Android Device Manager lets you delete data and phone location

Hello friends, today's tutorial we will talk about the new service from Google called Android Device Manager that allows us to locate your Android device if you lose or we were stolen.
Android Device Manager is a service that ought to exist for so long as it happens to Samsung or Apple devices running iOS operating system.
Android Device Manager allows users of Android devices to log in with the same Google account on the device used in Android Device Manager service page accessed from a desktop browser, on a tablet or any other device that has an Internet connection. Once in Device Manager interface we will be able to give a remote control device to Android for it to play an alarm for 5 minutes at maximum volume, even if the device is in silent mode. A useful option that allows us to locate the device if you lose the house and not know where our device. If we find the device in less than 5 minutes, we are able to optimal existing alarm by pressing the power button on your Android device.
Another important feature is the ability to locate your lost device on a map and so we can recover or we can get an idea about where he was and so we can decide what action to take on further recovery.
The most important feature of the Android Device Manager service is "Erase Device" which will allow us to remotely delete (remotely) all existing information on the lost or stolen Android device. I would recommend that you use this option with the utmost caution and consider it only if you think there is no chance of recovering your lost or stolen Android device.
Although we do not offer advanced options as other existing location services market which we have made video tutorials in the past, it's still good to have the options available, which can benefit any time without being forced to install or prepare something before our Android device as happens when using other services or applications of location.

  5. Hi, I'm a little disappointed with the application, especially when it comes to location…. I was located in Cluj in a location where I was a month ago…. and he still tells me that they are about 19 meters away, although I am about 35 in that area: D. In the settings I checked the locations and everything related to the location (via wifi, gsm and other dracovenii) and it still doesn't work. It would be great if he also had an option to lock the phone (if it is stolen)… but maybe in the future… maybe… :))

    Calin: Question Why use the phone ring? sounds great!

    Continued success! will follow in the UK!

    I use the default ringtone that comes with the operating system AOSP (Android's pure). Usually manufacturers branduiesc their devices and customize them replacing sounds default (basic) Android operating system with their desired and can be for you to have other rings (or rings) than the base that comes with Android site.
    I'm lucky to use a Google device that is part of the Nexus range. Even if my smartphone is made by samsung, they did not leave their "imprint" in customizing the operating system, my smartphone does not come with the TouchWiz interface as the other smartphones from Google.
    My device, because it is one from Google, from the Nexus range is in "control" and under the ownership of Google, which means that I run AOSP, pure Android with Vanilla interface, without customizations, without blotware applications, exactly as Google launches.
