Content Lock is yet another feature LG introduced along with LG G3, with this awesome feature you can lock any specific folders from your LG G3, without the correct password it won’t open. The best part even someone sync your LG G3 with PC or Laptop they won’t be able to view any of the hidden contents.

Kill Switch:

As for the Kill Switch, LG said users will be able to disable their device remotely in the event of theft or loss; you can wipe it, lock and more, and there is even antivirus scanning software onboard. So if somehow you lost your device, and there is no chance to get it back, sit back and open your Laptop or PC to permanently disable it from use, so no one able to use it again. Also you can wipe the entire data from your device, so that no one can steal any private information from it, even if they somehow manage to open the device.

Recently LG announced the tie-up with Antivirus giant McAfee which makes it even more stronger security for LG G3.
