Using the Lock & Locate feature of the Anti-Theft component, you can lock a lost device and find out its geographic coordinates. Devices are located via GPS, or using wireless and mobile networks if GPS is unavailable.

To lock and locate a device:

  1. Enable the Lock & Locate command in the Kaspersky Internet Security for Android app. See the instructions below.
  2. Send the Lock & Locate command via My Kaspersky. See the instructions below.

Your device will be locked once the command has been sent. To unlock your device, enter the secret code.

After entering the secret code:

  • On devices running Android 4.х and 5.1, the system lock will be disabled.
  • On devices running Android 5.0, the app will replace any system lock with a PIN-based lock that matches the secret code for Anti-Theft.

You can enable the system lock once more in your device’s settings.
