Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

Making sure your device is protected

Your device includes security options, strongly recommended in case of loss or theft.

When using a security option to protect your device, it is crucial to remember the details provided at set up.

Screen lock

Set a secure screen lock on your device using a PIN, password, pattern or to prevent others from using your device without permission. Once the screen lock is set, it is not possible to unlock the screen or erase the content via a Factory Data Reset without providing the screen lock information.

If you add your contact information on the screen lock, for example your email, this information can be used to get your device back if you lose it.

Google account

Add a Google account so that you can use the Find my device service. In some situations, you may also need to identify yourself for security reasons using your Google account.

Find my device

Use the Find my device service to remotely locate, lock, unlock or erase the content on a lost device. After you have signed in to your Google account, Find my device is turned on by default.


Back up the content on your device in case your device is damaged, lost or stolen. See Backing up and restoring content on your device.
