The introduction of Android Mobile phones has bought a new revolution in the mobile phone market and almost everyone might have experienced misplacing or losing their mobile phones . Hence it is necessary to develop an application in all smart phones to prevent the mobile phone theft . This paper describes a tracking application called AALTm (An Android Application to Locate and Track Mobile phones) which is embedded with a lot of features such as location tracking , SIM card detection, call monitoring, profile changing, sending the images to the predefined email address and deleting the proj ect specific incoming and outgoing messages . These features are quite different from the existing tracker applications which would be helpful in tracing the lost mobile .
