All bugs have been fixed. Trap a thief and get your iPhone back.
Password Trap can track your stolen iPhone / iPod touch. If your iPhone is stolen and the thief tries to go through your device, he will find this icon saying Passwords staring at him. If he means evil (most of them are after your identity and passwords), he will surely click on the icon to check out your passwords. Once in, he will see a list of passwords, bank account and personal information scrolling on his screen. He does not know that in the background, Password Trap is detecting the exact device location and mailing you the details. Soon you will get an email with the location details of the device. Just click on the direct Google maps link to zoom into the location where the thief is using it.
As the passwords scroll (to keep him busy as the app tries to get more accurate location), you get a first estimate location by email and then more and more accurate emails. After we are done, the thief will see a "Database sync error: Try after 30 minutes" message. If the thief falls for it, he will try again after 30 minutes !
EMAIL SERVER: This app uses a very reliable external server. And mails are sent out immediately. No server settings are required.
The setup is simple. Just fill in the email address where the notifications need to be send and any password (for later access of the location data). Initially the app is in Owner Mode. After setup, go to the iPhone / iPod touch Settings (the global Settings from the device home page) and scroll to the Passwords app's settings and set Owner Mode to OFF. And there you go, the Password Trap is all set to track your stolen device.
1) IMMEDIATE FIRST EMAIL: The sends the first mail right away so that you have a fair idea (just in case, the thief stops the app soon). Please do not submit a negative review based on that. As the app stays on, it tracks more accurately and sends you emails with more exact location. Detection may vary with places.
2) ASKING FOR LOCATION PERMISSION: PLEASE read the instructions on the app during setup. It mentions clearly how you need to get in and out of the app twice to get rid of the default iPhone behavior where it asks for permission. If you follow the instructions, it will not ask for permission again. It is unfortunate that a few reviewer were impatient and did not follow what the app asks you to follow.

A Stolen iPhone Locator that Actually Works!
Wow. Was begining to think none of the stolen/lost iPhone finding programs worked but this one does. Setup my email and choose a password, hit save, then made sure to tell the iPhone to allow it to use my current location, exited and re-entered the program telling the iPhone to allow it to use my current location a second time (meaning it should never ask again). Then exited and re-entered again, this time the now fully authorized program did exactly what it said it would. Received 5 emails in a matter of two minutes with the program open, the first had 128 yards accuracy, the second had 47 and the last three all had it down to 34 yards. Clicked the link and the marker was right in my own yard. And my house is in an area with very limited cell service and I was inside where I usually get fairly poor GPS signals.
This APP works perfectly!!!
I honestly had my doubts, but I'm absolutely shocked on how fantastic this application works! This app showed the exact room my iPhone was in and I'd say within approximately 6-10 feet. Here's a hint: WIFI being enabled and connected will give you a more precise location. If the thief decides to connect your iPhone to his home network and opens this application, then he's really screwed!! You will have the iPhones exact location sent to your email in less than a minute. Listen people, this app is a MUST HAVE!! You could lose your iPhone or have it stolen and only then will you want to shoot yourself in the foot for not getting this app!
Not bad... Only off by 1 or 2 houses but better than nothing!
So I was sceptical but figured it was worth a shot for a buck. I tested it out and told it twice to allow it to use my location.. (You have to run it twice people!!! Then it will stop asking!)
The first time it said it was two houses over but the right side of the street. Then on the second try it said it might be next door.
That may not be acurate enough for some people but I would rather have some idea of where to start looking than not. I will gladly do some doorbell ringing and ask questions (while my friends dial the phone to see if we hear it from the door!)
Will this ever work when it's really an emergency? I don't know but it's better than having no hope at all!
I think if you are really worried you should install this one AND "Private I" (the other app just like this). Then you have even more chances of getting your phone back.
Oh.. one more thing.. I went ahead and stuck this app in the bottom row so it will be there no matter what screen they look at.. Maybe this will increse the odds of someone opening it.. ???
