Google Play kills ESET Anti-Theft for mobile

Recommended Posts

Since very recently, the eset anti-theft online portal says all my android devices need to be optimised since mobile data it turned off.

Thing is, mobile data is on and ative and working.

Well, a check of the mobile app under anti-theft, SMS text commands shows it is disabled. I go to enable it and get a screenshot (see attached) which states :

New Google Play Permission Restrictions.

Due to an update in the Google Developer Policies, the following features have been removed from ESTS Mobile Security:

- SMS text commands

- Trusted Friends

I guess that means anti-theft and the ability to find my portable device is now dead?

Anti-Theft in any version of EMS can be controlled via the Anti-Theft portal https://anti-theft.eset.com/ provided it's enabled in the AT setup on a phone.

Marcos. Independent of what ESET facilitates in its service, anti-theft will no longer work because Google have removed features in the phone. Please acknowledge - Google have stated THEY have removed it - the ESET anti-theft portal isn't going to put it back.

Do you see support of the Anti-Theft portal listed here? It's not there.

I use a Google Play version of EMS, have Anti-Theft enabled and I'm able to control it via the AT portal.
