What is the Finder (Anti-Theft) feature in F-Secure SAFE?

This discussion has a more recent version.

Finder, or previously known as Anti-Theft, is a feature in F-Secure SAFE that adds several security layers to your Android and iOS devices. With Finder on both Android and iOS, you can:

  • Locate your device; and
  • Sound an alarm.

In cases where you have misplaced an Android device, or had it stolen -- as long as you are logged on to My F-Secure, you can remotely send a security command from another device to do the following:

  • Lock your device (Android only); or
  • Wipe all files and apps (Android only) on your device.

These features must be turned on on your device first for Finder to work. By default, Find my device (locate) and Play alarm on device (Alarm) are on. You need to manually turn on these features on your device as they require device administrator permissions.
