Android device manager helps you locate your gear


Android device of yours is lost? Couldn’t find it? Do not worry Google will locate your device for you using the Android device manager feature. This was initially introduced by Apple by there Find My iPhone, Although it is a late catch up Google it works really well. You can remotely ring your Android device and you can also wipe all the date in your device, but you cannot kill your device  🙁

So lets get started

Before you do anything make sure you put a screen lock to your device.

In order to Achieve this make sure that always GPS is switched on your Android device. You can do this in 2 ways.
 
1. From the drop down short cut menu
