Run app on locked screen, so if phone is stolen other apps can’t be accessed
In Brazil, many cellphones are stolen from inside the cars while waze is open, which allows criminals to have full access to other apps.
It would be nice if there was a way for waze to run on the locked screen, so that we can still see the map, but the phone would have to be unlocked in order to access anything else.

This is configured through the OS of the device, not by the app. And it’s already possible on both Android and iOS so no reason for Waze to work on something like that themselves.
I suffered a robbery and I worry about favorite data store in my cell phone like Home address, work address and visited usual address. In some countries thieves sells the stolen cell phones, the buyer can be an extortionist who uses the cell phone's data. We should be able to close sessions, block accounts or even delete data when our phone was lost or stolen.
