    In Philz menu under Philz Settings there is an option called Set Up Recovery Lock. That might be what you are looking for. I've never used so no idea really.

    That can always be done, even on non rooted phone with stock recovery. Why would someone wipe your phone? You mean like get your phone from you, wipe it, then somehow slip it back to you? Huh? How? Why? Who? Lol. Incredibly unlikely scenario.

    I let one of my kids play with my old phone. It has CWM and a custom ROM with a boot to recovery option. One night he walks up to me and said there is something wrong with the phone. He was in CWM and luckily didn't mess anything up. Having a password on recovery would have been nice. I didn't know Philz had that option thanks.
