With Bitdefender Anti-Theft, you can remotely locate, lock, wipe or send a message to your device in case of loss or theft. Plus, your Android phone is capable of self-defense: it snaps a mugshot of anyone who tries to tamper with it in your absence, then sends it to you in your Bitdefender Central account.

Hi @Pawtoen,

Malwarebytes for Android does not use device administration rights for locating mobile devices, nor any other drastic actions such as wiping the device.

Instead, we use device administration for ransomware remediation.

Ransomware is particularity dangerous, and if given device administration rights (accidentally), it can render the device unusable.  By giving Malwarebytes for Android device administration rights, we can remediate ransomware even after it is given privileged rights.

For example, some ransomware may change the device’s user pin.  We can remediate this if given device admin rights to reset the pin (via SMS commands).

Also, device admin rights protect Malwarebytes for Android from being uninstalled by malware.
