In the past I could enable USB debug and my USB storage would not auto mount to the computer it was connected to. Now no mater what I try with the S5 it will not allow me to disable this automount behavior, even while on the lock screen. I find this to be a HUGE issue with security anyone who can grab my phone can access all the files on it very quickly.
Has anyone figured out how to disable this?
Sorry if this has been asked already, I did search.
If the screen is locked you should not be able to see phone or SD storage. Try this.
- Unplug the phone from the PC
- Lock the screen
- Plug phone back into PC
You should see the PC recognize the device, but when you click into it, it should be empty until you unlock the phone.
If you unlock the phone while plugged in. It will remember this until unplugged and locked again.
As far as I'm concerned turning the only real way is to set Windows to stop auto play for the device. However this would have to be done on any PC it's connected to.
Dennis, you are half right. USB debugging is meant for file transferring (but on a deeper level). It is more of a dev. tool then setting for the average user. When USB Debugging is enabled Devs. use it for establishing a connection Between the Android SDK(Software Development Kit) with an Android Based Device
