    I'm looking for an anti theft software that can work for both windows and android.
    The only one I can find is Norton Anti Theft.

    Almost all of the anti-virus apps have phone location, remote locking etc.

    Personally, I believe that MacAfee and Norton are bloated, slow, resource-hogs and unreliable.

    Take a look at the free options from AVG, avast or lookout first and test the phone location to see how accurate they are for you.

    I use a free Prey account to help protect 2 Windows Home Server boxes and a Win7 laptop. Cerberus is installed on my phone.

    I installed it and liked it, except it showed one of my devices 1/2 mile from where it was. My only issue is with the upgrade. 60 bucks a year for 3 devices and 180 bucks a year for 4 to 10 devices. I have 6 things I would like to protect, but not for 180 bucks. I guess I will keep looking.

    tag, I'm interested also. I've used "Wheres my android" before, but I've only used the txting feature. I'd like to have one that will turn on the GPS even if GPS is off (WMD has something like this, just havent looked into it that much).
