Question

How can I lock my Android device remotely?

Answer

If you have lost your mobile device or it has been stolen, you can lock it remotely to prevent anyone from using it. This requires, however, that you have set up the remote Anti-Theft.

 

When you lock your device remotely, it cannot be used without your permission.

 

To lock your lost or stolen device:

  1. Send the following SMS message to your device:
    #LOCK#<security code>
    (Example: #LOCK#abcd1234)

The locked device can be unlocked only with the screen unlock pattern, pin or password that you have specified.
