Anti-theft exclusive unlock password


Recommended Posts

Hello.


I have Kaspersky Internet Security installed in two Android devices, one at version 8.1.0 and other at version 9. The Anti-theft feature works fine on them, but I want to know if it is possible to use a exclusive password for unlocking the anti-theft screen lock from using the same password I use at the standard phone screen lock.


If it is not, I suggest implemeting this feature, because if someone knows my phone password, the anti-theft lock won't stop them.


Thanks.

Hello,

Welcome.

And where is the problem? Simply add your password for example same like your phone password (nobody know it if you have it only for yourself) 🙂

or simply create new unique password.

Well, consider an extreme situation where a thief takes my phone and forces me to say my password. The thief now has full access to my phone. If the anti-theft feature has a different password for unlocking the phone after I remotely block it using My Kaspersky, the thief won't be able to unlock the phone using the password I gave to they. And, if the anti-thief uses the same password, the thief will simply use the password taken from me to unlock the phone again. Know what I mean?

 

My question is if it's possible to configure the anti-theft feature with a different password to unlock the phone for when I block it with My Kaspersky. If it ain't, no problem at all.

 

Thanks.

If thief force you say password - you say whatever password 🙂 also 22 digits 🙂 in extreme situations 🙂

So answer on your question is : YES you can set whatever password you want.

Hello,

I think you might turn on the two-factor authentication mechanism for your Kaspersky account using microsoft authenticator in account security settings.

Regards.
