The objective of this project is to create an android application “Mobile theft monitoring” where we are able to find our lost phone easily.

Sometimes we accidently tend to replace our phone somewhere and we end up searching for it. Yet sometimes we are lucky to get our phones back but sometimes we never get it back.

Hence to avoid such situations and keeping the recent demand and the greed for phones in mind we have decided to develop this application “mobile theft monitoring”.

Mobile Theft Monitoring Activity Diagram

This application gets activated as soon as the person who has stolen the phone changes the sim and switches on the phone. The user will not know that an automatic message is being sent to the predefined number.

This message will contain the sim details as well as the location details. This information will be sent as a message to the destined number till the application is uninstalled in the mobile. This will be like a torture to the user and makes it easy to find the location of the phone and track the user.

The location of the device is found using GPS and the details are sent to the predefined number in the form of a message as soon as the user changes the sim and switches on the phone .

The application also consists of the setting of the number to which the message regarding the sim and the location details are to be sent.

In this application all the operations are done in the background using the concept called “service”.

Thus “mobile theft monitoring” is a useful application which helps us to track and find the device in an effective manner.

INTRODUCTION

Nowadays since the usage of phones has increased ,the demand for  creative and new applications has also increased .

The security of mobile phones play an important   role hence we decided to create a project   called “mobile theft  monitoring”.

PROJECT ANALYSIS

It is an appication where it helps the user to find out where the device is if it is stolen.when the person steals the phone and changes the sim an  automatic  message which displayes the location of the device ,sim number,phone number, imsi number  will be sent  to a number  which  we specify in the settings . thus the device that has been stolan will be found easily .

In our appication we have the facility to specify the num to which a msg about the location.

The application also consists of the setting of the number to which the message regarding the sim and the location details are to be sent .

In this application all the operation are done in the background using the concept called “service”.

A special feature of this application is that we have provided a long press for the specification of the  broadcast reciever number in the application itself which the user will not know. The screen that will be displayed to him

SCOPE:

The scope of this project is that we will be able to get our device back and we will get the sim details even if the person has changed the sim . In addition to that we will also get the phone number and the location  details which makes the theft monitoring action an easy task.

The objective is to design a simple, intuitive interface with limited screen estate for the monitoring of the theft action.

FEATURES:

The main feature of this project is that this application does not need any special indication or operation, the sim and location details are automatically sent as a message to the destined number as soon as the user changes the sim and switches on the phone .

Another feature of this project is that we have the option to put the sim in white list , so that it traces only if a new sim has been inserted by another person and not our permanent number.

Usually when a device is lost we have applications where only the location of the phone is sent to another phone but in our project the SIM details and the location details are sent to the destined number making the tracking process a less tedious job.

Our project works in such a way that the user will not be knowing that the sim and the location details is being sent as a message to a specified number as soon as he changes the sim switches on the phone.

Since nowadays the craze and the greed for phones has increased it is becoming highly difficult to protect and safeguard our devices Hence we have proposed this project in such away to get our devices back even if it gets stolen.

Existing system with limitations:

In the existing phones we only have the facility where the location of the device is tracked and is sent back to the user.

In such cases if the user has lost his phone and the person who has taken the device changes the sim and replaces it with another sim then the tracking of location will be of no use since the sim has been replaced with another sim . and even if ther is a provision of sending the location of the device to another android phone ,the information is not enough to find out the location of the device.

This application combines both the details that is the sim and the location details and sends it in a message to the predefined number making the tracking of the device an easy  task.

Proposed system with features:

In our application “mobile theft monitoring”  gives both the sim details as well as the location details of the device which has been stolen.

As soon as the user removes the sim and replaces it with another sim the GPS tracks the location of the device and sends it in the form of a message to the predefined number which has been set by the owner of the phone.

Additionally this application takes all the sim details such as phone number, sim serial number and the imsi number and sends these details as a message to the predefined number .
