    Default What is a good security set up for this phone ?

    I don't have any security set up on this phone.
    Have wondered what I would do if it were stolen, or if I were to lose it.
    I know that I would immediately notify Sprint, and change my google password.
    That's the extent of my security.

    Have read about systems that help you locate the phone, disable the phone, etc.,
    but still haven't figured them out or applied them to the phone.

    What is a good security set up for this phone ?

    Thanks

    Use some sort of a lock system other than face unlock. I also like prey antitheft (search for it in the play store.)

    I just got the Kaspersky security app. A lil pricey at around 15 bucks but I like the features. You can text codes to lock, wipe all data, and locate your phone from any other device if lost or stolen. If the thief tries to change the sim card in my stolen phone, it will send an email to me showing me the new number the person is using on my phone that they stole. It also has a few other cool security features I like as well. If you want to go with a free one, AVG antivirus is also niiice. I used to use that one. You can go online and wipe data, lock, locate or send a shout noise to your phone to find it if the person tries to silence it.

    My GS3 sleeps in the bed and my girlfriend sleeps on the couch.

    You can use Lookout. It's free and has a phone locater and virus scanner. It probably has new stuff, but I haven't used it in a year or so.

    There is an app called Cerberus that is in the Play store. If your phone is lost or stolen it will actually take a picture or video at your command. You can access everything from the web.

    If you have insurance, there's also "The Protection App" which allows you to locate your phone on a map, make it scream, wipe (I believe), among other things. It's free.

    What I like about prey is that it's cross platform compatible. Android, ios, mac, pc, Linux, you name it.

    Use Lookout combined with a lengthy password. Also if your a real security freak you can encrypt your phone and memory card storage as well by going storage in the settings menu.
