Now the company adds one more useful feature, the ability to remotely change your smartphone’s password! Thanks to a new Lock Button, you can set a new code in your Android smartphone no matter how it has been locked (PIN, pattern etc.). Let’s not forget also that the Android Device Manager allows the device to ring remotely so that in case it’ has been forgotten in the house and you cannot find it you are saved!
