We all know how our mobile phone insurance is barely worth the paper it is written on and how big a target smartphones are in the eyes of a pickpocket? Well, a new tool has come to light that could make finding the phone thief easier than ever before.

TrustGo is a security app for mobiles and today it introduced a new feature. If somebody puts the wrong passcode into a handset to unlock it three times, the camera will go off and take a mugshot of the mug trying to mug you off.
This snap will then be sent to the email address registered with the app, giving you a full face photo of whoever was snatching your pride and joy.
Ok, it will then be up to you to get the Police to pay attention, but no doubt a picture of the perp will help you on your way.
Of course, we hope you aren't put into the situation where you need to use this app but, if you are, happy snapping!
