Anti Theft Control 2013 FAQ
- What is Anti Theft Control 2013?
Anti Theft Control 2013 Engine is a security application to protect your phone from unauthorized use. You need to setup your password and your contact data : Host phone number and Host email address *ATTENTION* Host Phone number must be a different number not the one you have in your phone in order to send and receive data even if someone steals your phone with your sim card inside. After you have setup your contact data you can enable the "Activate on Sms" option for the phone to start listening for new sms commands. If you like, instead of using sms commands, you can always use the Email Remote Engine and control your phone via email commands. Its up to you!
- How to Launch Anti Theft Control 2013?
Anti Theft Control 2013 is fully hidden from the system so noone can be aware there is a security measure installed on your phone. To Open Anti Theft Control 2013 please press the "Photo Manager" icon in your app list, read the description inside and then open your dialer and call this number: 4141. This is the default launch code and you can change it later from the settings.
- Why i can't see the app on my list?
Because the app is hidden. After your installation you will see a new app by the name : "Photo Manager" and if you try to open it nothing will happen. This is Anti Theft Control's camouflage so dont worry and dont try to remove it.
- Why the name of the application includes "2013"?
Because there will be a new build on the first quarter of 2013. Every year a totally new build will be available for the public with new features, massive improvements and new UI design. This doesn't mean that the previous builds will not get any updates, bug fixes or support.
- Anything Critical i need to know first?
Yes! You need after your initial password setup to setup Your Contact Details: *Your Name*, *Host phone number*, *Host email address* and *Lock Phone Number*. You need to insert correct/valid data because if you don't the application will not function properly and you will not be able to receive your backup password that is automatic generated from the system in case you forget your main security password. Also you need to enable "Device Administration" option in order to protect Anti Theft Control from unauthorized uninstallation and to be able to use wipedata remote command. You also need to Keep in mind that after market task killers and sms applications may cause serious problems to Anti Theft Control. We recommend to use the default sms application and no task killers. Friedly tip : If you're running android 2.2+ you dont really need a task killer. Os is already optimized to handle just fine the background processes.
- If my phone is stolen how Anti Theft Control 2013 will help me find it?
The first thing you need to know is that Anti Theft Control does not have any web interface and its not connected to any web server. The only way to manage your phone is via sms (to the phone number installed on your phone) or via email (to a specific gmail address you need to setup in the Activate On Email section) if you are a pro user and you have this feature unlocked. If your phone is stolen the first thing the thief is going to do is probably shut it down and remove your sim card so you cant send any commands. If you have done a proper setup and you have the security measures like "Sim Security" enabled then you need to wait until the thief activates the phone again with his new sim card. The phone will realize that the sim card has been changed and it will notify you to your host phone number and host email address about the thief's new phone number and the location of your phone (You can send commands to the new phone number the thief installed on your phone when you're going to get it from Anti Theft Control's lock notification). The phone will lock and it will be totally useless for someone to operate it. The only way to unlock the phone is to enter the security password you have setup in the settings. Keep in mind that the phone will not only lock if a sim card change occur but it will also lock if you have security measures like uninstall protection market protection and device administration enabled. For example if the thief tries to uninstall the app with uninstall protection and device administration options enabled the phone will lock or if the thief tries to access the Play store (android market) with Uninstall protection and Market protection options enabled the phone will also lock. We recommend to decide wisly what security measures you will enable to have your phone secure. *BEWARE* that if the thief is an advanced user he can bypass the OSand enter the boot recovery menu (like the dos mode in your computer before you boot in to windows) to wipe the phone completely. There is no application that can protect you from this situation. We just want you to know all the possible scenarios.
- Any Specific way to setup my Contact Data?
Yes! First of all you need to insert correct data. Your *Host email address* must be an active email account that you have access to, your *Host phone number(s)* must be secondary phone number(s) and not the same with the one you have installed on the phone running Anti Theft Control, *Your Name* requires nothing special just you real name and finally the *Lock Phone Number* must be also a second phone number and not the same with the one you have installed on the phone running Anti Theft Control . *ATTENTION* Please DO NOT use symbols in your *Host Phone Number(s)* and *Lock Phone Number*. If your phone number is 2117133234 and you live in Greece, you don't need to add your Country code i mean don't use this format : +30211..... just write the phone number without the + symbol and your Country code like this : 2117133234.
- What is Email Remote Engine?

By giving the rights, you will prevent unauthorized uninstall of anti theft control and you will be able to use the wipedata remote command. No worries at all, Anti Theft Control is a secure reliable application and will not brick your phone by giving it admin rights. You will also see what admin rights the application asks so you can decide!

"Perimeter Zone Security". Define a perimeter zone area for your phone and protect it from leaving this area without your knowlege. When you're going to open this setting you will need to wait 10 secs until the phone gets your location, then you can choose the zone area size and the alert action. If the perimeter zone is bridged then your phone will perform your selected action and will disable perimeter zone security option so you dont get spammed with messages. If you want to re-use it simple reopen the setting, wait for Anti Theft Control to get your location and then enable it again. The Engine will stay active as long as the phone remains inside your specific zone area.
"Facebook Connection". This Option will allow your phone to post alert messages to your facebook wall if a security measure is bridged. Its fairly easy to setup and its secure because it uses the official Facebook SDK.
"Widget Control Panel". Activate this option to enable the widget (Anti Theft Panel) to manage your security measures from your home screen.
"Activate Logs". if this option is true then your phone will keep Logs for every Anti Theft Control event occurs. For example if a new command received it will write to the log file what command was that, if it was executed successfully and from what phone number came from.

You can find the log viewer in the about section. Also you can clear the log file by pressing menu in the log Viewer activity and choose Clear Log.
"Show Notifications". If this option is true your phone will post a notification message in your notification bar to warn you what security measure is active.
"Block Outgoing Calls". if this option is true your phone will block all the outgoing calls (calls we make from our phone not receiving) except the launch code to open Anti Theft Control 2013.
"Activate SIM Security". if this option is true then your phone will monitor (No battery consumption at all) if a SIM Card change occur and will lock the phone requesting the Security password to accept this new SIM Card.
"Uninstall Protection". If this option is true then your phone will protect all your applications from unauthorized uninstall. It will lock the phone and ask for your security password. After you insert it then you can proceed uninstalling your applications.
"Play Store Protection". If this option is true then uninstall protection engine will also protect your phone from unauthorized use of the Play Store application.
