SmartFuzz Case Study

Protecting Your Smartphone and Data through One App

SmartFuzz is a mobile anti-theft application that was developed to cater to the growing need to provide solutions to retrieve data in case their smartphones are lost or stolen.

The web portal is developed using CakePHP which is a well known MVC architecture framework in PHP. We have used MYSQL for backend processing with JSON based web services for the backend communication of mobile devices. We used Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian and J2ME platforms to develop the anti theft mobile apps.

The Challenge

The number of smartphones across the world is growing and so is people’s dependability on them. Once lost, stolen or damaged, individuals’ data are lost forever. To ensure that users can recover their data even if their phones never do, the minds behind SmartFuzz came up with a great idea for an app.

The customer also asked to create a web panel where critical data could be saved and then restored to a compatible device. The panel would also be used to track a stolen device in real time and prompt the mobile to create a buzz when lost.

How Infoshore Helped

Infoshore developed the SmartFuzz app for use across multiple platforms as well as an online portal for users. The app provides the following features:

  • Remote locking by sending a specific text message
  • Data tracking of all calls and messages
  • Data back up from the phone or the member’s control panel
  • SIM change notifications
  • Data wiping remotely


SmartFuzz has been downloaded more than 100,000 times from third-party websites aside from app stores. It is actively used by 95% of those who downloaded it and has effectively helped recover over a hundred stolen phones. With a high percentage of satisfied customers, SmartFuzz is quickly becoming THE app to have for securing phones and creating backup for their data.
