  • Google has just released on the Play Store a brand new Android app, that can track the location of lost Android devices. The app works just like the web based service and allows users to see the location of any device that they have associated to their Google account.

    You can also phone the device, perform a remote wipe or factory reset if need be. The app is useful if the user has just figured out that he lost his phone and he has access to some other mobile Android device that he can use to clear up his lost or stolen handset. The app is available for free in the Google Play Store and you can download it here.

    Another thing you can do here is reset the PIN that locks your handset, if you feel it’s not safe enough. You can make your device ring at full volume for 5 minutes and only pressing the power button will stop that. You can also lock and erase the handset from the distance. Feeling safer now?
