On that note. All Android phones should have Android Device Manager enabled. Can track, brick, and wipe phone if necessary. Better safe than sorry.
Google's Find My Phone - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.adm&hl=en
I cannot believe how many Android users have skipped this app during their setting up of the phone. More often than not, they realize how useful it would have been only after losing the phone.
As long as it has internet access, you can:
1) Track your phone
2) Make your phone ring (loud)
3) Erase the phone or lock the phone
If you have the app installed and need to find your phone, all you need to do is search for "Find my phone" on Google. It will do the rest for you.
If you have an Android phone, install the app and set it up. It is super useful.
First of all, get the info to the police. This is not a matter that you should handle alone.
Next, if the Nexus is still connected to your account then you can try remotely installing Android Device Manager, Lost Android
or any such app to get a location that you can give to the police.
Oder wer ein Android Gerät hat einfach den eingebauten Geräte-Manager benutzen.
Am aller besten ist jedoch Cerberus, weil Cerberus auch einen factory reset überlebt und verhindern kann, dass das Gerät ausgeschaltet wird.
Load one of the "mosquito" ringtones that only young kids can hear, set it as your hangouts/chat/messaging tone.
Install an app like Google "Find my Device" app. Allow it to use the tablets GPS (if it has one).
Most devices have it installed by default and offers some basic uses by Google - [link]
or there is Cerberus - [link]
A little more advance.
What's wrong with Android's built in one? It's free and works perfectly. Find My Device
Edit: Personally would not want to pay a yearly fee to a company/ Dev that doesn't respond to support messages.
Google's Find My Device should be good enough for probably almost everyone also. Works with your current Google account too.
While not on set times, the easy way would be Find My Device.
A free option that lets you set it by time, text message received (from just you, even), movement, cell tower change, geofences, screen off/on, etc: MacroDroid.
You could accomplish this with pretty much any automation app, I'd assume. Tasker, Automate, Autoset, etc.
You'd have to hide the app, the notifications from the app, and/or the messages sent/logs kept or the person would see it.
If you haven't already, you might be able to remotely install Android Device Manager and then use it to locate the device. First link for installing, second for querying.
Best of luck, some people are scum.
Android Device Manager.
Cu Cerberus poți înregistra audio/video la comandă, poți porni serviciile de date și WiFi cu un SMS și, dacă schimbă SIM-ul, primești SMS cu noul număr.
If you have Google 'Find My Device' set up as an administrator, then you should be able to login to 'Find My Device' and change the password remotely... If you know the password to that Google account.
Your option to pick would be 'Secure my phone.'
The earlier link from how-to-geek, is flawed in my opinion, because I do not know of any function in Smart Lock that unlocks the phone when you attach to a certain Wifi network. As far as I know, Smart Lock keeps the phone unlocked if it is already unlocked, under certain conditions, but doesn't proactively unlock the phone. Smart Lock has never done that, to my knowledge.
Find My Device will.
First thing's first, file a police report. Go to an actual police station and tell them what happened and you can make a statement.
Next, does the phone not have a remote locate feature? Unfortunately on Android this still isn't a stock feature, you need to download this first. If not, let this be a lesson to set it up next time.
Finally, while you will have told the police, there's fuck all they'll do to help. Not because they don't want to, but because they've had continual budget cuts and their numbers are dwindling, which has fucked the country's crime statistics.
Get Find My Device from the play store. Works straight from your browser by typing "find my phone". Can also ring your phone if you can't find it in the house.
There is a way. If you install the app Find my Device from Google (formerly Device Manager) It lets you track and remote lock it or delete all data.
However, of course the Chromebook has to be turned on and have access to the internet :/
You can also manage it from a browser then here
Download the "find my phone" app
Or search on google "find my phone google"
Connect to your google account and try find your phone's last known location.
If you can't, you can use the app/website to remotely lock your phone and rase all of your data
Edit: if you have samsung account you can use it too to find/backup your data
Sure thing! That's pretty crazy battery drain and that's is probably true for many people I feel. This one isn't as obvious since it doesn't show up under battery usage and probably gets missed. You can use Google Find My Device instead for remote device wiping/locating. I use that and Prey.
