Device administrators

Device administrators allows you to specify which special apps (with the ability to act as "Device administrators") are allowed special permissions that have greater-than-normal access to your device, such as the ability to erase all data on your device or change the screen unlock password.

The screen will either be empty, or list one or more apps that qualify for such access.

Clicking on one of these apps, if there are any, will show a summary of the special permissions you would be granting if you activated that app as a device administrator.

It should not normally be necessary to do anything in here.
