This feature will make the DeviceTrack.net software run in show mode (unstealth) or invisible mode (stealth) on the remote device.
For the best protection, we recommend running DeviceTrack.net in Stealth mode. This will hide the software from a thief. They will not know that Devicetrack.net is running in the background.
They will not be aware that anyone is tracking them or using any of the Devicetrack.net's remote control features!
In File & App Mgr, click on the "Unstealth" button.
The remote device will show the devicetrack.net software.