Posso solo darti un consiglio, sul suo cellulare puoi impostare un account secondario creato per l'esigenza di gmail, sperando abbia un android.
Lo stesso account lo logghi sul tuo cellulare, sul tuo installi Trova Dispositivo e mentre è distratto fai una rilevazione, che emette una notifica sul suo cellulare, che devi nascondere cliccandoci sopra con una pressione prolungata, e modificare le impostazioni di notifica per l'app in modo che lui non possa sapere che tu lo tracci.
Poco legale ma penso sia necessario visto che è per il suo bene...
Hi! Sorry to hear about this. Your IMEI should be printed onto the SIM card tray. Alternatively, if you install Googles "Find My Device" app onto another Android phone and log in, you should also be able to find your IMEI there as well. If Nokia can't prove that you're at fault for the issue (drop damage, water damage etc.), and your phone is still within the warranty period, the entitled repair (or replacement, if you live in the EU) should be free. Best of luck with everything, and feel free to ask me any question. :)
It doesn't look like the device is linked to your Google Account anymore. This is just Chrome, which should also be logged out if you changed your password. Since the account is no longer linked to the phone you probably can't factory reset it, but you can try by using the Find My Device app.
One final suggestion... try using this app on your S6: [link] It seemed to give slightly more accurate results than the web interface in my test just now.
Yep, you just go there: [link]
You also have a Google app if you have other android devices. It's similar to the iCloud solution.
as for finding phones, don't forget that
exist. They need to be properly setup of course. Saved my ass two times already
If she will have data coverage/access: Find My Device or location sharing.
If she will have SMS or call coverage/access and no data: an automation app, like Automate. You can set it up on her phone to text/email you her location automatically if you text her a specific word/phrase. You could also set it up to know when she leaves/arrives within a predefined area (geofence), such as her hotel. You could also set it up to alert you if she is travelling at a certain speed, like walking or driving.
Google has a Android device manager app. You log into your Gmail account you use on your phone from a browser or another Android device. You can lock, locate or erase your phone or any other device you have associated with your Gmail account.
play store link
Search: find my phone
Prerequisite is install and enable Android Device Manager on your phone to be able to lock or ring the device. Location should work without that as long as GPS/device location is enabled first.
Google's own Android device manager is available in app form. Otherwise you can also access via a web browser.
Link for convenience
Même affaire sur Android mais avec une app/site Google au lieu d'Apple.
Tu l'installe ici, pis tu vas chercher là.
Si tu l'installes sur plusieurs appareil, ils peuvent se chercher les uns les autres.
One of the cool features of Android phones is the ability to install apps remotely from the browser google play store. Go to [link] and select install and then choose the phone that was stolen to install too. As long as the device is still signed in to your google account and power on and connected to the internet through wifi or 4G the app will install and then you can use DanGarion's link to find your phone.
There's a web version, there's apps.
Basically enable this on your phone and whenever you need to locate it use the app/site from another device. Login with your details and you'll see all your devices linked to that Google account.
Relevant support thread: [link]
Then sign in with his Gmail account and he should be able to track the device provided it's still powered on and connected to service. That being said, just be aware that the police are unlikely to act on this knowledge (at least in the US).
No need to test, this only works on Android. You need to be logged in your G Account on the browser you are doing the search too. The app that makes this possible is Find my Device by Google, which comes preinstalled on most if not all Android phones.
I found this after some Google search:
If the Device is connected to internet,
Reset Device using Find my device/ Android Device manager remotely,
Install Find my device App in any Android phone,
Open the App> Select Account Or SIGN IN AS GUEST,
Sign in with any of the Account which is currently existing in the Locked phone,
Select the Device from top bar,
Go to Erase data option and finish the process,
Google Find My Device (Play store) allow you to ring your phone even in mute/silent mode.
you can also borrow someones phone and get them to install [link]
which you can then login to temporarily as a guest so it wont save login/start to sync your data to their device and use that to view google maps to see where your device is and to make it ring super loud/wipe device/etc so you dont have to use chrome on someones phone and risk having your password saved/data synced or dont have to wait to get home to a desktop/laptop.
it will also let you leave a msg on the lock screen with contact info!
