Remotely Track Your Galaxy Note Online Free From Samsung

Thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member dr.ketan, users of the Samsung Galaxy Note, and presumably other Samsung devices as well, can use a free service from Samsung to remotely track and control their devices from a web browser.

The directions are very simple and present no danger to your device whatsoever. Says dr.ketan:

First Go here
http://samsungdive.com
and register your account(free)
– Now on mobile go to setting-Location n security – Find My mobile
1.check SIM card change alert
2.click on alert msg recipient – Now login with credential, you have register on above mentioned samsung site. – and add recipient mobile number (your other number / family number) on which you will get notification, if SIM will changed.
3.check Remote control

Then upon logging into Samsung’s website for it, you simply click on your device and from there you can do anything from remote wiping the device to making it ring in case you dropped it in your couch and you can’t find it.

The uses are plentiful. For more information, you can check out dr.ketan’s thread where you can also find directions for use and a feature list.
