Happy New Year everyone! Now I’m no psychic but I do know that two following things are absolutely true.
- It’s 2014
- You, or someone you know of, lost their phone last night
If you have an Android device you absolutely have nothing to fear. If you have one a newer device (Jelly Bean 4.1 and above) then most likely Android Device Manager has been enabled for you. In the event that you absolutely have no idea what I’m referring to, the steps look something like this:
If you’ve never seen this screen before you still shouldn’t be worried. By default this option should already be checked off. Now all you need to do is head over to the Manage My Device page and use the location feature to find it. From there you’ll be able to make your smartphone ring, change the lock screen settings and even wipe your device.
A cab, the bar, somewhere on a random street…it could be anywhere. If your phone ends up in some crazy unexpected place, feel free to let me know in the comments!
