You need a cheap solution to supervise your home, a baby monitor or a mini live streaming setup you don’t have to pay a lot for? You can now try WiFi Camera on your smartphone. This free app can be found on the Google Play Store and all you need for it to work is a compatible phone and a router.
This app allows your Android phone to become a WiFi-based IP camera. There is no difficult setup to go through, all you have to do is download and install the app on the phone you want to use as a camera, then you leave it wherever you want or you simply use it. You will be able to see and hear the phone’s video and audio feed on your PC or tablet if they are on the same network or on the same internet provider feed.
In order to get live feed from your phone to the PC, you will need to get the phone IP and you can log into the router network and the phone’s live feed. This will help you supervise your home while you are away for example, and you wouldn’t have to spend that much money on a surveillance camera. It works very well as a baby monitor as well; you can spend time down stairs while you can check up on your baby via WiFi feed. It can also work as a secret camera you can use to check up on other members of the household if you are suspicious of any of them or of the babysitter for example. If you do leave your phone act as a camera for a longer time, you will have to keep your phone plugged to an energy source.
WiFi Camera supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome and you don’t have to install any software to make it work. If you are intrigued by the device and want to give it a second look, you can access it on the Store via the widget below:
Amazon is attempting to change itself from within and it has apparently started with the Appstore. Enter Amazon Underground. The free App of the Day deal is gone, folks. This little deal event is being replaced with the Underground, where over 10,000 apps and games will be available for free.
What does Amazon Underground mean?
This change will reflect on sales and overall popularity as Amazon is giving away paid apps and games with in-app purchases for free. Developers will be reimbursed based on actual app usage meaning if you use an app more, they will get more money. It’s pretty much a Kindle Unlimited deal, without any extra charges.
The games and apps included in this new program are not just leftovers but hot apps and tools that would drain your wallet on Google Play Store. Now they will be completely free to Underground users. All the apps that are labeled Underground “actually free” will be completely free, in-app purchases and all. Apps without the “actually free” label may present standard IAP.
In order to get this new feature all you have to do is open Amazon Shopping or the Appstore on your device and it should appear as a banner on top prompting you for an installation (You can manually install here). The Shopping app is going to be replaced by the Amazon Underground one and the Appstore one will still include cross-app links.
You like Cerberus and its security perks mainly because you can get them for free if you’re not up to paying for it? Well, think again, because it seems that the free license system for the app is going away, for good this time. It is a well-known fact that the guys behind this security app let people get free lifetime licenses every now and then, but it appears that “lifetime” is not what it used to be. These free versions will go out in a couple of days.
You want to keep your Cerberus software running? Give them €4.99 for a lifetime license. Users who reached out to the devs got a slap-back response saying that the free licensing was not feasible because of the costs involved. Below you can see the official response:
“We are sorry but we could not make those licenses last for a lifetime. We hope Cerberus helped you recover a lost or stolen device during these years, and that you will consider buying a license. “
Cerberus users will be able to get their license to work for three years after they started and they will be noted via email when their license is about to expire.
Before the Android Device Manager came into people’s lives and saved Android devices, Cerberus was one of the few options to keep your device safe. Now, Google’s response does pretty much everything regular users need. It’s not that LSDroid are wrong in their decision, but they could have given every free-for-a-lifetime license user a heads-up before pulling the plug.
Cerberus security app alternatives
If regular security measures from Google are not enough for you and you are already disappointed in Cerberus, you can go ahead and try Prey, another security solution for your media handsets, including smartphones, laptops and tablets. This is actually an all-in-one security solution for handheld devices. It lets users track their devices and it sends reports about their devices in real time. This little piece of software helps users find their stolen devices and get them back too!
With Prey, you can log into your account from any web browser and you can remote-control your device, even when it is stolen. You can wipe your information, sound an alarm and lock the screen and send messages remotely.
Prey has a free version and two paid versions, of course, but the regular free version lets you find your device location, lets you get reports on its activity and location and it lets you sound an alarm, lock it and send messages from it wherever it is. It lets you connect to up to three different mobile devices that you can keep safe. The personal and home plan include support for up to 10 devices and additional features such as deleting passwords and other sensitive data and they even let you wipe your device remotely.
Avast Mobile Security
Another great alternative to Cerberus app is Avast Mobile Security. This anti-virus service also protects your device against theft in addition to protecting your device from infected files, malware, spyware, privacy phishing,or malicious viruses. You get most of the anti-virus and anti-theft features for free, but in order to get more devices locked to the same account you can agree to a $1.99 monthly plan or a yearly $14.99 fee.
The free Avast version gets you an Antivirus Engine, Privacy report &apps manager, Web shield, Network Meter and Firewall and App Locking. You also get the anti-theft features such as locating your phone remotely via GPS tracker, sending SMS messages remotely or locking your device, turning the siren on or wiping memory to keep your data safe. Additionally, you can also get a notification for a SIM card change.
The paid Avast Mobile Security version gives you options such as unlimited app locking, ad detector, a password check that locks your device after three failed attempts to unlock. You also get Geo-Fencing, which is a feature that allows you to set a safe perimeter for your device and if it is taken out of that perimeter it will unleash a siren and send its location to your account (if the phone is taken away from the set perimeter, the actions you previously set will activate). Another paid feature is the remote SMS system, the remote data recovery and the remote identification where you can take a photo or video of the thief when he tries to unlock it.
The third app that you can replace Cerberus with is Lookout. It has a personal version and a company version you can try, so you have many options to choose from there. The personal Lookout version has features like safe browsing, predictive security and a privacy advisor that lets you see which sites can access your personal data and it makes sure nothing gets leaked.
You also get the theft protection feature that assures your device with theft alerts, a signal flare (record the phone location when the battery gets low to help you find it when it goes out of power), locate and scream (mapping the location of your phone when it goes missing and starting an alarm, even on silent mode) and lock and wipe. The free version gets you predictive security, locating services, the scream and signal flare feature, contact backup and download and transfer data services. The paid version gets you additional features you can try for free for two weeks.
Lookout has a security app version directed at companies too and it has a mobile threat protection feature that keeps data safe predicting, detecting and remediating mobile threats before they can impact your company. It also enables secure BYOD programs with security solutions, detects compromised OS (rooted or jailbroken devices) and surveillanceware, trojans or data leakers.
