AbstractMobile Anti-Theft system is an application based on Android used for tracing back stolen or lost mobile. Once our system is installed onto a mobile phone and an alternate number is fed into the software (ATS). The owners SIM card gets registered in the database. Whenever phone is rebooted ATS is invoked in stealth mode and verifies whether if the SIM card present in mobile phone is of owner. If the SIM belongs to owner (registered in database), the software doesn’t do any activity. If SIM is been changed and that SIM is not registered in the database then, ATS sends a message to the alternative mobile number (friends / relatives number which is been saved while installing the application) in stealth mode and starts listening for incoming SMS messages. Now if owner send a SMS request to ATS asking for GPS co-ordinates, ATS would do so. Since our system is based on GOOGLE Android operating system our system would send the complete address (postal address) as to where the mobile is.
