Let us help you. Please tell us about...
Affected device (desktop, laptop, tablet, phone): phone
Operating system (Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, Ubuntu, Fedora): Android
Part of Prey not working (Prey account, mobile app, a specific action or module, reports): actions
Could you please describe the problem?
I set my account to only allow the power button on my phone to work if my home screen pattern is unlocked. I am testing out the situation of my phone getting lost and someone figures out my unlock pattern, shutting off my phone. I thought if I sound an alarm or ask Prey for its location, it is supposed to complete that action as soon as the phone gets turned back on? So, when I test all the actions (sound alarm, display message, etc.) if my phone is off, it states, " This action will run once your device connects to the Prey servers." But when I turn it on and I see the wifi and location are active, nothing happens. I am concerned that if my phone is lost and the theif figures out my unlock patten, they will turn my phone off and render Prey useless.
And finally, please attach a screenshot if available (you can drag and drop images)
