feature request: disable power menu
« on: February 22, 2015, 06:49:59 PM »
First I want to thank you for your excellent app.

I did a quick search on the forums and didn't find a request for the feature I am missing, if it was requested before my apologies.

I would love a disable power menu setting, so my device can not be turned off when the screen is locked, like the function in prey.

Thank you for reading! Best regards

Thank you Kardir! Do you mean feature in Prey Anti-Theft? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prey

I'll pass it to responsible product manager - he will let you know.

Hi Hermansky, thank you for your reply! You are correct, I was refering to prey anti-theft for android. It's imho the only thing missing in Avast.

I'm really impressed by all the features Avast is offering right now and the interface on the website is perfect!

Thanks in advance for passing my request on and thank you all again for all the great services Avast is offering right now.

Hello and thanks for your proposal.
Currently we have started to work on new Avast Anti-Theft with new design and features.
Disabling phone turn-off is a good feature to have.

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for your reply, I was thinking maybe it's even better if you can make it so that it just looks the phone is turned off instead of just disabling the menu.

And to turn it "on" again a key combination or a number of times pressing the on/off button, no idea if this is possible just a thought.

Anyway just disabling the power menu would be great also.

Thank you for reading and if you are one of the programmers good luck and thanks for an already fantastic product!

What about feature to disable power menu when antitheft is set to lock the phone?.... Having your premium app without this feature makes no sense..

PS Any thief can just turn off the phone (is as simple as when battery is detachable).
