The 2nd part of the Android Instrument Supervisor seems adore it’s slowly going reside
We noticed the Android Device Manager, Google’s find (and wipe) my phone utility, starting to push out it’s phone component over the weekend, and today the web interface is live for some folks. It’s the second piece of the puzzle you’ll need to remotely manage your lost or stolen Android, and something Google has let third-parties handle until now.
The web address is https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager?u=0, and if available for your account will require you to be signed into Google on a modern web browser. I’m lucky enough to have everything working with mine, but reports from the rest of the AC staff range from partial completeness to nothing yet.
With the new service, you can locate your phone or tablet on a map, send a command to ring the ringer at full volume for five minutes (don’t try this with the HTC One if canines or babies are round), ship a notification to the software to provoke setup, and as soon as correctly set-up wipe your entire private knowledge off the lacking instrument.
We will play with this for a bit of, and I’m going to even sacrifice my Plague, Inc. knowledge to check the far flung wipe characteristic. Within the interim, see just a few screenshots after the spoil. Remember to holler if you are seeing the Android Instrument Supervisor continue to exist your Google account.
