Mobile phones can be used for various purposes like browsing internet, playing games, emailing, blogging, messaging, video streaming, search and more. Focus of this work is to use mobile phones for tracking various objects and non-living things. Like car keys can be used to unlock a car as well as to locate the car by triggering a sound from a certain distance. We are using the similar concept for locating various objects and individuals by tracking them using GPS and allowing user to find its exact location with the help of an alarm. Keep it Safe is an application and hardware device available for the Android platform. This android app will help individuals to find things quickly and easily. Through this app one can ask to trigger an alarm so that the user can easily pin point the location of lost object. It also shows the last seen of item or object so, one can easily remember and can easily find their objects.
