But this may not be same with everyone, Now, you may think that locking up your device is a solution to prevention of redistribution of your data, but that doesn’t mean that you are going to get your phone. if you lock your device the guy who found it might have problems contacting you, practically almost impossible if he doesn’t know you. But you you can get your lost Android phone back.

Google has come out with some help for the Android users, on the web with Android Device Manager. The web interface and the app has now a few more options. Just like before it has the option to force lock your device keeping all your contacts and media safe. Apart from that there is a new option.
