    Where does the shit you erase go? Someone stole my phone. I got a new phone. And had to reset my password for the gmail on my stolen phone. I tracked it. Someone was on it after I got off of work. I went to a house where it showed the approximate location. And the people said they didn't have my phone. And they said idk what tell you. I was like well my phone was last turned on around your whole house. No one else's house. So it was here. And they were like anyone could of thrown my phone somewhere. And I'm thinking bs. I put a lock on it. But I don't want to erase my shit because Idk where everything goes. I've had that phone since high school. I graduated in 2018. And it sucks because I had so much shit on there.

    Why does some devices offer only "Enable Lock & Erase" whereas some devices offer "Lock" and "Erase" individually? Thank god I didn't click on "Enable Lock & Erase" because I thought pressing that may setup and give me the option for "Lock" and "Erase" option separately. So what's the deal? Can anyone explain?
