Why Do I need to activate device administrator to use Find Phone feature?
Find Phone relies on some features provide by Android Device Administration API, e.g. Erase all data (allows you to erase all data when you cannot get your lost device back), Monitor screen-unlock attempts (allows you to take photos of the people who attempts to unlock your device but failed), etc.
Failed to locate my device?
AirDroid cannot provide you with the location of your device? The location of your device is not correct?
Please follow the following troubleshooting steps:
1. check if Google map is working normally on your Android device.
2. make sure that you have turned on access to my location, GPS satellites and Wi-Fi & mobile network location in Settings >Location access.
Due to the fragmentation of Android, "Find Phone" might not work as expected on some Android devices. But our team are working on this all the time and trying to make improvements in every update.
