Theft Alarm and Recovery Application


What does TARA stand for?

TARA is short for Theft Alarm and Recovery Application. It also stands for every smartphone user out there, against all the thieves and menaces!

What makes TARA different from all the other kill switch apps?

TARA is a TelCo Application Service Provier that works without internet, data, load, or charges to your phone bill!

What can TARA do to protect me and my phone?

With TARA, you can use several features to protect yourself, your phone, and your data, such as the Red Button, Sidekick, and Back-up & Restore.

What is Red Button?

Red Button is your go-to SOS button designed to protect you. Activate the Red Button to enable the floater (which works even when your phone is locked), and hold it for 3-4 seconds to send an SOS message, with an exact time and location, to your emergency contact.

What is Sidekick?

Sidekick is an external device that lets you pair it with your phone, and it will notify you when your phone is taken too far away from you. Currently it is still under development.

What is Back-up & Restore?

This feature lets you back-up your contacts which you can restore later on, even on a different phone. You can also upgrade this feature to let you back-up photos, videos, and more files from your phone.
