My Nexus 7 was lost/stolen. I've changed my google, facebook and amazon passwords. Is there anything else I can do? It does not have 3G networking; only wi-fi.

If it's still turned on, you could install Plan B. Next time encrypt the device so it doesn't matter if it gets stolen - your data will be safe. You could also install PhoneLocator Pro if the device has a sim card - then you can wipe it remotely.

Oh and make sure you sign out all your Google accounts. Log in to gmail, then click the link at the bottom right of the page to see where you are signed in.

PayPal? Banking?

Both Plan B and PhoneLocator Pro are incompatible with the wifi-only Nexus 7.

I use Cerebus for Android on a wifi tablet, which seems to work great as long as the device is on and connected to the internet somehow.

I don't know if you can remote install that, but it might be worth a try through the Play store on the web.
