    Question Device Administrators

    When entering the area:

    Settings->Security->Device Administrators

    Message states "No available device administrators"

    How are such Device Administrators created? I'm the owner and sole user of the Nexus 7 and it would seem that I should be able to establish an account to gain better control of the device.

    I've run into features (e.g. Face Unlock) that appears to require admin access to enable.

    TIA

    It appears apps have to be written to take advantage of this feature... you might glean some more information from this article (although it's a bit techy!) :-)

    Device Administration | Android Developers

    On my Nexus 7 - the Power Controls Screen Lock application is waiting for me to grant it device administrator access. If I allow it - it grants the application rights to lock the screen.

    Jim:

    Thanks for the reply, which provides good background on the scope of this "feature".

    I had become concerned that there might have been some superuser mode that I didn't have control over. As long as I have control over whether to grant/refuse admin rights to an app requesting it, it seems like it might be o.k.
