If your phone has been stolen and you're able to track its location, do not attempt to recover it yourself. An extra step to unlock your phone is worth the effort when you consider the potential impact of exposing your personal info to a stranger. If you use the Erase Device feature, you will no longer be able to track the phone. We hope you never have to go through the emotional roller coaster of losing a phone, tracking it down and trying to get it back. Enabling this feature will track your phone every 15 minutes. In the event your phone goes missing, don't panic! Contact your carrier to file an insurance claim as soon as you realize you aren't getting your phone back.
