    Has anyone tried to set up the HTC find my phone connection on the M8?
    Can't seem to find a way to set it up on my new phone.

    Download android device manager from the play store. This integrates phone location services for all phones attached to your google account.

    This service allows for 2 features:
    -Phone location services
    -Lock & erase

    However the service is very limited. Google implemented far more than that and can be found here: Android Lost

    Android lost is a great new service, Here is a a link to their new website after you have installed the app: http://new.androidlost.com/

    I tried it out a little bit and was very impressed, especially since it is still in beta.

    That ish makes me cringe. It's unbelievable how much access to your phone is available to someone else by providing security to your phone. What if someone hacks your "Android Lost" account? Big brother could follow your day quite nicely without you even having a clue. Better get my Google glasses on. Lmfao????
