    Hello guys i'm just curious

    Will the cm security app take a photo immediately if I failed 1 attempt only in unlocking the security code in the messaging and gallery area?

    Thanks in advance for the answers :)

    Well I can tell you it will be uploading your data, phoning home to servers in Beijing, China, and then being sold to third-parties, i.e. monetization. Are you happy with a security app doing that?

    Let's say I have failed to unlock a pattern in 1 attempt in the messaging section, will it take a photo and notify the owner immediately?

    Don't know, don't use any Cheetah Mobile products, I just don't because I know how they monetize their "free" products. I don't use anything Qihoo either, same reasons.

    I'm sure Cerberus can do what you require though.

    Cerberus can do what you want.

    No one here uses any app by CM willingly. They steal your data and send it to China.
