Turn on Android Device Manager

Before you can use Android Device Manager, you have to enable it on your device and associate your device with your Google account. If more than one person uses a tablet, only the tablet owner can turn on Android Device Manager.

Remotely locate this device. You can use Android Device manager to show your device’s location. Check the box next to “Remotely locate this device” to allow Android Device Manager to show your device’s location on Android Device Manager.
For devices running 4.1 and higher: Location access must also be turned on. To turn it on, go to Google Settings > Location and turn the switch next to “Location” to On. When the dialog box appears, read the text and touch Agree to turn on location access.
     

Allow remote lock and factory reset. You can use Android Device Manager to remotely lock your device, erase everything on it, or change the lock screen passcode. Touch the box next to “Allow remote lock and factory reset.” When the “Activate device administrator” screen appears, read the text and touch Activate to turn on the device administrator.
