Familia Protects You


The application that will protect you, your family and friends


Welcome to Familia!

The application that will protect you, your family and friends.

With Familia you can locate your lost or stolen device from another mobile phone. You will be able to locate your family and friends locations (in future versions). Track your stolen or lost phone!
Free anti theft solution for your Android. When you wonder if you can ever find your phone, this is the app for you!


You Lost it. We track it. You find it!

With Familia you can track your phone from anywhere, with a simple text messaged code word. Familia can get your phone GPS coordinates with a link to Google maps, and return it back to the phone you used to SMS Familia. Familia can turn the ringer volume up and make your phone ring (future versions), so if you're close enough to your lost phone you can hear the ringer.
