    my previous phone got stolen and was turned off the second it got missing. If there was a password / fingerprint to turn off the deviece we could have easily traced the device. So one plus please add this feature. This can save millions from getting there loved daily driver back to them.

    This has been discussed before, if you want to read more about it try the search function.

    The short answer is this: A android phone can be turned off even if it would have the password function. Also ejecting the sim card will prevent the tracking from working.

    I'm using a 1 year license Kaspersky, and it locks down my phone and taking pictures of the person who is holding it to my Kaspersky account whenever it's not me who ejected the sim cards....

    Maybe we will have further security measures once e-sim is commercialized globally.
    For now, every smartphone turns off if you hold the power button for over 10 seconds, it's a security measures once the OS crashes unexpectedly leaving the phone unusable. it's a safe mechanism and a hardware requirement.

    We may have tracking in a few more years(5-10 years) when the OS is utterly optimized and other security implementation added to further ensure the safety and reliability of the device.

    Android and IOS are still years behind of a safe, reliable OS, that's why every year comes with tons of new implementations, much like Microsoft Windows.
    One day, we will have a clean OS with pretty much everything we need and optimized at it's peek, then security measures will be number 1 priority.

    Until then, Google and Apple try it's best to ensure our demands are fulfilled with every new itineration that releases.
