Samsung Galaxy S II :: Security Apps And Settings?

Jun 18, 2012

Now that I'm getting to grip a little more with my SGS II then the next stage is to look at security. On my old phone I had a pin code lock for when the phone was turned on. The nearest I've seen to that is the encrypt device option.Has anyone any recommendations as to good practices for security on android phones, especially with the auto sync of some accounts needed for running which makes me want to lock the phone down tight should it get into undesirable hands.

Galaxy S6 :: Samsung Email With Exchange Security Disabled

Aug 12, 2015

I need email with exchange security disabled

As far as I have looked for, there is no available solution: Wanam module requires xposed, which is not yet available for our S6 64 bits architecture, Alliance fwk announces the feature but it is not active,

So I decided to implement the solution based on the tutorial [URL] ....

I can't get the app working on the phone (it crashes). I suspect that zipalign is doing 32 bits alignment whereas the S6 is 64 bits. I found no indications on Android dev site..

Galaxy S6 :: 360 Security Root Access Needed To Uninstall System Apps

Oct 19, 2015

On my Galaxy S4, I had 360 security and I loved it. This app kept my phone running just the way I liked, and it also remove all the garbage apps I will never use. When I upgraded to the S6, one of the first apps that I downloaded was 360, however, whenever I attempt to delete the unwanted apps, the message I get is:

"This function cannot be used at the moment. 360 Security has not been granted root access."

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Can't Find Any Settings?

May 27, 2012

Kies has always worked well for me, until I updated my GSII to ICS and updated Kies to the latest version. Now I'm having trouble syncing the GSII with Outlook on my PC as I want.fter the last sync, I find that the contacts on the PC have all duplicated (2 of everything), and the contacts on the phone have all been removed.When I first set up Kies there were options to determine how priorities on new/changed contact records on phone and PC should be resolved. Now I can't find any settings for that. It's just the one 'sync' setting.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Changes Settings On Switch Off / Reboot?

Oct 4, 2012

My S2 has behaving a bit strangely now for a while, but after updating it to ICS it seems to have gotten worse!

The settings I use daily are (amongst other ones):-

- WIFI off
- bluetooth on
- ringer vibrate
- brightness 25%

Before ICS, when I switched the phone off and then on again, it would change the settings to the following:-

- WIFI on
- bluetooth off
- brightness 50%

After ICS update it now also resets the ringer to loud, not vibrate.

It seems to make the changes shortly after it boots. For example, I switch it on, put my pin in and the bluetooth is on, wifi off, ringer vibrate (as it was when it went off). However, shortly after my home screens have loaded with their icons, the BT, WIFI, brightness and ringer all change, almost as if it's loading some default settings.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Checking Version And Other Settings

Sep 18, 2011

-i just bought the phone, i would like to know if i need to upgrade anything, and if it is needed. what do i need to check. i am quite a mobile phone noob. i read the manual and i thought i would know how the phone works, but i have still lots of questions.

-also i want to uninstall some apps i dont need, how do i do that?

-about kies, it is used for transfer between pc and mobile right? do i really need to install it, cant i just use the pc usb - phone usb to transfer files?

-about auto-rotate from normal view to landscape view, is it possible to do this manually? with some sort of quick tap operation or something. also i switched it off, but when i use the Internet app for example, it still auto-rotates.

-about the Internet app, is it there so you can view everything immediately in mobile phone format? and using internet browser, you would get the normal format? is it possible to switch to mobile format for websites when using the webbrowser?

-about android, and android market applications, are they safe to use? have they been checked by android admins or something?

-what kind of security measures are needed for this phone, like anti-virus, anti malware, firewall?

Galaxy S5 :: Best Way To Back Up Apps And Settings

Oct 31, 2014

What is the best way to back up apps and settings so if I get a new Samsung phone I won't have to re-create my settings and download my apps again? I found Kies and backed up on my Mac. Is that reliable? Is there a way to do it in the cloud like Apple's iCloud? I just switched from t-mobile to Verizon and had to re-create my settings and download my non stock Google Apps again and that was time consuming. ´╗┐My S5 isn't rooted and I don't plan to root it.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Email Server Settings Modification?

Jun 11, 2012

I can set up my account and send/receive emails with no problem using either pop or imap, the problem I have is trying to then modify the 'Server Settings' to set the 'delete from server' option under 'incoming settings'. When I select 'incomming settings', username/password, 'done', nothing happens, I'm just returned back to the original settings screen that I originally selected 'incomming settings' from. What is also suspicious is the option for 'outgoing settings' is not listed at all, when I look at documentation the option for 'outgoing settings' is there under 'server settings' but not on my phone it's not.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Contacts And Voice Recognition Settings?

Jul 3, 2011

The following questions are probably more Android-related in general, and not SGSII - specific. But as the SGSII is my first Android smartphone, please bear it with me and try to explain everything in layman's terms 1. In Contacts, what exactly does the "Merge with Google" option do (apart from displaying that little "g" icon next to a contact)? Also, after using it, I don't see to be able to revert the action - is it still possible?. Is it only possible to synchronize my Contacts with my Google account after the above mentioned "Merge with Google" action has been applied, or are they completely separate? E.g. if I add a new contact to my Phone, will it get synchronized with Google even if I don't Merge it with Google first?

3. Is it possible to also synchronize other contacts (like those from Facebook, LinkedIn, etc) in order to store them on my Google account for safety reasons4. Does the Google contacts synchronization work also the other direction, i.e. after I edit My Contacts on my Google accont, can I just use "Synchronize" in the SGSII to update the Phone contacts? Or do I need to delete all Contacts from my Phone first, and only then synchronize to the current Google version?5. I write messages/emails in English as often as I do in Polish. When I set Polish as the input language in Voice Recognition settings, and happen to compose a message in English using voice recognition, it often happens some Polish words are generated (and vice versa). I thought it would be logical if - apart from the global input language setting - the keyboard input language settings (changeable via the Space bar) - would eliminate the problem (ie. the VR engine should expect and use only English words when the keyboard is set to Eng, and so on) - but it doesn't seem to work.

Samsung :: Lost 4-digit Security Lock Code For Samsung Restore SPH-M570 / SPH-M575?

Jul 19, 2011

I've lost the 4 digit user selected security lock code which is required to reset the phone.Virgin says Samsung should help recover the code and Samsung says Virgin should help recover the code.A while back, I found a code on the web that allowed me to go into a service menu which listed among other things the lock code. I can't find any information on how to get back into that menu.

By the way, yes, I tried the last 4 digits of the phone number, 0000, 9999, 1234.If anyone knows how to get into the service menu on this phone

The only codes I've found so far are:##786# which gets into an info menu but doesn't have the lock code.##33284# which requires a 6-digit security code which I don't know.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Email Settings Removed After Software Upgrade?

Dec 18, 2012

Recently my phone did a software upgrade, and for some reason this removed all my email settings. I've been trying to setup my email account on it again but don't seem to be having any joy. My address is through Utility Warehouse (xxxxx@uwclub.net)- so I typed that and the password in at the first setup screen. The next screen asked to select between pop3 and IMAP, which I chose pop3. I then set the incoming server to pop3.uwclub.net and the outgoing to smtp.uwclub.net- I am positive these are the settings I've used before. However after saying Processing for a long time I get a timeout message. I've tried with and without SSL and I still can't get my emails to work!
