Setting up lock and erase
So I was browsing the web about this "Setting up lock and erase" procedure available via google play.
And at some point someone says and I quote:
"That's it cheers. Tried a lock device and it works. Makes me feel a bit better if some scrote gets hold of my device"
My question is: What is preventing this "scrote" from accessing the phone via recovery mode and do a factory reset?
If there's no secondary in depth protection what's the use of this "security" procedure?
I mean it can be useful to make your phone ring if you're at home you know your phone is at your place and you can't find it.... but in case you just lose it somewhere on the beach... what's the REAL use?
Thank you for your insights.
