Cerberus Anti-Theft is the type of app that users install for peace of mind. The service offers the ability to track a device’s location, record audio through its microphone, lock it, or wipe it remotely in the chance that it falls into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, this line of defense could be a person’s worse nightmare if their account were compromised. That’s why it was no small deal when Cerberus recently sent out this email to some of its users, alerting them that a number of usernames and passwords were stolen in a recent data breach.
