Doesn’t worry Android Device Manager will help you to locate, remotely ring, lock, or erase data?

While we hope you’ll never need to use it.

Downloading Device Manager

You’ll need a Google Account to download the Device Manager app from Google Play.

Before you can use Android Device Manager to locate your device: Your device’s location access need to be turned on and be signed in to your Google Account.

Android Device Manager won’t work for devices that are turned off or that don’t have a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.

Locate a lost device By using web

Sign in to android.com/devicemanager with your Google account and if you have more than one device, click the arrow next to the device name to select the device that you want to locate. Android Device Manager will show you the location of the device that you have selected.

or By Using Android Device Manager App

You can use the Android Device Manager app to locate your lost device. You need to have the Android Device Manager app installed on the device that you want to locate.

  1. Open the Android Device Manager app, On the device that you have with you,
  2. Sign in to your Google Account.
  3. Change the device displayed:
  • On your phone: Swipe along the bottom of the screen to see your devices.
  • On your tablet: Touch the arrow next to the device to select a device.
  1. Android Device Manager will show you the location of the device you have selected.

Remotely ring, lock, or erase a lost device

If you lost your device that’s signed in to a Google Account, you can use Android Device Manager to remotely ring, lock, or erase that device. When Android Device Manager interacts with the device, it’ll get a notification. You can also use Android Device Manager to find your device’s location.

Android Device Manager won’t work for devices that are turned off, or that don’t have a Wi-Fi connection or mobile data connection with an active SIM card.

Before erasing your device:  Remotely erasing a device performs a factory reset. This removes all data from the device. While any data stored in your Google Account can be restored, all apps and their associated data will be uninstalled.

  1. Sign in to your Google Account android.com/devicemanager or use the Android Device Manager app.
  2. To select the lost device, click the arrow next to the device name. Android Device Manager will show the location of that device.
  3. Select an option. You may need to turn on Lock & Erase
    • Ring
      Rings your device at full volume for 5 minutes — even if it’s set to silent or vibrate.
    • Lock
      Locks your device with a password if you don’t already have then you need to set one.
    •  Erase
      Permanently deletes all of your data. Android Device Manager may not be able to wipe the content of an SD card in the device. After you erase the device, Android Device Manager will no longer work on it.

Add a phone number to your lost device’s lock screen

If you’ve lost a device, you can let anyone who finds that device call you at a different number directly from the lock screen.

  1. Sign in to your Google Account android.com/devicemanager or use the Android Device Manager app.
  2. If you have more than one device, use the arrow next to the device name to choose the lost device.
  3. SelectLock.
  4. In the “Phone number (optional)” field, type a phone number where you can be reached.
  5. SelectLock. A button to call the number you typed will show on the phone’s lock screen. Anyone who finds the phone can dial that number from that phone.

To remove the phone number, follow the steps above and delete the phone number.

I do accept as true with all the ideas you’ve offered for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
