Ad Network Detector - Tells me what apps I had to delete to keep them from installing shortcuts on my desktop.
It also gives you a good idea about what apps report back.
For example I have 1 that will put ads in my notification bar. It is not doing it right now but if it started I would run this app and uninstall it.

I use AirPush Detector (similar to what @caffeine_dude mentioned - it detects apps that use the AirPush software, which puts ads on your notification bar) and Lookout Mobile Security free.

I use Gotya Face Trap. If someone enters the wrong unlock code it takes their picture and emails it to you along with their GPS coordinates. It also has a number of commands you can activate by texting your phone. GREAT app!

At the moment, only Lookout (free).

I'm curious to see what all people mention as this thread grows. I've already got plans to check out a number of things mentioned above.

Keepass tied to Dropbox to sync passwords from my desktop(s).
Also the obligatory ad blocking software added to a custom ROM.

Experimenting with using YubiKey (hardware & software) with lastpass as a 2nd factor authentication method.

@rhmurphy: AirPush Detector was one I have installed but forgot to mention.

@baqui63: Same here. I am making a list of the programs I will be trying.

surprisingly unmentioned....GPS Locator, Ring to Find, Remote Lock and Wipe all in "Where's My Droid?"

@jnissel: Right on! AirPush sucks and I will not keep any app that uses it. Period.

Cerberus. I got it for free a while back but I think it's only around $15 and you can manage 5 mobile devices on it. Tracking, video/audio/photo capture, remote lock/wipe, alarm sound with or without message, SMS/phone log, screen shot... probably more I can't think of off the top of my head. You can hide it from the app drawer so it doesn't show up, and set it to email you a photo after X number of incorrect password attempts.
