"Where's my Android device?"

Reviewed by / Jan 23, 2014

Control the device and find it when it's lost

Android Device Manager is a helpful application for Android users that allows you to retrieve your device when you can't find it anywhere.

The app uses your Google account information as well as the location to point you at the direction where your phone might be. When you've activated this service, you can make it ring to find it quickly or block all the accounts and start erasing all the data in case you suspect it has been stolen.

ADM is a simple but useful tool that can be of great help in these situations.

Android Device Manager was developed by Google Inc. Of course, it could have more features, but it's an effective tool with high usability and a clean design.

Developer's original description available here
Ever misplaced or lost your phone? Android Device Manager locates lost devices and helps you keep your device—and the data inside it—safe and secure. Android Device Manager lets you:

● Locate Android devices associated with your Google account
● Reset your device's screen lock PIN
● Erase all data on the phone

Recently changed in this version

● Option to set a 'call me back' phone number to recover a lost device
● Bug fixes and performance improvements

    I've been using AVG for this service in case I lost or misplace my phone and it is much better than this stock app. Rooms for improvements! Add in more features to totally lock the phone and can only be activated by inserting the correct account. Also add in the feature to leave a msg on the lock screen.
