kiwitrc: Its up and running. I can see my phone location and can delete my data, its pretty basic but I guess if you dont bother to get one of the more functional free ones or too tight to pay for something like Cerberus then its there. However you still need to give it Admin control under Settings / Security/ Device Administrators. Web page


It hasn't rolled out to my google apps yet. I wonder if we will get it. I am on the old free google apps.

I'm on the old free version as well. The notification states that it's only available on Google Apps for Business and Education customers. Didn't say anything about it coming to the free ones...

There was a note that the feature was rolled out to Google Apps on June 27 which is a while ago now. Hopefully it is a staged rollout. I can't see why we wouldn't get it.

I don't use google apps at all either and the web link works for me. It found my S4 (4.3) in about 15 seconds and I was able to call it and send a notification for remote wipe settings.

It didn't find my S3 or Galaxy tab as they haven't been turned on in a while.

Strangely, works fine with an older device I have with only free accounts loaded. Two devices with both free accounts and a paid account don't work. Will have a better look later




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

It's working fine for me, although I did notice that it says if you ring the phone then it'll ring for 5 minutes or until you press the power button on the phone. When I tried this is rang once on my S3 and that's it.

Has anyone got more than one device registered to their Google Account and got them both coming up?

I have two devices on the one account, but only my S3 (main device) is showing up.

That's interesting. Does this only work on devices with phone functionality? I have two Android devices, but the second one is a WiFi tablet.

Unsure, but I have 2x phones. One is a Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3 which is my primary phone.

The other is an Huawei Ideos X5 running Android 2.3 - which I believe is supported.
