimportant features work on the Nexus 5, but all of the important ones work properly. This app is an impressive effort and I shall certainly no longer bother with Google Device Manager.

Sarahb Good

REALLY WORKS! New note4 stolen in downtown tucson a week ago and sold to stranger. Took a week to find which find app i had installed. Used app 3am, police helped me recover phone by noon next day. Had GPS map led me to apt and phone sent me pic of guy's face.

MDRocky Mountain

Awesome App I had misplaced my phone and didn't have my ringer on so naturally I panicked. I went online and downloaded this app remotely and had the app call my phone with the ringer at full volume. AMAZING APP, I WILL DEFINITELY USE THIS IN THE FUTURE.

A Google User

I paid for this app I am trying to test to telling me to download the latest version when doing a contact search and other functions but there is no update. Also I get " a problem occurred sending this message to Google unauthorizedunauthorizederror401401 401 6-25-15 i lost my phone and have tried this app i paid for, with no results.

Aluiah Jael Mangapan

Doesn't work at all. The phone's WiFi connection has to be turned on. What if i didn't turn it on when it was stolen? It's not easy to understand therefore it's not easy to use. How do i even deactivate it?

Thoyib Antarnusa

Doesn't Fetch Commands Automatically It's indeed very useful but I can't get it work in my device. I have to fetch the commands manually to see whether it's working or not.

Aryan Dawar

Great app Developer you did a great job making such a powerful app. This app is great for getting into other's devices but not for thieves. Thieves are smart enough to hard reset the device as soon as they get their hands on it. It would be awesome of these features can be transfered to /system directory but still it's a great app!

Sarthak Haldar

How to use it ? I have just downloaded and installed this app on the device I fear of get stolen. But now what to do ?

Lloyd Spence

Wont work Only works if you have the phone and turn the app on. Otherwise _ dead

Kevin Allardyce

Doesn't work at all... Sorry. Going to go try another app. UNINSTALL.

Rockystar Kummar

app is good, but which is free options for free users? and paid user amount is monthly basis , yearly or one time paid? please clear to my confusion!!!

praveen prave

Error In app Installation ending process (Unknown error code during application install "- 25").. How to clear this?

John Scott

Both SMS and internet work very well. One feature I would like to see is password protection to prevent factory reset and/or application removal. It would help if SMS commands were hidden from other apps but Google has made that next to impossible.

Widya Ispurdianto

What's going on? The system show error on website when I make track my phone. Please tell me what's happen? First time I install, it can be track but after few month can't track anymore just error message.

Karan Tarade

Doubtful about privacy. Are you sure this system will not get hacked? Or may be you secretly monitor us??

Jason Karatsoridis

Very well designed-other reviewers read this! This is a very well thought out app. It covers a lot of bases in order to prevent thieves from noticing it, or uninstalling it if they do notice it. Which has led to some poor reviews- which are undeserved. Yes, it's a bit hard to uninstall- it has admin rights, because it can't do it's job without them. Remove admin rights, then you can uninstall it. Ignore the bad reviews- a good security system is hard to remove or defeat. That's kind of the point.

Jason Wyatt

Doesn't work on RAZR M This doesn't work on my sons Droid RAZR M. Nothing will work unless I have the phone and manually use the fetch command option. Then everything works for that time only. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and reset everything and still the same problem. Not very useful if phone gets lost it stolen. Please fix!! This app is one of the reasons I switched him from an iPhone to a Droid!! Works fine on my other phones.

Indrajit Neogi

Great app. Kindly stop reading all.the stupid reviews the app. Is really good it exactly does what it says...only problem I found is with the location tracking its not displaying or send any location rest of the features work prefectly.....

Rebecca Goin

Lost & FOUND!!! I mistakenly put my phone down by the time I realized... someone was traveling with my phone... this app let me password protect my cell phone while giving me exact location of my phone if your phone is actually stolen from you (I was careless and set mine down) you have grounds for a police report and they will escort you in recovering your stolen property... in my case I have a brave husband... one more thing to add pair this app with the g cloud app and your personal info pics ect. is backed I was lucky

Brendan Veitch

Awesome Awesome App, I left my phone in a cab and when I rang the ph they said it was theirs now. So I activated lost android took pictures from both cameras and tracked the ph to the exact location. I have my ph back and could not be happier!! Thank you Borg for a fantastic App! I recommend this App to anybody.

