Google has added a security feature for android devices through Android Device Manager which is available in Google settings app. Now, you can track your lost phone and erase, lock or factory reset it using android device manager. To enable this feature, you should tick the two boxes in the android device manager.
To track and lock your device, go to android device manager website. Sign in using the gmail account which you used in your android smart phone. Now, you will be able to see the device name in the dashboard. Click ‘locate device’ to see the accurate location on Google Map. There are options like ring(device rings at full volume for 5 minutes), ‘lock’ where you can set your new lock password and ‘erase’ through which you can fully delete the apps, photos, music, settings, etc. But, the files in your SD card cannot be deleted through android device manager.
