Don't Forget to Set Up Android Device Manager Before You Lose Your Phone

By Sam Gibbs on at

Google's new "Find my Android" Device Manager service has gone live, complete with the capability to do a full remote wipe of your device if it gets pinched. It's a great idea, and something Android's needed for ages now; just don't forget to actually activate it, before you leave your phone in a cab, or at a bar, or get mugged playing Ingress. It could save your bacon.
