Google updates Android Device Manager with remote locking

Google has updated its Android Device Manager to allow for remote locking of mobile devices. The online dashboard not only blocks access to anyone that doesn't know the password, but also gives the option to set a new password, according to Android Police.

Devices in Airplane mode will receive the lock command and password changes once it reconnects to a network.
