Anti-Theft Settings in AVG Antivirus for Android

Anti-Theft Settings in AVG Antivirus for Android Smartphone only

Camera Trap (PRO feature)
Check the box to enable this feature. After you’ve remotely locked your phone using our Anti-Theft service, Camera Trap will take a secret front-camera photo of anyone who enters your password incorrectly 3 times in a row. This photo will then be emailed to the address you’ve registered with our Anti-Theft service so you can see exactly who’s trying to get into your phone.

IMPORTANT: There are two ways Camera Trap can help you identify a potential intruder. This feature works if you’ve remotely locked your phone using our Anti-Theft service. (This can be done either via http://www.avgmobilation.com/anti-theft or via an SMS command). In addition, you can also enable Camera Trap for your Android’s standard lock screen without the need to remotely lock your phone by following these steps:
  • Open AVG AntiVirus
  • Tap the Anti-Theft tile
  • Tap Advanced Settings
  • Turn on Enhanced Protection

Note:
This PRO feature is available to AVG AntiVirus FREE users free for a 14 days. If you would like to keep this feature after your trial has ended, please upgrade to AVG AntiVirus PRO. This feature will be available to:
  • Devices with a front-facing camera
  • Devices running Android OS version 2.3.3 and higher

To use Camera Trap, you need to first register with our Anti-Theft service. The email will be sent to the address you’ve registered with the Anti-Theft service. However, depending on your phone’s data speed and connection, the email may not be sent immediately.

If you have trouble seeing the photo in your email, please make sure that you’ve allowed your email app to display pictures.

Anti-Theft Password
Tap this option to create your private password (minimum of 4 characters in length), which is needed for remotely controlling your device with text messages (SMS) and for unlocking your device if it has locked itself because someone changed your SIM card.<
To change this password, simply tap this option again and create a new one.

Advanced settings - Enhanced protection
By enabling this level of protection, “Wipe” will enable Android’s built-in “Reset to factory settings”, and “Lock” will use Android’s built-in system lock screen. Enhanced protection will also enable Camera Trap to be used with your Android’s standard lock screen, so you’ll be notified of failed password attempts even if you haven’t remotely locked your phone using our Anti-Theft service.

Once Enhanced protection is enabled, the uninstall option for the AVG AntiVirus app will be dimmed out in both Google Play and App Manager. To uninstall AVG AntiVirus, open the app and tap Help, and then Uninstall.

Device Lock
Your device will automatically lock itself if someone ever changes your SIM card. Use your Anti-Theft password to unlock your device.