Kody Montes

Be cautious I think this app is essential to your security. If you ever lose your phone or have it stolen, this is a must have, but a word of caution. Have a strong password on your Google account. Last week, somebody broke in to my Google account and was messing with my phone through this app. The screen was turning on and off and a pin code appeared on the lock screen. I ended up having to factory reset my phone. It is worth the risk, though. Just have strong security and good backups in place.

Avinash Tiwary

5 Stars for helping to find my phone Installed this years ago and never had to use it. Dropped my phone last night, used this app to record sound, take pictures and get a GPS location. Found the phone today using the info in a sleazy phone shop. Thanks a bunch guys. Really appreciate your work. I'd almost given up. Although some features like remote wipe of SD card didn't work, having found my phone, I'm thankful it didn't work.

faiz mohdkhan

THE BEST SOLUTION FOR FINDING LOST DEVICES TILL DATE & ITS FREE :) hey guys its the best app i have used ever for free .. many services are added the developers deserve the 5 stars for sure ... . Please make capture screenshot work for new versions of android .. then i'll go premium ..thanks ..its the best app for finding lost devices ... thanks

Ashley Collett

A must have! This is a great FREE app! I am honestly very impressed and would even pay to have it! As of yet I have not had to use all of the functions but I have tested them and they all work. I love how it's hidden and disguised as "notes" and can't be deleted thru managing apps! Easy to use functions and doesn't drain ur battery. GPS is on point too! Hopefully this app will only be a "just in case" but if not, I feel at ease knowing I have something that works! Lockwatch has nothing on this app!

Frankie D'Urso

So helpful My phone was stolen one day, but I got it back. After, to prevent it happening again, I installed this. It helps me find it when I want to know where it is. I also turned on the setting where it sends me an email when it it is low on power. I feel much safer with this application. There are tons of features, give this a chance to see all of the functions, you will love it O:-)

Maria Vaughn

Absolutely Awesome App =) Completely love this app/developer! He's worked really hard to keep providing this great app to everyone for free. Thank you for that! After having my phone stolen then wiped before I could fully track it I highly recommend rooting your phone and installing this app directly on the system. Then it won't matter if the thief does a factory reset. Hard lesson learned for me the first time but I've since rooted and installed the app. I wiped my phone and tested the app and it remained fully functioning! A++

Suresh Amrutham

What if my mobile is switched off? This happens in India,after the mobile has theft they will switch it off. It is difficult to get it back. Does this app support.

Joshua Webber

Best app EVER!! Totally love this is hidden on phone and gives you FULL control over everything..if you ever lose your phone or it gets stolen you WILL get it back..GREAT APP!!

dawn Rogers

No longer works with new phone This app use to work great but now I have new phones and I can't view the logs. It states logs are stored on computer, but where and who's computer? I have galaxy 6. It worked previously on my galaxy 4.

Purvesh Shah

Best App Loved this app with awesome features and everything works like charm, smooth, seamlessly. I must recommend this app for theft protection of your Android phone, best app in the market.

florin marinela

Good It does the job, very accurate, it is a good that the uninstall procedure is a bit tricky, it is understandable to be assured the protection of your phone. Just reinstalled on my s4. Working good. One of the best out there.

Sashaank Ramakrishnan

Data connection not getting enabled by SMS command All others are fine except that data connection is not getting enabled by SMS command. Please do something about this. Should I root?

Clyde Meli

doesn't show my phone.. :( doesn't control any android devices I tested.. useless, probably designed for older android versions!

Leonardo Lessa

Suspicious I had my credit card information stolen after providing the information in Chrome and this was the only app with admin rights over my phone. I'm not sure it was this app, but it's at least suspicious.

Shona Kay

my phone was stolen and was told that this works on laptop to give me full control without needing my phone so i can track and take a picture etc but it doesnt

Justin Brown

Awesome! Used the app to track down a stolen phone. Used the camera feature to get a picture of the person and the GPS to track them down. This is a must have!

