Is there a way like how Apple has icloud but for Android where if you lose your phone someone is not able to wipe it and then resell/reuse it?

And does Android also have builtin tracking like how iCloud does too?

Android does have similar tracking/security features that you can access remotely if you lose your phone. They call it Android Device Manager. I do not know which Android phones have this built in. If it is not built in to your phone, you can download the app.

To locate your phone, simply visit this link and log into your Google account.

I know that the application supports:

  • Locate Android devices associated with your Google account
  • Reset/Enable your device's screen lock PIN
  • Erase all data on the phone
  • Ring the phone for 5 minutes if you've misplaced it
  • I'm fairly sure that Android Device Manager is built into almost every newer (jellybean and up) android phone.
