How to Set Up Anti Theft on Your Smart­phone

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

Head on over to the Ad­vanced tab. In­side, se­lect "SATA Con­fig­u­ra­tion," fol­lowed by "SATA Mode Se­lec­tion", and then "RAID". You should then be re­turned to the SATA Con­fig­u­ra­tion menu, and with the "SATA Mode Se­lec­tion" value set to ‘RAID’. be sure to save the cur­rent BIOS con­fig­u­ra­tion be­fore ex­it­ing the util­ity. This can usu­ally be achieved by press­ing the F10 but­ton.

1. Set­ting up the Anti-Theft func­tion on your smart­phone or tablet is easy with Kasper­sky Se­cu­rity for Mo­bile, which of­fers fea­tures such as de­vice lock­ing and lo­ca­tion track­ing built-in. Al­though the app tog­gles most of the func­tions upon in­stal­la­tion, you can still tweak the set­tings in An­tiTheft for bet­ter per­son­al­iza­tion. To be­gin, se­lect the Anti-Theft drop­down from the main menu.

2. The first fea­ture is De­vice Lock, which can pro­tect your data when your de­vice is stolen or lost. With this fea­ture, you can re­motely ac­cess the de­vice via Kasper­sky Se­cu­rity Cen­ter to re­motely lock it, so as to im­me­di­ately pro­tect your data and de­vice from unau­tho­rized ac­cess.

3. De­vice Lock is en­abled by de­fault, but users can in­put a text mes­sage in this menu that will be dis­played on the screen when the lock is en­abled. This is use­ful for the per­son in pos­ses­sion of your de­vice to get in touch with you, fa­cil­i­tat­ing its re­turn.

4. The sec­ond fea­ture is Data Wipe, which al­lows you to re­motely wipe se­lected or all data from your de­vice should it get lost or stolen. This is use­ful for busi­nesses or users with sen­si­tive and pri­vate data. Users can use Kasper­sky Se­cu­rity Cen­ter to ac­cess this func­tion.

5. Like De­vice Lock, Data Wipe is en­abled by de­fault, al­though users can choose be­tween two op­tions, which is to delete only per­sonal data on a mem­ory card or all data on the de­vice, restor­ing it to its fac­tory de­faults. You may choose which­ever op­tion that suits you best or even dis­able the func­tion if nec­es­sary.

6. Next is SIM Watch, a nifty lit­tle fea­ture that can mon­i­tor the de­vice for any changes to the SIM card. When a SIM card is re­placed, the de­vice can send a mes­sage to users in­form­ing them of the new num­ber, so that they can get in touch with the per­son in cur­rent pos­ses­sion of the de­vice.

7. SIM Watch isn’t en­abled, so you will have to tog­gle the check­box to un­lock its fea­tures, which al­lows the send­ing of no­ti­fi­ca­tions to an al­ter­nate phone num­ber or email ad­dress, as well as the op­tion to au­to­mat­i­cally lock the de­vice upon a change of SIM card.

8. Se­lect the empty phone num­ber field to in­put a sec­ondary phone num­ber that will re­ceive an SMS no­ti­fi­ca­tion when the SIM card is re­placed. The email ini­tially used to set up the phone is al­ready in SIM Watch, al­though you can change the ad­dress if nec­es­sary.

9. Last but not least is Lo­cate, which can pro­vide you with the co­or­di­nates of your de­vice, so you will be able to pin­point its lo­ca­tion. This fea­ture can be ac­cessed by the sys­tem ad­min­is­tra­tor via the Kasper­sky Se­cu­rity Cen­ter.

10. By de­fault, Lo­cate is al­ready en­abled, so users can get the co­or­di­nates di­rectly in the email that was reg­is­tered dur­ing the in­stal­la­tion process.
