Thumbs up How to use Android Device Manager as an anti-theft tool

In this way you can find your lost Android smartphones.
it also can double as a theft deterrent device, enabling you to locate, lock, and even wipe your device remotely should you need to do so. Of course, you need to first make sure this is set-up properly, so letís take a look at how it is done.

Before posted here in this forum, but i will show you here the full procedure.
See below

  • Now Go to Google Setting you can find here a option named Device manager.See photo below.

  • Once inside Google Settings, you will have access to the Device Manager option and this will bring up two selections that you can enable: Locate this device remotely and Allow remote lock and data factory reset. By default, the second option is disabled and once enabled, it will allow you to remotely lock your device and wipe it in case of theft.

  • When youíve activated this option, a confirmation page will pop up that will confirm that you know what entitles enabling this option.
If you canít find the icon for Google Settings or for some reason you donít have it, you can also enable this in your Security portion of the Settings.

  • Once inside Security, head to Device Administrators and check off the Device Manager box to allow your device to be locked remotely.

Once thatís all said and done, you can now use Android Device Manager to remotely lock and wipe your device for whatever reason you deem necessary. While it may be a last ditch effort to protect your stored information on your device, itís much better than having someone gain access to your personal Google accounts such as gmail.
