Abstract: With passage in technical and scientific knowledge, the execution and accomplishment of mobile devices is increasing. The usage of smartphones is becoming generous now a days. Since the performance and use of these smart devices is expanding to a larger extent because of their capability to reserve a vast amount of data varying from a simple multimedia file such as images, videos to those important information regarding contacts, messages etc. These smart devices are sometimes also used to store more complex information such as those important and sensitive details regarding bank accounts, passwords, ATM pins etc. Since all these information can lead to various kinds of thefts. Therefore protecting this information from unwanted theft of mobile smart devices and tracking the stolen device is a must. This paper presents an approach to an application that will help to protect the valuable data of the owner and helps to track the device when it is stolen by any unwanted means. This application will use the internal camera of the smartphones that will start capturing the activity when the application starts. The application will run in the background and will not be available in android launcher so that the one who has stolen the device will never get to know that he has been captured along with his location.
