Anti-Theft is designed to protect your phone and help you to find it in case of theft or loss. When enabled, you’ll have the option to erase all data remotely, locate your phone on a map, find it if it is misplaced by activating the alarm, and lock your device completely. You can learn more about the requirements for Anti-Theft here.
