Yes. That's the whole point of installing it as a system app. If the device is factory resetted the app is still there as it's part of the ROM now.

I read the whole post. Sorry I should have been more clear. The configuration stays. It is part of the app. So the app's configuration is part of the system as well

I will post my logcat later. Currently at work but I tried on my Samsung Galaxy s5 and no matter how many failed attempts there are, there's no anti theft popup/pics/warnings or anything.
