I'm looking for some good antivirus/antitheft app.

Esp. so that the app won't be removed on factory reset and things like wipe sd card etc.

I use Avast.

The other day I changed the sim card in my phone (because I had changed network) and an alarm started going off with a voice saying the phone had been stolen. I also got a text message saying my phone had been stolen, with a link to a map showing the location where the sim card had been changed.

Use the proper space for this kind of post. This is an Apps & Games only forum.

I've used Cerberus on pretty much every android I've used so far, even tablets. Served me well so far as can remotely lock, wipe, locate and take photos from the front camera on the device and lots of other things that makes it a really good security app too
