Google has upgraded their Android Device Manager app for Android to add more security features. To be more specific, Google has added prompts for your password both at application startup and whenever you need to switch accounts.
This should ensure that only you can locate, wipe or lock your device from a remote location, which seems like a no-brainer considering the serious consequences that an accidental device wipe could have for some people. Google is also touting the typical performance enhancements and bug fixes, and — like always — we have no clue what those actually are.
Regardless, you’ll want to get your hands on this upgrade as soon as possible. It’s in the Google Play Store, so be sure to download it and live with peace of mind knowing your device is fully protected.
