    Is there any way to secure the phone in case it gets lost, so that the person who finds that phone cannot use it anyway and it becomes useless ( for android). My phone moto g4 plus is lost and it's also encrypted.If the phone is locked by android device manager can it be unlocked by factory reset?

    Which version of Android is your moto g4 plus on when you bought it? Since Android 5.1, mobile phone is protected by FRP (Factory Reset Protection) by default when a user set up the phone with Google account. With FRP, people who get your phone can not access it without password even if after doing a factory reset. If you have set up Google account and did not remove it, there is nothing to be worried.

    Initially, my phone had marshmallow while getting lost it had nougat. But I changed the password of my google account will it affect the security?
    Despite FRP, is there any way the person can use my phone?

    As long as you didn't remove your Google account, FRP should still work.
    As far as I know, people cannot use your phone normally without password. Maybe other people have their opinions.
