My android cell phone was lost an year ago. But I can see someone has started using it, and that person has not yet removed my email ID. I am looking for a way to turn ON the location services of the device to get the approximate location of the phone. Is there any way to turn ON the location services of the device remotely?

I thought of using OLA can app. But it is too heavy, I am looking for a light weight app available on play store.

  • This may be helpful if you can not find your phone back but want to avoid your google account id to be used on that phone: With this link myaccount.google.com/device-activity you can choose which devices can access or not to your google account. – Benoit Feb 23 '17 at 10:11
  • Yes i am using same for loacting phone... but i somehow want to turn ON gps so as to get accurate results... – Surendra Patil Feb 23 '17 at 10:13

Maybe Android Device Manager could be helpful.

I hope it can help you.
