Lock screen not secured

Lock screen not secured

Hi guys,


1 -Let's say my phone is lost or stolen, a thief can easly turn off my phone, Then i can't locate it.

in other companies phone , if your try to turn off the phone it ask for your PIN or Fingerprint.

This can help you locate your phone if it's stolen.


2- Why we can't Lock Status Bar in Lockscreen ?

1 - This doesn't sound like a bad idea to have to enter the pin or use the fingerprint in order to turn off the phone. However, if the phone wets stolen, it's for the purpose of being used, so eventually it will turn back on pretty soon. Then you'll be able to block it remotely using the device locator.


2 - I think that it depends on your settings and maybe the theme. My status bar always appears in lock screen. Screenshot_20180924-235837.png
