I will soon buy my pre-teen an Android phone. I've postponed it as long as I can. What do you recommend for - Backup and restore to new phone (these phones are easily broken and damaged) - - Apps - - Data - If lost - - Wipe data - - Locate lost phone (locate child?) - - I see that Google's "Find My Device" works well. I assume that the "Secure Device: Lock phone and sign out of your account" works well too, as long as the phone is powered on. https://myaccount.google.com/find-your-phone Supervise and/or restrict child's usage (e.g. types of content, hours / times of useage) I know this is pretty general but it pretty much lays out the concerns I have and the reasons why I've postponed this purchase as much as I can. I know there are great remote access apps. Why do I seem to have so little control over my child's phone. I tried using one of the Google Family Link. But my child's Google account was originally set up as a typical over-13, and when I declared them "my child" that triggered a "discrepancy" and it locked my child's Google account. I think we unlocked it by purchasing something with a credit card. Sorry I didn't document every little detail.
