I am living in Afghanistan and here too many things get stolen every day especially mobile phones. Therefore, I want to know a way that if my phone gets stolen, it gets destroyed.

Is there any possible way I could do this?

  • The answer Below is good. I personally hope you mean get the thing to blow up, but that would be hard :) – Dan Brown Oct 29 '16 at 19:20
  • Why not consider encryption? – SarpSTA Aug 29 '17 at 6:04

No, I do not think there is a possible way to remotely completely destroy a phone, but other things you could do are:

  • Track and find your lost phone
  • Lock it (Put a remote password so the thief cannot access it)
  • Ring it (Make it make a loud sound so if the thief is nearby, you will notice)
  • Wipe it (Delete everything on the phone except the OS)

You can do all of these things through the Google Device Manager or another anti-theft Play Store application but they require your phone to be turned on and it to have an internet connection.