Brian Putorti

Like the idea of the app But since installed my phone has been freezing and acting very slow don't know if it's worth it

yousef odeh

It is verry good I left my phone in resturant and some body take it and by this app i know the person and i get it back it is really good thank you

Isaiah Andress

Crashes... I would love to use this app but for some reason when I start it the app goes in a black screen, then it crashes. I don't know if this goes for only me but until it stops crashing, my rating is staying at 1 star.

Eddie Suarez

Perfect Whoever gives this all one star clearly doesn't know how to use it. Has worked on every Android phone i have ever owned And always a requirement when I get a new one. Read the tutorials if you can't figure it out

Jack Ankeny

Great Everything you need is free! You can remotely track, lock and even send messages to your phone

Spencer Rawlson Spady

It requires to start the app on the phone so that you can use it but I installed it remotely because I lost the phone. There's no way I can start the app, need a little help with that

Lolo C

Used for over a year Love this app. Only problem is the important logs or pics go into a black hole. The page shows logs in a list, but I can't open them. The top of the page says they're on my computer...what computer? Where? How in the world do I find them? Please help!

Alex Perez

Not working for new phone. This app was working great for my old phones. But doesn't work for my LG Stylo.

Brian Kiprotich

Simply the best... Massive thank you to the developer(s). Why doesn't this come preinstaled??? I hope I don't need to use ity anytime soon though :-)

Nino Marcelin

Excellent This app is pretty good, definitely gets the job done and has tons of features. I just wish it could record video as well. Excellent!

Anthony Rivera

Yess finally!!!! If i ever lose my phone i can track it anf find it. Alsp it has many features which can help you get your phone back

Maggie Ramos

I need help getting this off ma phone i hit deactivate cause it said i need to befor i uninstalled but it wont help i hate this app

jaime delgado

Killer app!! Absolute must have. Loads of features (for free) Its everything u want and need for this kind of app. In an amazingly small package !The only things Id like to see improve is a feature that allows remotely turning on data connection also sometimes the lag between the time you give a command on the website and the time its actually carried out is long and ok maybe the grafic design could be more apealing on the eyes but im not type of person to give that much importance. This is a must-have app.

Mike Usa

Great App I'll give it 5 stars if you can explain why when I request to show the app in my Apps it stays as personal notes? I have tried multiple times to display app package and nothing. Don't want to re-install cyz I'm not sure if I'll hafta set everything up again.

Sam Bleakley

when i send the sms command it doesnt do anything i log in on the website and says i still need to register... which i cant because i dont have the phone://

Darren Curtis II

This app needs to update. This app will not work for any phone which has been release after since April 27, 2013 with an OS 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Miguel Ángel Ibáñez Mompeán

Best app in its class This app allows full remote control from the internet and via SMS, and do a lot of amazing, useful things. People who don't know how to use it shouldn't rate it 1 star!!! Not fair. Learn before rating!

Vahan Shamlian

Best app of its kind! This app has given me peace if mind for years. The best part is I never have to wonder if it's still working - I get an email with GPS location when the battery goes critical, reminding me that if my phone does get lost one day, this app will have my back :)

Mariana Nolasco

Perfect Absolutely the best app in the market. Having this on your phone is a necessity. It's really convenient and easy to use, most importantly, it has saved me many many times. Congratulations to the creators

Christopher Herbert

THIEF TRACKER This app keeps the thieves at bay when you find out where they are using the GPS features from the android, whether it is off or on.

Dayana Cardona

Consider Interesting app. But It should have a button to turn on phone and enable location .on lost phone it shouldn't let the lost phone know When you request location.


Wonderful app My phone was stolen. This app let me know exactly where my phone was through GPS and took a picture of the person trying to unlock my phone. I knocked on the person's front door and showed them their picture that the phone took. I told them to give me back my phone or I will call the police. They couldn't deny it and handed over my phone. Thanks Android Lost.!!

Despot Geo

Sms commands not working on LG G2. Can not [data start]. . Instead of turn on data, i just have a usual sms message on my phone. PLEASE FIX

Darshan Sarwade

Andrea Trentini

Simply best I love the apps. I got stack stick my fingerprint login and unfortunately I forgot my backup password. Google Device Manager could not able to unlock my phone but this app saved my days.

