Remotely Delete the Data of your Galaxy S10
Find My Phone is nothing else than Google’s native find your phone app. It does all of the basic stuff you’d expect it to. I bet that you know that it can locate your Android phone within a certain distance. The app also lets you ring your phone, wipe your phone or even show a message. Even so, I think that Find My Mobile from Samsung should be your first help in case of owning a Galaxy S10 device.
At first, I still call it yours. Via this service, you can generally locate your device remotely, amongst other features. If the thought of somebody else accessing your photos, apps, emails or banking info scares you, I have the solution. You can first try to lock your phone, display a simple message, but not everyone reacts properly to these measures.
If you don’t have any hope to get back your stolen Galaxy S10 or the precious information stored in it, then Find My Mobile allows you to remotely delete the data. Well, the downside of erasing your phone is you won’t longer be able to track your lost device via Find My Mobile. So, you have to be sure that this is literally your very last option. At the same time, data on SD cards may not be deleted.
And if it turns out your Galaxy S10 wasn’t stolen or permanently lost after all, then you will likely need your Google password to use it again after erasing. You also won’t be able to use the Find My Device app in any way after this process.
