[Help]

Sorry the thread was TLDR for this situation.

I installed Theftie, and now I can't get back in.

I'm stuck on the locked screen. If I try too many pins it locks me out for 15 minutes. The web commands don't work, and neither do the SMS commands.

When I try to e-mail the pin to my accounts (2 of them) it fails each time.

One other thing: When I'm in the theftie app there are a TON of SMS commands, of which I don't remember, however when you go to the web control center there are only a few.

If someone could either:
A) Help me get out of this situation or
B) Upload all the theftie sms commands. No need to type/copy them, just take a screen shot.

Thanks, I've spent the last few hours trying to find my stolen phone (which I did) and now I have another problem....I can't get in.

There has to be a way to fix this since I have physical access to the phone. ADB isn't working right now, but I could boot into recovery, and possibly a zip file I could flash that would either remove this app, or at least nuke it so I can remove it

I've just installed theftie and so far dont see much benefits comparing to apps I used before (lookout, prey), perhaps som eone can point these out for me. I am kind of upset that I need to use a google account to manage it though. I'd prefer to not mix those things.

The question is can I track track my device location without triggering the "missing" mode? So far I wasnt able to figure out how to do it using their web interface.

    Hi, happy new year to everyone!
    I have a question... yesterday I installed theftie into my new rooted phone, I did everything which is necessary, activate it in xposed and reboot then I converted it to system app. I set master pin and made every setting to secure my phone, it seems like everything ok...
    But this morning, I wanted to make some changes on theftie, I tap on the it's icon then it launch the panel which asked me to key in my master pin and then I key in my master pin... then the theftie app just closed up and it's icon on my app drawer disappeared...
    Now I can not access the theftie at all

    Tu pourrais peut-être en profiter pour répondre à ma question plus haut, non??

      Am I the only one thinking this entire service is really sketchy? How are you able to provide this service for free? How are you making any money? There are no ads and no premium addons. Probably collecting personal data without user consent and selling it out to companies. I'd beware of this app and if you have it already make sure to lock it down with XPrivacy or just get rid of it entirely.

      Hi davelee1054,

      We are a small team building Android apps. We're working hard to build apps. Please check my profile on XDA forum. Check out term of service/privacy policy. We don't collect personal information for money. We don't force you to login to use it. Several features of the app is still working without login with you Google+.

      This app is still in early stage and has bugs. It's free for now, just like many other services do during the early state (Dropbox, Feedly, Google products, etc,...). We don't promise this is 100% free of charge in the future since we should paid for cloud and coffee for my team.

      Cheer,

      Hi. I would have a suggestion. How about Pushbullet support?
      That way you could enter the command that you would send over SMS like for example "*Theftie*<PIN>*command*parameters*" in you browser and send it using Pushbullet to you phone! :)

      Thanks!

      Great suggestion. A Chrome extension may be good
