    As far as I remember when the pin is set after setting up the FPS unlock the phone can never be reset by anyone without the correct pin.
    Unless the thief has your pin (or other unlock method) the phone would be useless to them.

    Am I wrong?

    That is correct. It will ask for Google account jnfoe if the phone was factory reset without entering that information. This is called factory reset protection. You can read more about it here.

    Unfortunately though you wont be able to track the phone if it is turned off or factory reset though. But at least they won't be able to get your data.

    Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.

    That makes sense; I hope they would provide a feature for mobile data protection on lock screen in the future update.

    Is there a way to provide a feedback/feature request for future update?

    Hi all,

    I recently bought the phone. When I first power up the phone, it asks you to agree with its “Terms and Conditions”. Basically, it refers to its End User License Agreement (eula) and Privacy Policy. As I am reading through them, I notice it asks for something more than I normally see with phones from other brands. For example, by agreeing to the eula, you allow them to collect data (and any data) on your phone including contact information, text/voice message, etc. It doesn’t say this access is only limited to certain Huawei apps, but it is globally applied to any Huawei software (including EMUI) as long as you are using the phone. I used Samsung and LG phones before, in those cases, they only ask for specific type of data access for specific apps and you consent to the access only when you download or first time running their pre-installed apps. You don't need to consent to those if you are just using the phone.

    Also, in the Privacy Policy, Section 2, it says that it will collect “information regarding what you access, input, save, send and/or receive” on or through your phone. Does this mean if I use the phone to access my bank account, it will collect my login/password? And does it mean if I use the phone to download a document from my email or Dropbox it can “collect” this document too since I receive the doc through my phone?

    Anyone ever read those agreements and your thoughts?

    Below are the links to the eula and Privacy Policy:

    So I got an email stating that a ticket was created for my query.

    I received that email on july 10th. Will reply tonight to follow up and see if they get back.

    Also in order to tackle the issue I removed cellular data from the notification area and I keep my data on all the time and use wifi wherever available.

    Let me know if theres any other way to customize lock screen notification area.
