Google’s Android Device Manager (ADM) was released a couple of years ago for users to track their phone on the map or remotely wipe data in case of theft. Since it’s been around for so long, it’s quite understandable that this is the only device tracking solution for most users out there. However, a large group of users are now claiming that they can’t track their device from the mobile app.
Some users have reportedly found a fix in trying to delete any guest accounts that might be using ADM on the device, but even this is not a confirmed solution. Given that Google hasn’t released an update for ADM since April, we’re guessing a big patch is on its way.
The issue can be spotted on Google Product Forums as well, which gives us an idea as to how widespread this really is. The issue has been spotted on a range of devices running different versions of Android and Google Play Services, so it’s not limited to a particular device, which causes more concern.
