Remotely Lock and Wipe Your Samsung Galaxy S4

Questions and Answers

My Samsung S4 was stolen today. I did not have remote lock and wipe-out?

Can I remotely wipe out my phone? I have logged onto My Device Manager. The location is currently unavailable because GPS was turned off. The only options I have are "Enable Lock" and "Erase". How do I actually ensure that the information will be erased?

If you click "Erase" and "Erase" again, the device will be either wiped out immediately or after it goes online. You can log into My Device Manager to check the status of your smartphone. Once you cannot control the device at all, the information will have been deleted. It is not recommended to use remote factory-reset from both My Device Manager and Find My Mobile, so just use My Device Manager and hope for the best.
