Android Device Manager Finally Gets Increased Security Measures with the Latest Update
The truth is Apple has set a very good example when it comes to mobile device security, allowing to track down through the web browser interface any lost device. And it has had this feature added to every device for years. In comparison it would seem Google finally woke up. But we’re glad that it did.
Android Device Manager is Google’s response towards stolen or lost devices. The app of witch we talked about not to long ago has managed to gather a good (towards surprising) number of users. In any case – like all things growing it has also had its good share of criticism. Fortunately these were not left unheard.
Towards tightening the security, Google has added the measure I wish it had implemented from the start. I’m talking about Password Protecting the app in a good tight manner. This applies every time the app is accessed or every time the account is switched. Besides there is a good number of bug fixes and the usual performance improvements. The update should reach everyone asap. In case you don’t have the app you can download it from the Store. This is one not to be missed!
