MIUI ROM

[Feature Request] More Security Options - Device off prevention

The MIUI has many great features, and security features too such as tracking device from the cloud, making tool bar not to go down when device is locked and such, but to there could be more. There is a huge flaw in the security of the MIUI, that is the device can be turned off by literally any one even if it's locked! What if you could make it impossible to turn off the device, by needing to input your personal password /fingerprint and, if not possible to do that (damaged device for example) using a 10 key combination that only you know to make the device turn off?? That would be extremely handy if you get the device stolen and your data plan/gps is on, making it possible to track down a theif, because he would be unable to turn off the device and data   gps respectively! Please check into this feature!! It could make MUIU reference in securty. Thanks for your attention, VOTE and do share if you think it's an important feature to have on MIUI!
ps: also oblige/force MIUI to send last lostation on battery low when this setting is on. Let's make miui smarter than anyOS

Thanks for your support. It's through all of you that we can make a better suited security software. Just didn't expect for someone to vote to liking being robed, but you can never tell what do they do for living. 😋
once again thanks for the positive feedback

This post is more important now that the MIUI 12 update has made it possible to switch off internet, gps location and airplane mode even if the device is locked

There are good reasons for not wanting this. This doesn't improve security. The robber's just going to wrap your phone in aluminium foil. And you lose the option to reset your phone from recovery if you forget password. Here's a list of people i know who have lost access to their phones due to forgetting password: my sister, two of my cousins and two of my friends.

You can get the requested security feature by the means of obtaining root access of the MIUI based smartphone and with the help of CustoMIUIzer app. You can get the app from Google Play Store.


P.S. You can disable 'Power menu access' and 'Quick settings access' from 'Always-on display & Lock screen' settings.
