How to control my mom's Android phone?

My mom has an Android phone and I have it too. We both are thousands of miles away. She is a new smartphone user, and it is hard for her to learn the skills to use it.

How do I Disable Android Device Manager on Sold Device?

I am a GSuite user and a ZTE Axon 7 device that I recently sold via SWAPPA was setup with Android Device Manager.

I went into the standard Find my Device and tried to remove it, and it appeared to have been removed from whatever screen I was on, but the buyer is still complaining. I am still seeing the device here: https://www.goog...Read more
