    the more third party apps you have, the higher your attack surface and a decrease in security. I love my mods but this isn’t really a solution and should be an os feature.

      How would that be implemented? The way stock does it is though proprietary software

        what is proprietary about a locked bootloader? the only android fork i can recommend is GrapheneOS. you relock the bootloader on that as well.

          Oh, I though you were talking about lock out and findmydevice

            find my device would be more difficult to implement without a decently sized company backing it but a lock out function wouldn’t be that difficult. it just needs to be implemented into the os itself rather than rely on the trustworthiness of a third party dev.

              I use a app on F-droid called findmydevice. It can use a custom server but I just opted to SMS via a password
