    What's your idea when your phone freezes or malfunctions and you need to restart?

    It wouldn't matter because a thief can just hold volume up and power to force the phone to reboot and then go into recovery.

    I know, and having a power off password won't stop them because they can just reboot the phone by holding volume up and power

    A force restart by pressing power button or by combination of power button and volume up. :) It will restart the phone but not switch it off. And all malfunction are gone. Biy this is what Samsung have implemented. It the most convenient method. Even helps in case of phone gets lost or stolen as location through internet can be known if data is on and phone is locked, since intruder couldn't turn it off without password. :)

    having controls can atleast reduce the risk to significantly low level. something is better than nothing. If a thief is not tech genius , he might resort to switching the phone off, but because of this control he won't be able to do so.

    It doesn't matter if they add a password as all they have to do is turn off data or pull the sim card, which both require no password.

    Which means bye bye phone as you won't be able to track it.

    This has been suggested multiple times already.

    If a thief is willing to steal your cell phone, you bet your *** they're going to know to at least pop the sim card.

    You can still turn off data from the lock screen.

    It takes a few minutes or less to wedge out your sim card, which in most cases is not enough time to track down and locate your cell phone.

    Assuming they don't pull the sim card, you can track it by going to My Devices on Googles site.

    no other method available?​


    Not sure why you need another method as you're able to track, lock and erase your phone.

    You can try searching the web for another method.

    If you're constantly worried about someone swiping your phone, you can always get one of those retractable tethers that allows you to connect your phone to yourself and still be able to use it.

    There isn't one other then attaching some kinda of tracker on your phone like they use for drones.

    Don't give people the opportunity to steal your phone and you won't have an issue.