Their is a way. It's long shot. If person that's been kidnapped has a Google account and their phone is tied to their account the you can log into Google via any where and search for phone. If that person has their phone with them and is still active. You might have a shot. The only thing is you must know the username and password of the Google account.
Here is the link. ..
If you or any one life in a country that has high crime and kidnapping. This tool can be useful in an fast action to find a person or people.
Any one who needs help installing how to work this app. just pm me
It's good for a parents mind to know where their children are.
If you just type find my phone into Google, it shows where every phone that has that Google account logged into with options to make it ring, secure it and more. I'm pretty sure it works with iPhones to. There is also an app for it
App Link : [link]
As a workaround use: [link]
It will ring continuously until you stop it, and at max volume even if it's on Silent/Vibrate or the volume is turned down.
There's also an official app if you don't want to use the web interface and you have another Android device: [link]
not totally sure, but as long as the phone is locked, and data is turned on, you can remotely control and locate your phone, in case of loss or theft. this means you can also turn on gps remotely, so you don't necessarily have to turn on gps/location permanently.
all you have to do is log into your account, or go directly to this page:
or install the app:
and go from there.
hope this helps!
The 4G version can function as a completely standalone android device. You can make/receive calls, text, and you can locate it via GPS. For instance using googles own Find My device App.
My phone, my watch, my daughters phone, and both my kids tablets are all logged in to my google account, meaning that I can locate all of them easily with the Find My Device App.
Find My Device
It's not necessary, though. However, it makes accessing the related settings easy so you may want to download it to help resolve your problems.
I think cerberus is free?
Also Google FInd My Device is the consumer version of the app:
FWIW, G-Suite is a lot more than just remote wipe. Consider moving your whole infrastructure (email, documents, calendaring, storage) to G Suite for unified login and management...
You need to give permission for it to work. Depending on the permission you give the app it can do a lot more than just limit data. Android device manager which is also an app can lock and erase your phone if you give permission
Regarding size, this will be beneficial: [link]
Find My Phone on Android is called Android Device Manager: [link] Though you can install whatever lost prevention app you prefer. I personally like Cerberus.
Root your phone, Unlock your phone, install whatever software you want, it's android, there's no limitations like the iOS jailbreaks.
For simplicity, the number is 1-877-632-0463, and there hours are 7am-11pm EST.
As for device manager, I don't think it's installed by default on any phone unfortunately. You can always try locating the phone anyways via the site ([link]), but it it wasn't installed your probably out of luck. On the site, log in using the Gmail that's was on the phone.
Going forward, install and set up device manager on any phone you get. It may not always work but at least it raises your chances of locating a lost phone. Bonus feature is you can remotely make your phone ring even if sound is disabled, useful when you misplace your phone in your home.
As for the Samsung account, cant really help you there since I don't own a Samsung phone. I just know they have a similar feature built in to a lot of there phones, but u need an account.
You are correct. In order to track your phone you don't need to install anything. The tracking stuff is already built-in as long as you have checked in settings "allow apps to access my location". To track the phone you use Android Manager on the web: [link]
The Android Manager app can be used to track other phones from your phone. Can be useful for tracking kids, work phones etc. so it's probably not useful if you don't have a family Google account or Google Apps.
Okay maybe we need to step back a step do you have device manager installed by Google ? In the Play Store if you don't have it installed Android device manager
Locate Your Android Device: Android Device Manager
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
How do you mean locate? If you mean "make noise at full volume (even if muted) as long as it's on with some form of data connection" the official Android Device Manager can do that as well as setting up a lock or erasing, you'll need the password to a Google account on the device of course, and I haven't actually tried it on a tablet, but worth a shot. Can use it from the app or a Web interface [link]
EDIT it also has a location services locate, but I'm assuming the device doesn't have a GPS unit, though it may. If not you'd only be able to narrow it down based on the wifi it's connected to
That's probably Android Device Manager. I love that, it does it's job, but I use Cerberus for tracking all my devices. I just want a feature feature rich tracker for my watch.
Google offers Android Device Manager which lets you locate your device, reset your pin, and erase all data on the device.
