A special code that is needed to uninstall the app.
Otherwise the thief would just uninstall the app once he/she steals it and we would be helpless.
This can be done with root, what i.would like to do is edit the apk so that it is active as soon as ot installs. And then incude it into the factory reset image so it stays active even after a wipe. with all the bloatware i wish verizon could include something useful like this
If you go into your "my apps" there its an option to house apps you can select "lmd" and choose to hide it..
hide the app.. -.- use go launcher and hide it or smth.. -.-

Dear, I installed the app in my Sansung Galaxy S2 but unfortunately didn't work out correctly, now I'm not able to uninstall this app from my phone, the device don't accept to uninstall. What can I do?

This was the first thing that popped into my head when installing this. If its for theft purposes a smart thief (few and far between, but still) would uninstall the app. I'm wondering if there is some way to tell the OS that the app requires the user to (re)enter their Google credentials on removal. Possibly some sort of permission type thing? Anyway, just wondering.

I understand this, but Android does not allow it. You can ALWAYS uninstall an app be going into the Phone Settings. Otherwise, and developer could make an "evil" app that stays on your phone forever.
