    Hi, and I'm so sorry about the theft of your device!

    That would depend what safety features you had in place. Like mine for instance, requires passcode/finger print, and if they tried to factory reset, they would have to have my ADM login information.

    Ultimately, if they had a lot of hacking abilities, they could find a way in, but your average thief, just wants to get the phone set up as new, for him/her.

    Going forward, always set your phone for passcode lock, and always set up an option to wipe phone, if its misplaced, or stolen. Setting up Android Device Manager and Samsung's "Find My Mobile" is a great thing to do. You can also set up the google account, to be required if they did a factory reset.

    Hope this helps!

    Chris

    Did you have a microSD card inserted? Unless you encrypted this data, this information will be fully available to the thief (regardless of fingerprint/passcode options).
