Cerberus is one of those anti-theft apps that we covered recently, especially when it announced support for Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s one of those apps that help Android users either locate and/or lock their devices when it gets stolen, and a very solid one, as it happens. The over 1 million downloads at the Google Play Store says a lot about the apps capabilities. It has now been updated to version 3.1 with some new features.
With Cerberus 3.1, you get full support for Android Wear devices. Cerberus can now be set to send an alert to your watch to let you know when it's lost a connection with the phone or tablet. It also allows for users to initiate a "here I am" alert on their phone from their smartwatch, or even start the Cerberus Emergency Mode that emails you updates on your device's location.
There was also an issue with version 3.0 that it was somehow incompatible with "device administrator" privileges in Android Lollipop. Thankfully, that has been fixed with this new release. The app can now control various lockscreen and password functions, as well as wipe the device completely from remote.
If you are already using Cerberus, you can update the app for this. If you want to try out this security app, download it via the Google Play Store at the source link below.
