Re: pass to shut down . possible?

Hi @elkorne, welcome to our community!

There is no such setting by default in the device but there may be third party applications available in the Google Play store that adds such an option.

I haven't really thought about it until you mentioned it and it would really add an extra layer of security as the device can't be tracked when it's not turned on, at least not with the Google service called Find My Device.

I will definitely forward the suggestion internally as user feedback and let me know if you are able to find an application or service that can do this, as I'm quite interested in this myself! Slightly smiling Face

Thanks again and have a great Monday!

Hi again @elkorne!

I'll let you know if I hear anything, but I can't make any promises that this will be added.

I will keep an eye out as well for a third party application and let you know if I find one! Slightly smiling Face

Have a great Monday!