Your best bet is Android Device Manager:
Through a browser: [link]
Using an app on another device: [link]
Have her sign in to her Google account (the same one that was first, and still is, signed in to on the phone). If ADM was added as a Device Administrator earlier on her phone (which again, it should be by default on newer Android versions) it can lock the device remotely and set a new unlock PIN to whatever she chooses (using the Lock command).
Android Device Manager is part of the Google Play Services, meaning it's an official feature of Android by Google, kinda like Find my iPhone. It can remotely lock (and set a new PIN/password), locate, ring, and wipe (as soon as the device gets an Internet connection) a device and is bundled in most newer versions of Android that have the Google Play Store.
While initially Google doesn't have access this is true. My thought though is that if you use the Google Device Manager, then Google can unlock it upon request.
The Device Manager/Tracker/Unlocker/Ringer/Wiper is a 100% Google product tied to your account. If the DOD/NSA/DOJ/CDC, or what ever, had a court order then they could use Device Manager to do it.
Android Device Manager, which you might already have on your phone, has an option to ring your phone.
If you don't have this app, install it - it can help track down your phone, lock it, and even erase it.
Did you try the using the lost phone app through google play? Allows you to remotely install app and track your phone for the play store. It's pretty accurate too. Talking down to the foot location.
Edit: added google app for lost phone link
Find my device is built into all Android phones.
Android device manager. Its an official app/service from google.
Android Device Manager
Login > Three Dots menu > Rename did it for me.
First app to set up, Find My Device.
Similar app to 'Find my iPhone' from Google itself. - Find My Device- they renamed it. It's original name was 'Android Device Manager'.
Other options - These apps have more functions compared to 'Find my iPhone' & 'Find My Phone' from google.
Cerberus - Trial + Paid. - Best Anti-theft app.
Lost Android - free - Best FREE anti-theft app for android
Where's my droid? - free+ paid
Trickle my Phone - free + iap/2 $ fee
All these apps works even when device is not connected to internet. You can control your phone using text message.
You won't be able to track iPhone from these apps because of apple's restriction. Use Find my iPhone for iphone.
These apps can track multiple phones & Play Sound. In some apps device may use their own account. You can juat log in from that account & control it.
Before you buy any app , Enable ' Family Library' from your playstore app. (Search about it). So, that you can also share that paid app to other devices.
Google maps provides, ' Share my location' feature. You can share location with your selected contacts. So, I think this method will work for getting location from iphone,too. Just add google account in Google maps app.
Google also has this one app. It is also very useful. Google trusted Contacts.
Enable location history for every device & every google account. That way you will get accurate location & you can see location history of that device at particular date & time.( You need to keep GPS enabled & Never Disable it for that functionality.)

Further, you can install a couple of other apps which do the same thing but have extra functionality and may help
I think Google Find My Device unmutes the phone in addition to playing the alarm
Why do you want to do this?
Do you have this installed on the phone?
Find my device by google isn't bad
Literally called find my device: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.adm
There's a built in android one also I'll grab a link
If you allow Google location services, their "find my device" app seems in my experience to work well.
Sign in with your phone to his Google account/sign in to your account for his device and use Android Device Manager
I'd agree with mrandr01d here. As for your issue, I'd factory reset the phone, use a lock code/fingerprint, use Find My Device/Google's location sharing for location tracking/inquiries (or an automation app), and use an automaton app for the rest. Set the automaton app to save (to GMail, for instance) or forward incoming and outgoing texts involving the father. Set it to take and save (GMail, DropBox, whatever) pictures when lock code is entered/settings are opened/app drawer opened/Play Store (since you can uninstall from there)/whatever. Disable notifications for this stuff, obviously. Hide the app in the app drawer or rename and change the icon to something innocuous. If you are extra paranoid and don't mind making the phone more annoying to use for its owner, the child, remove location, airplane, WiFi, and mobile data quick setting tiles so the settings app must be opened to alter those settings, triggering your picture automation.
