We have to know that the Android Device Manager has been around for more than two years now. The Google’s app is specially designed for almost all modern Android devices through the magic of official Play Services. The Device Manager tool is usually switched on by default. However, some Android smartphones do not work that way. So, if it is not work automatically on our smartphones, we can easily enable it by from Google Settings on our Android smartphone. Device Manager requires two different things before we can use it for locating a lost phone. First, the smartphone needs to have remote location enabled we can find in Google Settings - Android Device Manager - Remotely Locate This Device. Then, it also needs to have location access on, so it would not work if the Android Device Manager Location access is turned off. We can make sure or enable the location access via Google Settings - Location. When the settings are disabled, the Device Manager app would not be able to locate our lost device.
Android Device Manager also works for Android tablets. However, if we have some user accounts, only the owner of the tablet can activate the app features. We can access Android Device Manager in two ways, which are using the same app on another Android device or accessing the official website of the app. Once we have launched the Device Manager app or logged in on its website, the Android Device Manager will automatically attempt to locate the missing device. When the device is on and get a signal, we will see the location on a map. So, it is something dangerous if the Android Device Manager Location access is turned off.
