How To Configure Your Phone To Take Photos of Anyone That Enters Wrong Password

You can set your phone to take photos of anyone that tries to unlock your device or try to snoop on your Whatsapp, Facebook chats or any app on your smartphone. This, you can do easily by installing CM security mobile app on your phone.

The app has an AppLock — Intruder Selfie feature that simply helps you know who wanted to access your information.

If anyone tries to break into your phone and enters the incorrect password 2 or more times, the app will make the front facing camera on your phone to take the picture of the infiltrator, save it to the gallery and notify you by email. If your phone is stolen, CM will email you the selfie of the thief who tried to unlock your phone.
