Find My Device

It’s frustrating when you can’t locate your phone, whether you put it under the bed, lost it in a cab, or took it out of your pocket. If you have lost your Android phone, you can use the Find My Device feature to track it down.

The Find My Device feature and Google’s Location services must be active for this to work. The mobile device must be active and connected to a Google account.

Trace Mobile Number

Trace Mobile Number is software in which you can enter a 10-digit mobile number and get its operator name, circle, and address information on Google Maps.

Pixels and many other Android phones include Find My Device in the stock operating system. Therefore it is typically enabled by default. Remember that some Samsung Android devices may already have their app installed. Samsung’s “Find My Mobile” app is one such instance.

The next thing you can do is examine if Location has been enabled:

  • Locate Location in the settings on your phone. It will state immediately below the header if it is on or off.
  • Toggle it on if it’s off by tapping the Location button.
  • You may also check which apps you currently have access to and have used your location. If you’d like to tweak this option, select App location permission and make the necessary changes.

Locate Your Phone

You’re all set right now. If you’ve misplaced your phone, search Google for “Find my device.” Select the desired gadget from the list you’ve added to your Google account. Choose one. You’ll be taken to the Find My Device screen, where you can see the name of your phone, the most recent pinging information (including the Wi-Fi network it was connected to), and its battery level. The latest known position of your phone will be shown on a Google map. Three options are visible on the screen’s left side after you’ve found your device. Depending on whether you think the device is in a secure area, you can choose one of the options. One can:
  • Play a sound (often the ringtone) from the device for five minutes to help you locate it.
  • If you’ve accidentally left your phone somewhere public (like a cab or a restaurant), you can protect your information in the meantime by locking the device and signing out of your Google account.
  • Delete the device. If your device is lost or stolen and you know it can’t be retrieved, you can erase its contents so that you can’t access the information even if you discover it.
