Device anti-theft

Device anti-theft functionality is a smartphone feature that secures your device against anyone else trying to use or sell your smartphone without the proper credentials. The anti-theft software will be included with some existing and new models of smartphones manufactured after July 2015.

 

Anti-theft functionality

Anti-theft functionality helps you keep your device secure, even if it is in the wrong hands, and will increase your chances of getting it back.

 

When using the anti-theft software you can:

  • Locate your phone from any computer
  • Lock and restrict access to your phone
  • Wipe sensitive data from your phone
  • Make your phone emit a loud sound so you can find it (FYI it's probably in the couch)
  • Require a password to use any reset options

 

 

Phone specific software

Anti-theft software and features vary depending on the your phone's platform or manufacturer. For more specific information and available features, see:
