  1. Hello Rafaqat,
    Thanks for the awesome tutorial post. Android Manager is only ok when you lost your phone to track it. It’s can’t help when someone steal your phone. Because, when someone steal your phone, he/she definitely disable Android manager feature from the phone.

    • you are right, but people who have a little knowledge about it may not switched it off, also if any one switched off the feature it will still show the last location that may help to get an idea about it.
