Phone Security Alarm is a high quality app that can notify you when your phone is touched or taken whenever you are not aware.

Whether it is your family members, friends or even strangers trying to intrude into your phone privacy, this app not only will shock them with its loud alarm but also alert you. Unlike other apps (which only detects motion), this app can also identify whether your phone is in your pocket, bag, or even trigger an alarm when any external ferromagnetic objects are moved!

Note that some features requires the Pro Version.

Desktop Mode
- Triggers alarm when phone is moved, or taken, from a desktop.

Pocket/Bag Mode
- Triggers alarm when phone is taken out from your pocket/bag.

Magnetic Interference Mode
- Triggers alarm when phone is moved or when a [nearby ferro-magnetic object] is stolen. The first and only mobile phone app supporting this feature.

Realistic lock screen
- Pick your own wallpaper to match the gorgeous lock screen.
- Discrete alarm delays, accompanied with SmartDelay

Very disappointing

The app has to be activated each time you want to use it. And the phone has to be left unlocked.
Also it takes too long to unlock it after the alarm goes off. That could be good if you expect someone who knows your passcode is snooping but it was just annoying to me.

Developer Response ,

Hi,

Thank you for your review. I would like to correct some possibly mistaken information you have.

You do not need to leave your phone unlocked to use the app. You can either lock your phone normally, or setup Secure Mode (with Guided access).

If you want to lock the phone while the app is running in the background, it's perfectly fine and still works, but you'll have compromises like not being able to take photos as iOS prevents that from happening.

After the alarm goes off, unlocking is easy, just double tap the center of the screen and enter your password. Or if you used Secure Mode, triple press the home button and enter your password, or press home button once to use Touch ID. It only takes as long as you can type the password.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope this helps!

How do you turn off the alarm when it’s on?

Developer Response ,

Hi,

Just tap the center of the screen and enter your passcode/use Touch ID/Face ID. (Alternatively, if used, exit Guided Access with passcode/Touch ID/Face ID)

Hope this helps!

Please fix

It’s a great app but I can’t delete the pictures that it takes when the alarm goes on

Developer Response ,

Hi there,

Sorry for the late reply.

There was a feature limitation which unintentionally prevents one from deleting pictures in the Lite version of the app. I'll fix this in the next update.

Hope this helps! :)
