Remotely lock your Android tablet or phone

Remotely lock an Android tablet or phone.

If you have lost or misplaced your Android tablet or phone, you may want to remotely lock it to prevent someone from seeing your stuff.  Google has made available a nice feature to help with your Android phone, tablet, etc.  The Android Device Manager will do the following:

** In order to use the remote lock, you must first activate this feature on the device.  This is how you do that:
  • From any PC, go to Android Device Manager and login using your Google login ID.
  • If you have multiple Android devices registered with Google, you will need to click on the small down arrow to select the device you want to activate.
  • Click on Setup Lock & Erase
  • You need to send a notification to the device to activate the feature, click on the Send button.
  • Go to the device and look in the notifications section to see the request, click on OK

Now the feature is activated to remotely lock, reset, wipe, or change the device.

To use the Android Device Manager, you can access the web version using this link:  Android Device Manager or you can download the app to your Android device from the Google Playstore: Android Device Manager App
