Cerberus

Shared publicly  - 
 
We just published version 3.2 of Cerberus! Here is what's new:

By popular demand, we added a new "Block Status bar" option: enabling it will prevent the status bar to be pulled down in the lock screen. This is useful for devices with Lollipop, since a thief would not be able to modify the quick settings and disconnect the phone from the internet or disable location services, for instance.

We also added dual-SIM support for devices with Android 5.1, since Google introduced official API for dual-SIM in that Android version. Both SIM cards will be protected by the "SIM checker" feature, and you will see the details of each SIM card with the "Get device info" command from the website. BTW, there is an Android OS bug that breaks our alerts if no SIM card is present into the phone (https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=161905), hopefully Google will fix it in the next update.

There is a new "Bluetooth" condition in AutoTask, so you can create more useful rules, and some performance improvements and small bugfixes.

As usual, you can download the new version from the Play Store or from our website.

Cerberus 3.1 is out! Here are the new features:

Android Wear support
Open the app and go to the "Wearable device" section. As you can see in the attached screenshot, these are the available functionalities:
- Loss prevention: if you forget your phone, your smartwatch will vibrate and display a notification as soon as it disconnects from the phone
- Find device: misplaced the phone and the smartwatch is still connected to it? Say "Start find device" or select the option from the apps on the smartwatch, and your phone will start a loud alarm, so you can find it
- You can also start emergency mode or any rule that you set in AutoTask directly directly from the smartwatch

The "Protect device admin" option is now available also on Android 5.x (Lollipop), so a thief would not be able to disable Cerberus from the Device Administrators.

There are several bug fixes and improvements too. You can download Cerberus 3.1 from the Play Store or from our website.

A new beta version (3.0beta2) is available for download. Changelog:
- Some small bugfixes, including a workaround for the issue with wrong unlock attempts on Lollipop (Cerberus will take a picture after each wrong unlock attempt, regardless of how you set the app - we guess Google will fix the bug in Android 5.1 anyway)
- Navigation drawer improvements, to respect Material Design guidelines
- New commands on the test web dashboard (www.cerberusapp.com/test-dashboard.php) to enable/disable Wi-Fi hotspot and capture screen recording (it'll be sent via email)

It's available on the Play Store for people who have subscribed to the beta program (https://plus.google.com/111441929456451548230/posts/R7DRKrtpZ6z) and from the same download links as version 3.0beta.

Thanks to all the testers, the final 3.0 version is almost ready for prime time!

Cerberus 3.0beta

We are glad to announce a new version of Cerberus! It is a big update with a lot of new features, so we are releasing it through our beta channel for all of you that want to try it and give some feedback, then the final 3.0 update will be published in a couple of weeks.

New app features:
- Update to Material Design
- "Block Power Menu" option in the app settings, to prevent a thief from turning off the device from the lock screen
- "Protect device admin" option, to require username/password to remove Cerberus from Device Administrators
- "Prevent USB debugging" option (only for system app installs), to disable USB debugging and make more difficult for an experienced thief to delete Cerberus

New remote commands/options:
( to access these commands, after you log into the website go here: https://www.cerberusapp.com/test-dashboard.php )
- Enable/disable bluetooth
- "Persistent" option in the "Display message" command, to show a message that is always displayed in the center of the screen
- "Get installed apps" command, to retrieve a list of apps installed on the device, with their package names
- "Change app settings" command, to modify the app configuration remotely
- "Backup data" command, to make a backup of your SMS/MMS, call log, contacts, photos and videos to your Google Drive or Dropbox account - you have to connect GDrive/Dropbox beforehand in the app settings
- "Start shell" command, to open a remote shell (SSH-like) to your device
- "Start application/service / Send broadcast" to start an Activity, Service or send a Broadcast to the device

AutoTask
This feature, that you can find in a new section of the app settings, provides you a completely new way to set automatic alerts and actions. You can create your own rules with an Event-Condition-Action structure:
- Event is the signal that triggers the rule, for instance a wrong unlock code being entered, exiting or entering a geofence, battery level becoming low and many more possible events
- Condition is an additional requirement (optional) for the action to be carried out
- Action can be one or more Cerberus commands

With AutoTask you can make Cerberus do things such as email you the location when the battery is almost dying, send a SMS if the device moves, start the alarm if the device exits a geofence, factory reset the device after 5 consecutive wrong unlock attempts, and so on. The only limit is your imagination :-)

Known issues
There are 3 known issues, all of them are limited to Android 5.0 (Lollipop):

- "Protect device admin" does not work, the login screen appears 5 seconds after you press to disable device administration. That is the intended behavior according to Google security policies, but there was a bug that let us bypass the five seconds delay. The bug has been fixed in Lollipop, we'll see if we can find any other way to circumvent that.

