Xiaomi's newest software feature will bring an extra layer of security to owners of their devices. This feature is currently only available on the latest version of Xiaomi's Chinese software but will make its way over to the global market when MIUI 13 is released at the latest.

Xiaomi's skin, MIUI, may get criticism for some things but it's always been one of the most feature-packed Android skins, and Xiaomi has continued in that vein till now. The company has consistently implemented new features, and the latest one is geared at further boosting the security of Xiaomi phones. 

The newest version of the Mi Security app is implementing a new feature that will make theft of Xiaomi devices harder or, at least, more inconvenient. This new feature will require a user to input a pattern before the device can be turned off, as long as the device was locked beforehand. 

To be fair, this isn't a groundbreaking feature, as Samsung has had the same thing for years. Or, at least, as far back as One UI 2.5, which is the oldest version of Samsung software I have access to. It's still a nifty feature, though, and one that should offer an extra layer of protection to Xiaomi owners. 

At the moment, this app is only available on the latest version of the China MIUI Security App. We expect it to make its way over to the global version of MIUI soon, perhaps in a standalone update, or when MIUI 13 starts rolling out fully. 

Buy the Mi 11 Lite on Amazon and be one of the first to receive MIUI 13 when it rolls out.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
