In the office's washroom, at the shop's billing counter, in the autorickshaws and there are so many other places where we often tend to leave and forget our mobile phones. And if that happens, it often results in sleepless nights as you just can't stop your brain from picturing some unknown eyes scrolling through your personal photos or messages. Nightmare!
Solution? One could just roll over and try to sleep. But a better one is to lock your phone wherever you left it. However, to do it, you will have to prime your phone for it, prepare it for such eventualities.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Open Google settings from apps menu on your latest version of Android.
2. Click security
3. Switch on the 'Remotely locate this device' and 'allow remote lock and erase' tabs.
Once these options are enabled, you will be able to lock your phone using Google account on a web browser.
To do that, just log into Google and on Google search page write: "find my phone"
Once Google has located your phone, you will be able to lock it and even erase its data remotely.
