I installed COMODO Mobile Security and successfully activated the Anti-Theft system. However, I noiced that when I text my own mobile through my buddy’s phone with the locate tag, it will reply saying it can’t locate at that time. I then tried enabling the GPS and it worked.
My question here is - isn’t the application supposed to automatically turn on GPS? Or, isn’t it supposed to locate even if the GPS is off?
First of all, there is no need to send remote command from buddy’s number - you can do it from any number.
On many Android devices it’s impossible for application to turn on GPS - because of a security reasons. CMS does it best to locate missing device even with GPS disabled, but it’s very inaccurate and sometimes impossible.
Hmm…just have GPS enabled all the time - it will be working only if needed (you will see because of a little antenna icon in the status bar). However, it’s risky - any app can use GPS whenever it wants to.
