    Hi,
    Several steps can be taken to prevent misuse of your phone and protect your data-
    1. Call or Text Your Phone
    The first thing you should do in the event that you've lost your phone is to call it from another phone. Perhaps you've merely misplaced it.
    2. Lock It Down
    We all have important and sensitive information on our phones. Hopefully, your device isn't in the wrong hands, but to be sure nobody can access your private info, lock it down remotely. You can do this by logging into your Android Device Manager and Find My account on another device and manually lock the phone.
    4. Set Up a Lock-Screen Message
    Once your phone is locked down, the only way back into it is with your password and chances are, whoever has your phone doesn't have that information. Set up a lock-screen message to let whoever has the phone know that you're looking for it, along with a phone number or other contact information to get in touch with you.
    5. Report Your Phone Lost or Stolen
    If you think your phone has been stolen rather than lost, you should probably file a police report. It sounds like a lost cause, yes, but I know people who have done just that and their phones have miraculously made it back to them.
    6. Protect Your Accounts
    Your phone is locked by now, but it's still not a bad idea to protect your accounts, just in case. According to Gizmodo, you should log out of your social media and email accounts, until you get the situation under control.

    Another two steps should be taken-
    7. Suspend Your Service
    If you suspect suspicious activity on your lost or stolen phone, it's best to err on the side of caution and suspend your service.
    The last thing you want to deal with after the fact are erroneous charges and data usage bills that will only compound this already stressful situation.
    8. Wipe All Data From Your Phone
    Wipe your all Data remotely and I think this is the best option to free from further tension.