A Google User

wajih ben

Thank you for being completely free Perfect app... lots of features


Excellent Thanks the app

Pham Thanh Trung

Best app I love this app

Aliyah Andrews

Hated it Hated it because doesn't help you They won't let me uninstall it

J Nicole

I use this app all the time because I am not the best at keeping track of my phone. If I accidentally leave it at home, the GPS shows that, or if its hidden under something, the flashing light and siren lets me know quickly where it is! I have used this program for years on a few phones. Also fun to freak people out with by sitting on a computer and typing a message and having the phone somewhere else talk to them.

John R

Recovered stolen phone This app helped recover my stolen phone. I was able to see where it was accurately on gps (and turn gps on remotely), see what the phone saw, hear what the phone heard and give all this information to the police to successfully retrieve it. Install it BEFORE it's too late. My only suggestion is make the website to control it, mobile phone friendly. It was little difficult to navigate with lots of scrolling necessary. But thanks again.

Jeremy Crumrine

Doesn't work! I download it, install it, go to the wb page to activate it...can't activate, can't find the app icon on my phone and can't Uninstall it once I find the secondary app it installed. HOW DO I UNINSTALL THIS APP? I JUST WANT IT GONE!

Mined diamond0

Really nice Luckily I didn't have to use this app in a "real" case, but it has served me well when I left my phone somewhere, for example at a friend's house...


Good but.. I am using this app on all my android device since 2013 but today i installed it on my new phone and try to register it by sending "androidlost register" as a message but nothing happend please help:/

Mohsin Mughal

Did not work Previously it's work very nice but now I have installed it my kit Kat software mobile and it's does not work. What happened with this app.only work when I press fetch command button inside troubleshooting tab.

Soh Fanny

Android lost i like this apps because it allow lots of function, but somehow dont know why recently i try to sent message and take pictures but my note 4 didn't receive anything. Please advice. tks

Paul C

Didn't work. Could never access the gps or switch gps on. Uninstalled.

keira price

Testing When I test it works fine but I lost it and won't work

David Archuleta

Best app ever Literally cannot get any better than this. Android lost was instrumental in helping me out when my phones screen stopped working and I still needed to send/receive texts, as well and wipe my phone before sending back to the factory!

Anish Kumar

THE BEST OF THE BEST This app never misses on my smartphone. If you know what's good for your smartphone security, then AL is the answer. Thanks mr. Theis Borg. Just add some more features in sms command like camera capture by sms. Thanks big. You deserve my 5 stars.

Jogy George

Excellent. Suggestion: The lock screen message for emergency mobile recovery is a wonderful facility for PIN locked mobile. However, once you unlock it, the message should be removed from the display. It is stays there interfering with message typing.

Excellent app. Especially to switch on data remotely using SMS from any phone. Very nice app. Thanks

Royal Bonjour

WOW, GREAT APP I recommend this app to everyone that i associate with and my customers in the phone business.

Ogunsanwo Adebayo

THE ULTIMATE The dud who makes this app happen needs to be seriously supported. The future potential and application is crazy! Please keep it up and keep adding more features eg key logger,stealth real time ambiance listening,remote video recording,stealth sms control, alternative gmail association with app instead of domiciled gmail,alternative payment method instead of domiciled bank accounts...All in all, This is the altimate anti-theft andriod app ever !!!

Alex Woodcock

Simply the best app for recovering a lost phone.

Tara Do

Aurelia Pinder

Edson Mahecha

Olga K

Old version was working. New version is not working unfortunately

Colin D

Flagged as malware on latest samsung update Great app. Unfortunately flagged as malware on latest Samsung update. Really I would say not the devs problem. You should be able to add exceptions on knox but unfortunately you can't seem to. I tried installing the knox manager tool but this won't install either (something about screen overlay stopping it) really irritating. Emailed knox asking for solution. Dev; if possible from your side please fix!

Arunima Kar

Bullshit /money sucker It is a disgusting app! When you will try to find your lost phone it will lock your current phone you are trying and there is no way to unlock it !! I tried to find my Moto g 4 from my samsung grand prime , instead it locked my samsung grand prime!! Admin give a logical reason and proper sollution to it !!

Eric Flores

2 big issues I found. 1) It doesn't work if the phone is in China unless the phone is connected to a VPN. There is no remote control to connect to a VPN. 2)The camera function (both front and rear) will cause the app to pop up on the screen. This makes security useless if the phone was stolen and the thief is alerted by the app itself. Once alerted it is easy for the thief to quickly turn off the phone and you won't be able to track it anymore. These are 2 big flaws which I hope can be fixed.

