Paid Cerberus 'lifetime' licenses are expiring, customers are mad (Update: Complaints deleted from forum)

Paid Cerberus 'lifetime' licenses are expiring, customers are mad (Update: Complaints deleted from forum)

Four years after Cerberus made headlines when it invalidated free lifetime licenses, the device security app is back in the spotlight for the same questionable business practices. This time, it has begun to revoke paid lifetime licenses, partly without informing customers beforehand.

[Update: Official Statement] Many Cerberus Free 'Lifetime' Licenses Are Expiring In A Few Days Because Developers Gotta Eat

[Update: Official Statement] Many Cerberus Free 'Lifetime' Licenses Are Expiring In A Few Days Because Developers Gotta Eat

Cerberus is one of the more full-featured device security apps available on Android. It has more features than Android Device Manager, and more importantly it existed years before Google's solution. The developer has occasionally offered free lifetime licenses for the app, but now users are seeing that their "lifetime" licenses are set to expire in a few days. What gives?

Hands-on with Taskito, a to-do app that does things a little differently

Hands-on with Taskito, a to-do app that does things a little differently

If you search the Play Store for to-do apps, there's an endless sea of results, and many offers have similar approaches to task management: Most apps essentially let you create a checklist of tasks. Often, they're sorted by time or priority, and many apps are capable of integrating with your calendar, but all in all, a lot of the services are similar. The relatively fresh 2019 indie app Taskito is going for a different approach that reminds me of a supercharged version of the agenda view in Google Calendar.

Hands on with WeatherPro, a promising Dark Sky alternative

Hands on with WeatherPro, a promising Dark Sky alternative

WeatherPro has been around on Android for more than ten years and has gone through changes on both the visual and the monetary front — the subscription-based app used to be a paid product back in 2018 before the company behind it joined forces with another one. Now, the app has received a comprehensive redesign, giving it a rethought bottom bar interface and a customizable home screen. That's reason enough for us to go hands-on with the app, mainly because we wanted to see if it can fill the vacuum left by Dark Sky's demise.

Logitech’s voice-controlled Harmony Express is being discontinued, will stop working in September

Logitech’s voice-controlled Harmony Express is being discontinued, will stop working in September

Logitech took a risk when it launched the Harmony Express, a new take on age-old problems surrounding universal remotes. Instead of plastering the device with every button you could possibly need, the Express' primary input is its microphone, powered by Amazon Alexa. While our own Ryne Hager loved this approach in his review last year, the unique strategy apparently didn't catch on as much as the company had hoped: Logitech is discontinuing the remote on September 30, 2020, when the Express and its companion apps will stop working.

Excellent Mobile Security App Cerberus Hits 100,000 Users, Offers Free Lifetime Licenses For A Few Days To Celebrate

Excellent Mobile Security App Cerberus Hits 100,000 Users, Offers Free Lifetime Licenses For A Few Days To Celebrate

A few months ago, Liam spent some time with 17 mobile security apps, one of which was an app called Cerberus. He came away quite impressed - so impressed, in fact, that he crowned it the winner (and, as a license is just $4, it was also crowned the best for the budget-minded).

The app is always free to download and comes with a 1 week free trial, but a lifetime license is normally $4. I say normally because, as you have likely deduced from the title, the developer is offering free lifetime licenses in celebration of hitting 100,000 users.

To get the license, just download the app and register an account (it requires a username, password, and email address - nothing tricky), then fill out the form and hit Submit.

This service is included with Cerberus, so subscribers are already set as soon as the app goes live.

[Deal Alert] Security App Cerberus Is Three Years Old Today, Celebrating With Free Licenses For One Day Only (Plus A New Feature)

[Deal Alert] Security App Cerberus Is Three Years Old Today, Celebrating With Free Licenses For One Day Only (Plus A New Feature)

The Android Device Manager might get the basics taken care of, but Cerberus goes a few steps farther. It's a powerful security suite with features like SIM locking, device alarms, remote lock, remote wipe, remote picture taking, and location tracking. It would usually cost you €2.99 (about $4) for a lifetime license, but it's free for the next day in celebration of the app's third birthday.

Cerberus has robust functionality on standard devices, but it can also take advantage of root access to move to the system partition so it persists between device resets. The new feature added in v2.5 is Radar Mode, and it's pretty ingenious.
