    In order to check if this feature is enabled, you should access the Settings menu on your device, tap Security, find a Device administrators setting and after tapping on it you should see the Android Device Manager. You can enable it by tapping on the checkbox near it. After enabling the feature, you will be able to see the handset or tablet on the web interface shown in the pic above.

    You can also perform a remote wipe of the device, ring it at full volume for 5 minutes or track its location on Google Maps. The service also supports multiple Android devices tracking and there’s a drop down menu, so you can rename your device through it. Keep in mind that location tracking is not available if the Google location settings haven’t been enabled.
