On this page you have to make decision based on situation you are in. If your phone is somewhere near you bu you can`t find it select Ring. Is it really near you you will see on map on the right side. If you left your phone somewhere where it`s limitedly safe use Lock option. But if you are sure that it`s stolen use Erase option.
