Thanks. I think Avast is similar to Cerberus which I evaluated. It uses a server. I prefer something like GotYa which uses failed logins as the trigger to act without the need for a 3rd party server. It's totally standalone. Reports are issued via email and include both picture and location. Basically, it's a minimalist approach which I like. The only problem is that I get many more email reports than I expected based upon the settings I chose. At this point I'd like to consider any other similar apps before I make a final decision. In the meantime, I have tried to communicate with the GotYa developer without luck.

Update: I've managed to communicate with developer here:

Perhaps I can resolve the outstanding issues now
