    DON'T use Android Device Manager by Google

    Hello all,

    We are taking a trip and I'll be bringing my tablet to keep in touch with family. Because I'm travelling with it, I wanted to test out how good Android Device Manager worked. Here's what I can do:

    • Locate your android and show you on Google maps it's estimated location, which I have to say is very accurate.
    • It can "ring" your android at full volume so that if you misplace it, you can find it. All you do is go online with another device/computer and send the ring function from Android Device Manager. Works great.
    • You can lock your android and even change the password. HERE'S where you have to be careful. I tried this feature and now CANNOT unlock it. Tons of people are having the same problem on all makes of androids. If you use the "lock" feature, be prepared to reset/restore your android.
    • It can erase your android. Totally.



    The reason for my warning is that one would think if you have a choice of "lock" or "erase", you would assume that if you choose the "lock" feature, you'd be able to unlock it.

    That is intended to be used if your tablet is lost or stolen. Seems to me it did exactly what it was designed to do. It never would have occurred, to me, that I should intentionally test it out.
