The accretion of mobile theft these days causes peril to people. Though we have facilities to recover, we need an eminent and rapid mode to recover the lost entity. To abrogate the larceny of mobiles, we have introduced a concept of integrating mobile phones with fingerprint reader which serves as a solution to this augmenting problem. Along with mobile tracking facility, we also need information security. Thus to overcome these challenges we have developed BATS. The basis of BATS is the Fingerprint Reader integrated with other mobile applications in Smart phones and PDAs. The outcome is the prevention of mobile theft and high information security When the Fingerprint reader senses the illegitimate fingerprint through image processing, it immediately sends alert to the person whose contact number has been registered in the mobile security name field, at regular intervals. The alert contains the information of time and place the mobile has been used. This is done with such celerity that the Smart phones and PDAs can be tracked in no time. The information ceded is enough to recover the stolen article. Thus, the mobile can be recovered, thereby depleting mobile theft and also increasing information security in a rapid and profitable way.
