I need to erase a pixel with a broken inoperable screen.

Find My Device from Google can't locate the device.  The device is on and rings.  I have no way of knowing if it is connecting to wifi.

If Google can't find the device, can it still remotely wipe it?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Oh goodness, nwsoftball, I am terribly sorry your Pixel is not usable. Does anything show on the display or is it blank?

 

I understand your concern about removing your content from the device. There are 2 ways to complete a factory reset: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-208003/  Both ways do require screen use for selections, there is no alternative that we technically support. Have you checked into getting the screen fixed?

Ann154,

Knowing if your device can be wiped can provide peace of mind. Rest assured, Google can remotely wipe. Here's a link with the steps: http://spr.ly/6582DUoH0
