Left my Samsung Galaxy S III on the bus :'(

I left my Samsung Galaxy S III on the bus last night :'( It's insured though, so could be worse! But I'm wondering ... could someone access my stuff if they guess the password? Is there any way I can wipe the data remotely?

its still possible to do.

first download android lost from apstore
and secondly do androidlost jumpstart from play store.
then just wait for someone to play with it.

u will be able to remotewipe it soon.

Sorry to hear that. If you haven't set up remote wipe, it's unfortunately too late. :(

Have you phoned your network, yet, to get the phone's IMEI blocked? Do it.

Amin, thanks for that. I wasn't aware of that :)

Sorry i didnt explain well.

You need to log in to play.google.com with your gmail account. and you can download and install these 2 free apps to your handset remotely.

ANdroidLost
And Androidlost Jumpstart.


Next you must log in to http://www.androidlost.com with your google account and grant access. you will then get a pending page untill someone activates android lost on your phone. (texts/calls/ect trigger androidlost).


a you are now able to do many wonderful things like track phone by gps take a photo of the theif, pool it incase of simcard change remote wipe ect ect.

I wish you all the best. :)