You don't really need to go any more complex than that because there's only one suspect. You don't need to use hidden folders for "security" pictures (unless you really want to, I guess) because being caught tampering once is enough, no? Honestly, just the text archiving is enough since that seems to be the main issue. If something gets changed, disappears, or appears, you know what happened so there's no need for root level stuff. And if you ever get paranoid there's something unseen that has slipped by you, check for root and factory reset.
MacroDroid, AutoMate, AutoMagic.
> You don't need a "find my device" app.
Are you sure? [link] Google has a find my device app.
Actually you can do it from an app on Androids too!
Don't think there's a way to do this natively but you can wipe it remotely with android device manager.
Check out Android device manager
Yes they can [link]
Change your password with Find my device from Google:
Open the link in Windows >Chrome> Google,
Google "Find my Device". But it will need to be installed on both phones.
Its this app for android users
Copying a comment from u/ImABritishGuy
Hijacking to try and get attention to this:
I encourage all users who have been fucked over by this company to leave a review for their company trading under "LSDroid S.R.L"
Google Reviews (Currently at 1.3 stars with 14 reviews)
TrustPilot Reviews (Currently at 1.5 stars with 23 reviews)
TrustPilot Reviews (Currently at 2.5 stars with 5 reviews)
Not all options have all of the features that we are used to with Cerberus, but yeah... just try and avoid actually paying for a license with LSDroid. Fuck them.

Do you mean a find my device alternative? You can always use Google's own
it's a separate app , the other guy is wrong.
How about Google's own app?
Check the Trusted Contacts app from Google
De pe alt mobil o poți folosi. Nu trebuie instalat nimic pe cel pierdut.
try Find my device: [link]
you can lock and even wipe your phone remotely if it's on and connected.
Battery Bank $10
Prepaid Cell Phone $20
Google's Find My Device App Free
Micro-USB Car Charger $7
Cigarette Socket Adapter $7
For $44 and 30 minutes to hide this behind the dash you can track your Jeep if it ever gets stolen. Just wire it up to a switched 12v source and then it only charges the bank while the jeep is running.
Throw $20 on the prepaid account which will last you a very long time since you're not going to be using the phone until you need to track it.
A hidden switch to cut power to the fuel pump would work great too. The thief would just think it's a POS and won't start.
Find my device app should show where it is [link]

I was able to install it on my Verizon note 8.

I don't think it's a bug.
It's like that in the official screenshots for the Find my Device app.
here's a link [link]
Can't remember if the app was pre-installed on Pixels out of the box, but Android has a stock solution: [Android app] [via the web]
There's also 3rd party options like Cerberus and Prey Project.
I feel like this is the appropriate place to post about Android Device Manager (App) and Prey

[link] Yes, this
or if you are on COS and logged in with your Cyanogen account, then you can use that.
If you find it, or replace it, make sure you are able to locate it again.
If you have an Android phone then you can use this app to track your phone.
[link] is the official Google version of 'find my phone'.
> phone theft would be a thing of the past if kill switches were put in place
It's funny you say that. They're mandated by law in the state of California as of July 1, 2015. As they've become more prevalent, some cities are starting to see a significant decline in phone theft. Android OS itself also includes a factory reset protection function as of Lollipop, and has always had Android Device Manager available (though that was opt-in). I don't own any iOS devices, but for those of you with iPhones, I think the equivalent function is "Find My iPhone" (which I do believe allows for remote wipes).
The problem is that it's still all "opt-in".
complementando, tem o Gerenciador de dispositivos Android.
You need to have Android Device Manager installed for it to show up on your watch
>I am on Android, and there's nothing like Find My iPhone that's as good
OP, use it wisely. Even if at a strip club.
lol, no probs. And yeah, ~~ADM~~ Find my Device is a rather sparse solution that Google should probably pull their finger out of their arse here, since these apps have pretty much every permission going/Device Admin.
Soluția pe care am găsit-o eu personal.
Pe lângă contul de google personal am instalat și contul de google al copilului.
E liber să se ducă unde vrea el dar să aibă GPS-ul activat și cu ajutorul aplicației Find My device selectând telefonul lui știu mereu unde este.
E mai complicat cum am făcut eu dar poate faci ceva asemănător, o zgardă GPS cu aplicația pusă pe telefonul mamei cred că ar fi OK.
