You might be thinking of Russia because of it’s wider area. But actually the country having to it’s credit the most number of time zones is France.

France, with its scattered national territories, has more time zones than any other country in the world.

France has 12 time zones, followed by Russia with 11. The French mainland currently uses the Central European Summer Time (UTC+02:00), while its dispersed overseas territories, like Guadeloupe and French Polynesia, use time zones ranging from UTC-10:00 to UTC+12:00.

How to find and locate your lost smartphone or any android device just in one minute even if it is in silent mode.

It happens several times that we keep our smartphones at places and forget or we lost somewhere while dropping it off or somebody has stolen it. In any such circumstances this information is of vital use.

Here is how you can search and locate your smartphone and secure it back. Google’s Android Device Manager locates lost devices and helps you keep your device—and the data inside it—safe and secure.

Step 1: Log in to your Google account from any other device, the same account which you have logged in with your android device.

Step 2: On the google search bar write “Where is my phone?” and you will locate it on google map, but before showing your smartphone’s location google will ask you to reenter the password in order to ensure the authorized access and secure your device.

Step 3: You have three options there: Ring, Lock and Erase.

In case you forget your phone in some known location, you can ring and find it out.

In case you dropped it somewhere you can lock your phone.

In case your smartphone is stolen you also have an option for erasing all the data from your phone in order to secure your confidential information from being theft.

Not only this Google’s Android Device Manager will ring even if the phone is in silent mode and you cannot locate it.

We expect further such innovative steps from giant companies like google and alike.
