    Hi there. I was wondering about this one which drives me crazy. I have Wifi/Data/GPS/NFC/BT and Dolby in my status bar for fast on/off. The only thing which needs your phone to be unlocked before making on/off is Mobile Data which you can't set on/off without finger print or gesture unlock.
    Thats not a big deal, but imagine your phone got stolen and you realize you have your NFC active, because you don't need a PIn when paying with NFC and you can ON/OFF NFC in status bar WITHOUT unlockign your phone which is a rally big threat for your card security. Any other fast settings in status bar doesn't need unlocking your phone.

    Is there a way to change these setting fro NFC on/off to need unlockign your phone the same way as data have? Also is tehre a way to remoe this feature from data? That drives me crazy everytime :D

    I know what you're saying and from a security point of view it can be a big problem especially with Google Pay via the NFC like like you stated.

    Unfortunately however this isn't an option in Android as it stands right now :slightly_sad: if I'm the chance this does happen (and I really hope it never does as I've had it happen to me) you can remove any payment method from your phone via Account.Google.com and that should remove the card from Gpay also but I'd also contact your bank too just incase.

    Sorry I can't be of anymore assistance on this.

    You got the point. Also figured out that GPS on/off also need your phone to be unlocked.
    Thanks for the info you can remove it from google account. Just started to use this form of payment when I got my RP2 and I really like it so I will probably remove it from status bar so I will need to use on/off in setting which needs the phone to be unlocked. Only way to do this and be safe.

    - wonder how I would remove google pay from my account when the phone with internet will be stolen :D just saying.

    Anyway, thanks for confirmation and solution ;)
