Have you enabled the 'Android Device Manager' on your phone? This is a vital tool if your phone is lost or stolen and is found on many Android phones. If your device is lost or stolen you can track its location. Additionally, you have the ability to erase the data stored on your phone. If you have misplaced your phone and know it is in close enough range to hear it ring, you can activate the ringer and it will ring for five minutes to assist you in locating it. The Android Device Manager is a necessity for security purposes. This device is not available on all Android phones.
