We are pretty sure that you do not know this, but thanks because the super snoops at Android police could spot it. Google Play Service – it is pretty much for everything Google will do on your Android – well, it is sneaky and also dangerous in order to change your Device Administrators. It means that it will disable Android Device Manager for Device Administrator. Clearly, you cannot access service’s remote lock and also wipe feature. Well, you cannot do anything if your phone gets stolen.
So, our question is why Google never tell us about this change? Whereas, there are overwhelming positive response for Android Device Manager in order to lock and wipe your phone when it is being stolen. It seems illogical, but maybe Google would not mind if this function has been turned off without our knowledge.
Luckily, it is easy for us to fix once when we know that it is a problem. So we would like you to read this post and get the ADM working again to your device. Do not forget to share it with your friends.
To fix this problem, go to your setting and then Apps. Scroll it down to Google Play Service and also check the update number first. If you think that you have the affected updates, go back to your Settings and Security to find out Device Administrators list. For your information, the affected updates are 18.104.22.168 and also 22.214.171.124 version.
Maybe you notice that Android Device Manager is disabled. It means that if your phone is stolen and you use ADM in order to wipe or lock your device, you will get it. Well, tick that box and keep sharing. Show everyone that they do not have to worry at all about this issue.
Fortunately not all are affected, even if we have GPS update, we did and ADM was disabled. That is why make sure first that you are protected. Keep an eye about the future updates since the change could affect you when the update comes on your device.
