    Exclamation How to prevent factory reset.

    I've found that it is very easy for someone to just shut your phone off then boot it into recovery to factory reset it, and it doesn't ask for a password to factory reset. Meaning if someone steals your phone.. they can just factory reset it. Now my question is does anyone know of a way to prevent this?
    I have a rooted LG G2. No custom roms.

    No. But there are safeguards to put into place. Cerberus can survive a reset.
