In this system we have proposed to implement the technique to improve antitheft for android based mobile phones by using various services like MMS over the SMS. Today�s most popular android operating system is contains many scenarios that already been proposed that are related to anti-theft also many applications are available onto play store but these application are not so useful to find the thief e.g. GPS tracking for the devices like smart phones, tablets and phablets. We can use new technology likes Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), which enhances the present scenario. This scenario is totally dependent on the hardware of your smart phone device that is camera (front or rear) also support for multimedia messages. First, we just need to install this software then, it work�s in the background, stores the current SIM number in a variable and keeps continuously checking for SIM change, whenever SIM gets changed from device, it will takes snapshots, record a video in the background with the use of camera of device and also records surrounding audio i.e., without taking user permission and then it will send an MMS to an alternate mobile number and an email id, which was provided during installation for authorized user�s registration. The most benefit of this application is very easy to configure and keeps running in the background without interrupting the user. To some extent it helps the authorized user to identify and find the thief.
