Android app will snap photo of thief trying to unlock your device
 

 

[pic - click to view]


The next time a thief tries to break into your smartphone or tablet, you may be able to get the culprit's mugshot emailed to you.

Lookout Mobile Security has updated its free Android app with a new feature called "Lock Cam" that helps users spot where their lost phones or tablets might be and who might have taken it.

The Lock Cam takes a picture using devices' front-facing cameras when someone incorrectly enters a device's unlock code three times in a row.

The app then emails the picture, along with the location of the device, to the users' email address. Lookout says the app does all of this silently so thieves have no idea they've been captured on camera.

The updated app with the Lock Cam feature can be downloaded from Google Play. It only works with devices running Google's Android operating system. The company said it wants to add the feature to its app for the iPhone and iPad but doesn't have a timetable as to when that might happen.

Not sure if it's automatic on unlock. But you can tell AndroidLost to snap a picture using the front or rear camera at anytime. You can also send a fake text message with AndroidLost and when the thief opens the message, it will automatically snap a picture.

yeaaa, with what I was peeping I didn't see an option to have it automatically take pics on wrong unlock, might email the dude who does the coding on that to throw that to him.. but I think I know what u talking about with the text message jawn tho with the text message commands & dope possibilities there.

AndroidLost. It uses no battery since all of the things it does is done sever side. Lookout is a battery k!ller since it tries to be a virus protector too.
