We all use smartphones and personally it hurts when your device gets missing most especially if the phone is expensive. Today i'll be dropping a tutorial on how to track down your lost device.

However , this method of locating your device only works if,

1. Your Data Connection Was Turned On Before It Got Missing Or Stolen.

2. Your Android Device Manager Working Properly
( Most devices have Android Device Manager pre-installed  If you are using a custom rom that does not have android device manager , you have just lost your phone,
 probably forever)
 If You Don't Have Android device manager it won't work.

3. You Have A Google Account

Why you should have Android Device Manager On Your Phone?

Android Device Manager Can Lock Your Phone Remotely And Wipe Your data making the device useless for the thief , Restoring the factory settings won't unlock the phone.

In order to safeguard your device and set  up Android Device Manager ,Follow the steps below.

  •  Install Android Device Manager Here
  • Go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators
  • Set Android Device Manager as administrator
  • Launch Android Device Manager and Sign In With Your Google Account
