According to LeoMaster team, the anti-theft feature is based on SMS recognition to work. If you forgot your phone somewhere, then you can ring your phone by sending a message.

Later, this would be beneficial in helping you remotely manage your stolen phone. It also notifies you every time you change the SIM card in your phone – which is effective feature in case your phone gets stolen and someone tries to change the SIM card in your device.
