Google just got done telling us about its Android Device Manager, and how it would begin rolling out later this month, but it appears the search giant is already putting some pieces into place. Via Android Central, multiple users are reporting the new service is showing up on their devices, though it isn’t live just yet. As soon as it does get activated, it’ll essentially act like Apple’s Find My iPhone service, which allows users to remotely wipe data and more.

According to Android Central, there isn’t an associated apk or any sort of Google Play services attached—it’s just suddenly showing up for people, and not just in the U.S., but across the globe. It’ll certainly be a process over the next few weeks, but seeing as Google is wasting no time, perhaps the new service will go live soon. To check to see if the new Device Manager is on your handset, go into Security on your phone and look under the Device Admin section.
