f you've never heard of Theft Aware, then you're missing out on one of the best anti-loss/theft solutions available for Android. It embeds itself deep into root, hides itself from the app tray, utilizes device administration privileges to the fullest, and basically makes itself undetectable, unremovable, indestructible, and unstoppable. Like I said, it's probably the most solid security app that we've ever seen.

In a blog post today, the makers of Theft Aware, ITAgents, announced that it has been been purchased by popular antivirus software company Avast. Upon first hearing the news, I was extremely worried about Theft Aware's future (we all know what happened to Wave Secure after it was bought my McAfee :S) but after hearing some reassuring words from the one of the devs of the Theft Aware project, I feel much more at ease.
