    i know that lollipod comes with a buildin opt-in kill switch. After searching the web and find no article mentions the way to use it.
    Will someone please tell me how to activate and use this new feature, thank you !

    Gekko is right. The Kill switch is one of several features that seem to be missing from the initial release of Lollipop. Universal Data controls is another thing that Sundar Pichai had talked about in Google I/O and that hasn't made it into Lollipop yet.

    The Android Device manager that Gekko linked to works good. Or you can try Cerberus if you want a little more control.

    i'm not sure i want a kill switch. because if i kill the phone i will never be able to locate it. it may discourage theft but may hamper retrieval if lost and found.