Peter Sharkey

Didn't work for me When it works it works great BUT app needed to be removed and reinstalled every few days. Im using Samsung Galaxy s4 and AT&T service. I tried to use it to keep track of a driver but can't get it to keep working.

Jupiter Day

Gabba Gabba heyd! My cousin tried to steal my phone I was able to have a match on the other side of town with the rest of our relatives and we beat him senseless. His face and teeth will never be the same but my phone is wonderfully safe

Ivanel Petrenkov

Great app but flagged as malware now ? It's a great app. I've been using it for years but now my phone is flagging it as malware and prompting me to uninstall it ? I love the SMS control features. No other app offers such control for free.

A Google User

Flagged as Malware. Love this app. But the latest update has Samsung Device Security flagging it as malware and the constant notifications are very annoying. There's no way to ignore the flag. Please fix.

Doron Davidovski

Great app I've been using it for couple of years, excellent app. The last version is flagged as a malware. Pls fix it asap cause the notifications are pretty bothering. Thank you

Soh Fanny

Android lost i like this apps because it allow lots of function, but somehow dont know why recently i try to sent message and take pictures but my note 4 didn't receive anything. Please advice. tks

Dusan Radomirovic

Great app I've been using it ever since I started using android. Please note that the last version is flagged as malware. I know it isn't, but the notification is getting annoying. Please fix it.

Chris Eckhart

MALWARE Why haven't you fixed it yet? Seriously thinking about uninstalling, I love the app, but I have to trust my Antivirus.

Razvan Calinovici

Best app ever. Working flawlessly. Hard to configure because it has a lot of features, but still the best. Might need a password/pin before you want to deactivate it from Device Administrators to harden protection.

Dayana Cardona

Hmmm Great app but Location history would be great... Instead of register text maybe a registered call? The text warns the thief

Robert Bachmeier

Trouble I paid for premium. Does this expire? All of a sudden the app was gone and when I went to reinstall it does not show premium without me paying again.

Atul Pote

Awesome App Found my note 3 phone with help of this app. Even managed to get pic of guy who stole it. Worked like charm as phone wasn't formatted.

Great app very smart Just wondering if you can trigger a Wi-Fi API that tracks bssid's & essid's that are in the area for geo analysis .... have bean using this app a few years love it u always accept new Ideas and make the app better

Akshay More

Detected as Malware..!! Samsung's KNOX security detected this app as malware.. Plz Fix it.. I don't wanna uninstall it.

Sharbel El-sayyed

Works well, Last phone got stolen so i installed this on my new phone just incase.

Raquel Cohen

Terrible DO NOT GET THIS APP. I thought the app was useless and it didn't help at all. 0000000

Bernhard Hopfenmüller

Works nicely, however... ...the latest version is falsely?!detected as malware by avast.

Gil Greenstein

great app, using it for years now, but recent update flagged as malware by samsung security. can something be done with it?

Kiran Mahmood

Latest update crashes my s4 It flags as malware. Plz fix this!

Mukesh Sharma

Why does the app disappears after few weeks every time I install it in my phone?

A Google User

Very usefull Working perfectly! As it should, install and forget it. Thanks! Switched from sgitty cerberus.

Usman Cheema

Trina Rumpf

I installed this and love it If I had this when my phone was stolen this would have got my phone back fast with the alarm

Eric Jones

Trojan My security software found a Trojan in this application and every time I uninstall it, it automatically downloads again. POS

A Google User

Awesome This is an amazing app and amazing idea, very handy, +1000

Kell K

Working great ..Big plus would be mobile app control!!

Bob P Wilson

The best I've used this forever on all my devices and this app is absolutely the best. Be aware, because of the scope of this software, its needed permissions, and administrators rights used by this software, you will get false-positive on many malware programs. This app is not malware! If possible, update your security apps to either ignore or exclude this app. I recommend everyone install and use this app for device recovery, safety.


easy log in to control a lot of these aps require you to text codes to the device from another phone to control. good luck remembering those codes. this you just log into google account. yes, any good security will flag as malware because of its features. its not. this is also well hidden in the device as personal notes so no one detects its installed unless they can get into play store or are familiar with the app


It has all the security features which are required to save my content and check my phone remotely. It works perfect when the phone is online. It's has the greatest privacy options. I can't found any other app like this, not even among the more expensive security services with recurring fees. Such a huge help, thanks.

