Reset passwords for and lock company-owned Android devices
G Suite admins in domains with Google Mobile Management enabled can already take actions to protect the data on their users’ mobile devices. For example, they can require devices to have screen locks and wipe devices when they’re lost or stolen. With this launch, we’re giving admins additional capabilities—they can now remotely reset the password on a company-owned Android device or lock the device entirely.
Reset device password
If a user forgets their device password, you may want to reset it for them.
Check out the Help Center for instructions on how to reset the password on a user’s device.
If a user loses their device, you may want to lock it until it’s found. This will force users to enter the device’s password before using it.
Check out the Help Center for more info on locking user devices.
Please note that the reset password and lock functions can only be used in domains that have advanced mobile management enabled.
