    Hello everyone!

    I need your help! I'm looking for a particular app that can track down my phone and can lock when it's stolen via a code sent by text message.

    Here's a description of what I need.

    The app can run all time (dosen't matter if it needs root) and when my phone recieves a particular text message, (created by me and sent by me from another phone, of course) locks the screen, and send's back a message that confirms that locking the phone was successfully, like "YOUR PHONE WAS LOCKED SUCCESSFULLY", requiers a master password to unlock and activates data and GPS systems (I have unlimited data and my battery is 5000MAh, so, staying on for long periods of time isn't a problem) and sends geolocation info's (with google maps or anything) to another phone/or my personal computer witch the app is connected to so I can track down and recover. The app also needs to use the front camera, so when wrong passwords are inserted, it captures the user, sets the screens brightness to 100% as a light source for the front camera. The app also needs to COMPLETLY DISABLE the power button and volume keys, so my phone should not be shut down (my phone's battery is secured, it cannot be removed). That's all I need....

    Is there any app that has all my requirements? I really need an app like this because I already lost 3 phones because of thieves and I had enough of it.

    My phone is Android 5.1 - Philips Xenium V526

    I'm sure it's impossible to disable the power button with any app(root or not). Because just holding down the power button for about five or six seconds WILL force a phone or tablet to turn off, that's a hardware feature, so any software app can't disable it. Same on all PCs and laptops as well, holding down on the power button will force the computer off, no matter if it's crashed or not.

    For all your other requirements, there might be something that covers at least some of them, otherwise you might need a custom app written. Although I've never needed to do this myself.

    I am using mcAfee virus scanner, which does most of your requirements.
