Wish your partner a happy Valentine’s Day with Android Device Manager

Security is a serious affair, and so is love 😉 So I thought about using one of the security features on Android to surprise my wife on this Valentine’s day.

Do not read any further if you don’t know your partner’s passwords. And the best way to get your partner’s password is to share your passwords with him/her.

Fortunately I know the passwords that my wife uses (thanks to the tip mentioned above).

Next, all the phones/tablets (Android, Windows Phone, iPad, Blackberry) can be setup for remote locate, lock and wipe. That’s one of the first few things that I setup on my devices. So the remote security (Android Device Manager) was setup on my wife’s phone (OnePlus One). The stage was all set for the fun.

With the Android Device Manager setup on my wife’s phone, I logged into her Google account and browsed to https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager. When the clock turned 12, I clicked on the Lock icon and filled up the form as shown in the screenshot:

I entered my name for the password: a loyalty test 😉

For me this innovative Valentine’s greeting didn’t go as expected. My wife panicked on seeing the message and called me to help. I’m the resident techie for anything which goes wrong with technology. I tried to maintain a straight face and asked her to follow the instructions and enter a name to unlock the phone. That’s when the game was over and she entered my name with a smile = “I know you did this” So much for the loyalty test 🙁

Happy Valentines Day! Hope your partner too gets the password right 😉
