As we said before, although we are talking about a tutorial that works on many of the current Sony Xperia devices, we cannot lose sight in any case that it does not work on other Android terminals, and that for them you will have to look for much more specific solutions. Returning to the Sony Xperia, we have to highlight that the necessary tool is downloaded directly from the Sony Update Center, although it may not yet have reached some very particular countries.
We then go to Settings, About the phone, Software update, New applications, My Xperia, and we will see that among the different options, there is one with an installation icon. Click on it, and we will quickly see that after the installation this icon appears on the Sony device. Once it has been downloaded and installed, we must activate the new function, and to do so we have to go to Settings, Xperia, My Xperia and Activate, something that you should be able to develop without problems.
Once we have this essential application active, the next step will be to go to My Xperia on the web, where we can reach through this link, although in reality we can also be sent from any search engine, so do not have any doubts about looking for this platform in Google. When you enter there you must log in to Google with your account which is the same as you have identifying the smartphone. There we will be shown some instructions on the screen, which will allow the activation of My Xperia on our mobile quickly.
The interesting thing about this function or tool that we have taught you is that will allow us to lock the device permanently with a four-digit PIN code that only we know, and it is even possible to delete all files from your device remotely from the Delete option. It is a mechanism similar to that found in many recent iPhone devices, and that is why it is appreciated that some Android manufacturers also work against the resale of lost or stolen mobiles.
