Android locator wipe

 

Google announced last week that it would release a new locator feature for Android devices called Android Device Manager, which helps owners find their lost or stolen phones and tablets. It was supposed to roll out later this month, but in a Google+ posting Wednesday , Google announced its immediate availability.

The feature works similarly to other locator services, like Lookout and Samsung's Find My Mobile , but now you get the feature natively on your Android device. Here's how to get started with Android Device Manager:

On your Android device, go to the Google Settings app, then tap on Android Device Manager. The locator feature is enabled by default, but to enable remote data wipe, tap on the box next to "Allow remote factory reset," then tap "Activate."
