Device seized

Remote lock and erase

If you are attending a protest or other high risk event, your devices such as mobile phones might be seized by the police or private security or even stolen in the crowd. In case this happens, your private data becomes exposed to all kinds or risks. 

Android phones, in case they have the “Find My Device” option enabled, provide you with a possibility to remotely lock them with your PIN, pattern or password or even erase all data on the phone. Google provides further instructions on how to secure seized Android devices. Very similar options are provided by Apple for iOS devices such as iPhone or iPad.
