    Yes, if it's an Android phone go into Settings, Security

    And in there you can set a PIN.

    There are probably apps to remotely track your phone but it isn't a good idea to chase down a criminal yourself.

    Android Device Manager, find it in your Google Dashboard online.
    Register your device, and you can track it, and even remote wipe it.
    It's a great built in Google service.

    And there are apps like Lookout: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=com.lookout that will take a picture of whoever tries to unlock your phone and you can view it on the Lookout website.

    The Google solution is free and built-in, so as a previous poster mentioned, you should do that (along with a PIN or password) at a minimum.
