Definition - What does Remote Lock mean?

A remote lock is a security mechanism that allows an individual to lock a cell phone or tablet PC from a remote location. It is used to prevent theft or unauthorized data access to stolen or lost smartphones and other portable devices.

Techopedia explains Remote Lock

Google introduced the remote lock feature for Android-powered mobile phones and tablet PCs.

Remote lock is enabled through the Android Device Manager application, which allows a user to locate, call, lock and erase mobile device data. A user can lock a stolen or lost device by resetting the password. The phone remains locked until the correct password is provided.
