Avast is battery drain because of the fact that it has lot of components such as antivirus, firewall, real time protection etc. But we need only antitheft. And avast is best for the purpose because it makes difficult for the thieves that even they uninstall the app, they will be tracked !!!
Avast is doing this by installing antitheft separately and in a disguised name.This really helps us.
So we can install avast Mobile security and antitheft. You also need to complete all the configurations including registering in the site.
Once everything is set up, you can uninstall Avast !!!
Even then the antitheft won't be deleted and no one would know that you ever installed Avast.
And that's not it, the app would be running in background always, but it will use very minimal battery. So you got your antitheft, yet no battery draining !! Isn't that great ?
Don't forget to hit Thanks Button if someone helps you...