- No picture taken on wrong unlock code entered. We can't do anything to fix this, it's a bug in the Android OS: https://code.google.com/p/android-developer-preview/issues/detail?id=1082

- The "Unlock" command does not make the lock screen disappear. As above, it's a bug in Android: https://code.google.com/p/android-developer-preview/issues/detail?id=1765 . Anyway you can enter any PIN code to unlock the phone, after you send a "Unlock" command.

If you experience any other issues, bugs or crashes, please let us know. Thanks!

Anyone from Vegas who might be able to help +Ritesh S.  get back his phone? Take a look here, there is also a reward: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/cerberus-support-forum/hpRtBujBLV0
I have cerberus installed on my phone as system application and I'm able to track its whereabouts everyday since 3 months. But I am unable to receive any help in Las Vegas. It would be the biggest victory here for Cerberus if somehow someone can find and ship me my phone.

Cerberus 3.0 is out!

The 3.0 update is available on the Play Store and on the Download page of our website. It has all the new features and options described in the post on version 3.0beta (https://plus.google.com/+CerberusappAndroid/posts/212E3szqNCB) and some more:
- Commands to enable/disable the Wi-Fi hotspot remotely
- A "Capture screen recording" command, to record up to 30 seconds of what is displayed on screen and send the video to your email

Regarding the "Known issues" paragraph of the 3.0beta post, we decided to remove the "Protect device admin" option in Lollipop, since unfortunately we couldn't find a way to make it work. Also, in Lollipop Cerberus will take a picture at each wrong unlock attempt, to circumvent the bug in the Android OS.

Version 3.0 is compatible with Android 4.0+, sorry but it won't work if your device has Android 2.3.
Also devices with Android 4.4 that use the experimental ART runtime included in KitKat are not supported, we apologize but version 3.0 works only with the Dalvik runtime in KitKat, while on Lollipop it works fine with the stable ART runtime.

Due to all these new features, the price for a lifetime license will increase to 4.99 EUR, but only for new users. If you haven't already purchased a license, we suggest you to do it now, because this is the last day to buy a license for 2.99 EUR from the Play Store!

Come on guys, first I lost recording audio and video feature plus I lost checking sms and calls but it was just ok because I still had the take picture feature but now even that was lost. I thought that feature could never be lost as I've read here. Will this app be useless sometime soon for me? You guys were the best one so far, come on, what can I do to get my features back?

Cerberus 3.0beta4 is available from the usual download channels (Play Store and direct download links).

We kindly ask you to test photo capture (send a "Take picture" command from the website, checking "Take picture immediately"), since we made a few changes in the code and we'd like to be sure they did not break anything on any device model.

Thanks for the feedback!

you have to do something about connection, it is very hard to get our other devices connected even they are connected to internet and is there any way to get device connected who don't have active internet?

Sorry but photo capture on wrong unlock code does not work on Android 5.0 (Lollipop). This is a bug of the Android OS (see here: https://code.google.com/p/android-developer-preview/issues/detail?id=1082 ), so unfortunately we can't do anything on our side to fix it. Let's hope Google fixes the bug quickly ;-)

For Galaxy S5 owners: the latest software update from Samsung has a bug, apps that use the "Device Administration" feature are not notified when a wrong unlock attempt has been done.
For techies, the onPasswordFailed method (http://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/admin/DeviceAdminReceiver.html#onPasswordFailed(android.content.Context, android.content.Intent)) is not called anymore after the update.

Unfortunately this means that Cerberus will not send the photo when a wrong unlock PIN/password/pattern/fingerprint is entered. We contacted Samsung support and they said they will look into it, sorry but we can not do anything on our end. We hope they will fix the bug and publish a new update for the S5.