Kerry Gullage

Lost Android - MOTO G 3rd & 4th This is the very best phone finder I have found on the market, hands down! 31+ functions available for locating a lost/stolen phone. I have thus far retrieved my stolen phone no less than 3 times.... The last time I was just in time to prevent it from being sold to a crooked dealer. Caught them in the middle of the deal! I will always install this most awesome functioning tool! ??

April Sunshine

STOP changing my screen time out!! Good lord. Why is this a thing? The controls in my actual phone won't allow me to change to the screen time it I want and when I change it on this app's website it continually reverts to a preset time rather than the preference I stated again and again.

Josh Pate

Flagged as malware I've used this for a few years now without any issues. I've never had to use it to find my phone. I recently installed webroot on my phone and this was flagged as malware. I don't believe this is a false positive from webroot. Either way I'd rather be safe, so I'm uninstalling Lost Android.

Doug Rinehart

Absolutely incredible! Thought there were some issues going with the app. It had stopped working but after playing around with it for a while I found out that you must select the top option on the top right that has 'hero' in it. Only then would my phone actually receive the commands. I have it setup on all of my family members phones.

Sean Potter

PLEASE READ This is / has been the best app ever made for its purpose, if you cannot figure it out or take time to read instruction. Go elseware. It is NOT malware!! Any app with this amout of flexibility in the system will get flagged by crappy malware apps, especially when the AV company is too stupid to whitelist known apps like this one. Its an app that installs under a diff download name. Sick of readed all the bad comments that are pure ignorance. Pick up a book.The most deserving 5 star app ever made.

Charles R

Nothing fancy but it works It seems a bit clunky at first but once you get used to it it works like a charm. Test it after installing it and familiarize yourself with the controls. I feel comfortable knowing it's installed on my phone. This is one of the very first apps I install on every new Android I get :)

Alex M

Great app but I'm having problems I have 2 samsung s7s both on my same Google account (work and personal phone) and I sent the push to both phones but seems to only be responding with the phone I have and not the other that was stolen :/ says it's installed on the stolen one just fine. I don't know what to do now...

Great App but! Latest has been flagged as malware.. Samsung S6 dev. Please resolve or I will have to remove app, since update nothing but grief.

Pravin Shingavi

Super app but some bugs While taking pictures from remote command it make sound and start the android lost app.. It may aware the theft about android lost.. And another bug is when we make it hide by using hide package command then it not working. Above bugs are occurred on my one plus x with Android 6. Please fix the bug.

Angel Rios

What a nightmare Install the app, try to installed, and there is no way to unistal this app. I try to deactivate the app and another mesage pop up.I'm so mad that I try everything but unable to uninstall. Theres not a procedure even on their website. Now I have no way to erase this program from my phone. This is kind of malicious from this company. No way to contact them to help. Do not install this app! I'm furious.

Terina Erb

Misplaced I'm always misplacing my phone. This app is amazing!!! It's saved me a lot of time searching.

Dont know if im stupid but i dont get it at all Too much work to get on

Fexjo Osx

Autostart this App (Personal Notes) frequently please Please Add the ability to Autostart the app frequently even after killed (just like WhatsApp).. Because MIUI (Xiaomi) keeps on deleting background cached app when i tap "close all"

Sam Tiny

Can not enable sms featured or anything I can not enabled any features... Why help me

Lisa Wooldridge

Lisa Anyone else having alarm issues with this app?sounds like a siren going off.

Great app but flagged as malware My avast antivirus has been flagging this as malware. Is there an issue with the code?

Ibraheem A

Malware?!! i keep receiving a warning message from the smart manager says that this app has been identified as a malware... any comments?

Shravan Kothari

Love the app and all is features. The best Find my Android app that's out there in my opinion offering features you didn't even know you needed. The best one is the one where you can make your phone talk remotely, makes everyone think you're a magician. Cheers to the developers, keep it up!

Sthiwa alfaiziey

Good ok It's not work if handphone on standby position (several minute after open this app) on asus zenfone 2 bcause in power manager is not yet setting on allow, thx
