There is no way you can locate your phone if someone factory resets, you can contact the company and give them the IMEI number, they might be able to block them from using it

I have lost my phone can I track it


It happens to every smartphone owner.
In fact, I can say with almost 100 percent confidence that at some point in your smartphone-owning life, you will utter the words, "Did you see my phone?"
Maybe you set it down somewhere in your house and can't quite remember where "somewhere" is. Perhaps you left it at a restaurant after taking pics of your mouth-watering meal to tease friends on social media (karma, dude).
Then again, maybe someone with grabby little paws decided to abscond with your precious device a la Gollum.
Regardless, now you want to find your phone pronto and would like to know how. Just like the "Find my iPhone" feature for Apple's smartphone, Android smartphone users have a built-in phone tracking option as well courtesy of Android Device Manager.
For older phones, you might need to set up Android Device Manager beforehand in order to use it, which will prove to be a tricky scenario if you've already lost your phone. Owners of newer Android phones those in our Android Phone Fight feature, however, likely already have this feature activated.
When I tested a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, for example, I was able to use Android Device Manager's tracking feature without having to set it up. The only caveat is that you need to have a Google account (e.g. Gmail, Google Play Store) synced with your phone, which you likely did the first time you set up your phone because it's pretty much a necessary step to fully use an Android phone (also a good idea in case you forget the lock screen password to your Android device and want to reset it).
Well, actually, there's one more caveat - your phone needs to be on because you need it to emit a wireless signal for this whole process to work. The lesson as always is, preparation is the mother of discovery. Or something like that.
Anyway, assuming you're all set and ready to go, here's how to find your lost or stolen Android phone with Android Device Manager.
(For folks who have forgotten their security code, make sure to check out our tutorial on How to Remotely Reset Your Android Lockscreen Password.)
Go ahead and launch Android Device Manager through its app or by going to your web browser of choice and visiting its site. To get to the site, you can either do a search for "android device manager" or go directly to the site at: https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager. Also, make sure you log on with the Google account associated with your locked device.
Once you're on Android Device Manager, you'll bring up a screen that includes a map and a menu box that shows the devices associated with your Google account. If everything is set up right, the map will eventually load the location of your phone.
This is especially useful if you lost it while visiting different locations as you'll know which specific store or place you left it at. If it was stolen, well, confronting the thief probably isn't a good idea but you can at least lock or remotely wipe your phone by tapping on the "Lock" or "Erase" icons on Android Device Manager. You can even remotely change your lock screen passcode from here.
If you lost your phone at your house, the map function won't be as useful as it'll probably just have a circle around your house.
This is when you'll want to tap on the box menu's "Ring" function, which will cause your phone to ring at high volume, event if it's on silent.
Admittedly, Android Device Manager isn't a perfect solution, especially on older phones. One time, it highlighted a two-mile circle when I used it on my Galaxy S3, for example. Welp. Other times, I got the dreaded "location unavailable" message and had to do the search multiple times. It usually works well on newer devices, though, so it's still a useful trick to know.

Its hard reset and I cant get in it how can I get in without a google account


When you factory reset a device that has a PIN code or a SWIPE code of some sort, the Google security lock will trigger after a factory reset. This is because the phone is assuming you factory reset it because you could not get into the phone (ie. it is not your phone / it is stolen).

At this point, you need to log into the phone with the Google account it was set up with. There are a couple of scenarios you may fall into at this point.

  1. If you know the e-mail, but you do not know the password, you have to reset the password (via the computer, etc). WARNING: If you reset the password, you cannot log into the phone for 72 hours (again this is a layer of security for stolen devices).
  2. If you have absolutely no idea what the e-mail is, Google is assuming you stole it. At this point you either need to contact the manufacturer / the carrier to see if they can exchange it (assuming it is your device).

What to do when my phone has ben hard reset and I cant get in with any goole accounts at all

At this point, you need to log into the phone with the Google account it was ORIGINALLY set up with. There are a couple of scenarios you may fall into at this point, BUT there is no way to "bypass" this security lock.

  1. If you know the e-mail it was ORIGINALLY set to, but you do not know the password, you have to reset the password (via the computer, etc). WARNING: If you reset the password, you cannot log into the phone for 72 hours (again this is a layer of security for stolen devices).

Google and MS can trace a stolen Tablet or phone. This seems a little useless if the thief can merely reset the device thereby deleting all acc. How can one password protect this reset sequence.


You are correct that such methods are useless if thieves can merely reset them. Just remember though, that most thieves aren't too bright to start with. Thus, they tend to steal an item and then quickly sell or pawn it for cash. This is what allows tracking to work. If the manufacturers wanted real security, they would embed the security in the hardware, not in the applications. But since most tablets these days are cheap, there is no incentive for them to do so. It would only raise the cost and remove the consumer's incentive to but their product, since no one expects to have their phone or tablet stolen. But you cannot protect the reset sequence since it IS built into the device. The only saving grace here is that the reset clears out virtually all personal information, thus protecting you somewhat if it is stolen. Unfortunately, it may not clear all the personal info on an internal SD card. So be very careful what you leave on the tablet it you leave it lying around.

,can I mater reset my from another Android phone


Remote master reset only works if you have previously set it up on your phone. From the market install Android device manager open it and then follow the instructions to set it up. If it wasn't set up before it was stolen then there is no way to remote wipe your phone.

STOLEN PHONE


Hello, there is one application that an Android native, is called Android Device Manager. This app allow you to track, call and erase or lock your phone's data. There is one thing though, it needed to be active in order to work. But you can give it a try.
Do a search for Android Device Manager, it's usually the first one in Google search. After opening the site, type in your log in information (google account to which your phone was activated with).
Once the phone is with in Wi_fi range or is active with internet, you should be able to pin point the location of the phone.
As posted, the phone must have some kind of connection to get internet or data enable, otherwise, it just won't work.
This only works with Android phones.
