Android phone is now popular and more powerful to the extent that most people now use their hard-earned Monthly salary to buy.
The sad news here is that even after spending such huge amount of money to buy the phone, They lose or misplace the phone.
Just last week one of my friends came to me and she looks so sad when I ask her what is the problem. She said that she lost her phone and that she was suspecting her friend. And her fear is that she doesn’t want her friend to see her personal details on the phone.
I tried to remotely reset the phone to factory setting using my PC but unfortunately I was not successful because there are some security settings she did not turn on before the phone was stolen.
She is not the only one. Sometimes we tend to misplace our phone or it can even be stolen from us at a gunpoint. A close relative, friend or an enemy may steal our phone either to get hold of our personal information or to blackmail us.

Now Google has a feature called Android device manager or device administrator which left you to keep control over your device when you misplace or lose it.
