The biggest stress is the loss of mobile devices (especially smartphones). This is because our devices contain most of our private information and potentially sensitive data. If this data is lost or stolen, it may cause catastrophic or heartbreaking consequences.
If you are using an Android device, you can use some tools and steps you can take to help you find your lost location, or if you are a victim of theft, you can find your location. The following are some useful resources available that you can use when your phone is turned on and connected to a mobile or Wi-Fi network. We strongly recommend that you do not use a phone tracker to track people or use it for illegal purposes.
Google’s “Find My Device” app is a must-have tool for Android users and one of our favorite Android apps. If you have added your Google account to your Android device, “Find My Device” will open automatically. You can go to “Settings”> “Google”> “Security”> “Find My Device” and make sure that “Find My Device” is turned on to verify that the service is running.
The following material was recorded on LG V40 ThinQ running Android 10. The search scans all the devices you connect to. Functions include tracking mobile phones, tablets or smart watches via GPS, remotely erasing, playing sounds or locking devices.
The app allows you to easily find your lost device and can be downloaded for free from the Play Store. After installing the app, it will ask you to log in and make sure location tracking is enabled. After installing and running the app, just turn on and connect to Wi-Fi or mobile data to find your device.
To track your device, you can also visit the “Find My Device” website in any browser, whether it’s on a computer or another smartphone. If you are logged into your Google account, you can type “find my phone” in the Google search box. If the lost device can access the Internet and the location tracking function is turned on, it will know where it is. One of the cool features here is that you can lock the device and write a message with a phone number. This way, if someone finds or owns your device, all they have to do is press the “Call Me” button on the screen to call the specified phone number. You can also choose to play a sound (loudly) or wipe the phone remotely.
If you use a browser to track your phone, you need to log in to your Google account. If you have accessed the service from someone else’s smartphone or desktop browser, you must first log out, and then log out of all accounts after completing the operation. If you keep your account signed in, anyone with access to the computer can track your smartphone. The application only takes one minute to install and configure, and is easy to use, so it is the first choice for finding lost Android devices.
If you have a Samsung phone, such as Samsung Galaxy S10, you can use Samsung’s “Find My Phone” service. You will need a Samsung account to use it. You can find the option to activate the service in “Settings”> “Biometrics and Security”> “Find My Phone” and determine whether to allow remote unlocking and “Send Last Location”. With remote unlocking, Samsung will store your PIN, password or pattern so that you can unlock it even if you forget the password, but it can also be used to remotely control the phone. Send last location When the battery is almost exhausted, the last known location of the phone will be sent to Samsung’s server, so it is worth enabling this option. You can also log in to the Samsung website with an account in any browser to track the lost phone or tablet.
