Locate and Wipe your Lost android phone

We all know how to locate and wipe your lost Apple devices such as iPhone and iPad but how many of us know about how to locate and wipe our android phone? Here is a trick to do that. There are apps you can download to help in the event of a lost phone, but in order for them to work you need to have them installed before something bad happens.
1. Check to make sure you have "Android Device Manager" Installed in your device (https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager)
2.Go to https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager
3. Select your phone from the menu
4. Now you can see the location, ring it, lock it, or erase it

You don't even need to install anything on your Android in order to be trackable by the Device Manager. The app is useful to track *another* device.
