Shutdown Device with Authentication ?

I just moved to asus, but unfortunately if my device is lost, someone can shut it down or enable airplane mode without any authentication pin / biometric so we can't track the device using find my phone which need access to the internet, I think this feature must through authentication fisrt for safety reason

fortunately, gps and mobile data toggle require authentication first

when will asus add this feature? I think this is a mandatory feature in every mobile phone

I agree with the problem. But I'm sorry to tell you that it's because Google has done it that way. Asus can fix it, yes, as it has done with some things like hiding the navigation bar. 

But the security problem is obvious and I already created a thread about it where the moderators replied to me.

Someone needn't shut phone down/enable airplane mode. Simply removing SIM card is enough so there won't be mobile data.

well, sim card removal is a physical things and it's need an ejector to remove, at least there are protection in the software level
