Protecting the app against uninstallation
September 28, 2023
You can protect Kaspersky app against being uninstalled on the device. If your device is stolen, intruders won't be able to uninstall Kaspersky app and prevent you from using the Where Is My Device feature.
Changing some system settings interrupts the work of protection features in Kaspersky app. When you turn on uninstallation protection, such systems settings are protected against changes. When someone tries to change them, your device is locked. You will be able to unlock the device by using your device PIN, lock pattern, or fingerprint.
To protect Kaspersky app against being uninstalled on the device:
- On the Kaspersky app bottom tab bar, tap All Features.
- Tap Where Is My Device.
- Unlock access to the feature by using your secret code, unlock pattern, or fingerprint.
- In the Additional protection section, tap Uninstallation protection.
- Turn on the feature.
Kaspersky app will ask for the secret code when someone tries to uninstall the app. The device will be locked when someone tries to change the system settings affecting your device protection.
