    Default Find my Phone App

    I couldn't find an actual answer to my question on other threads so I'll ask it here. I'm trying to find an alternative to the "Lookout" app which can find and erase my info in case I ever lose it. Lookout eats up my battery quickly so I'm looking for one which doesn't eat much battery up but still gets the job done. I wish there was something like Find my iPhone where its hardly takes up any battery.

    Android Device Manager is aready built into your phone.

    Make sure it's activated in your Google Settings. And make sure it's checked under Device Administrators. Then go here: https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager

    If you want to control other devices, you can also download the app from the play store. But you don't need that app to use it on your Note 3 since it is built-in.

    Thanks you're a life saver. Never would have known about this unless you told me. So far so good as it hasn't been eating battery like Lookout. I'm going to uninstall Lookout now.

    ADM and AL are tops. I prefer AL (does a lot more). Also check out Cerberus. Very good as well.
