Hither to, loosing your phone is never a good situation for anyone because there were o means to find it. Even when you have an extra one to spare, but for the advancement of technology, such uncomfortable situations can be avoided.
To find a lost Android phone, there are three ways to track it down.
- If the phone is still turned on and in range of a wireless signal, you can track it from a computer using Device Manager. If it’s vice versa, you can check your phone’s last reported location from a computer through the following steps;
- To use Device Manager, sign into your Google account from a computer or another device. Google’s Device Manager should instantly show you your phone’s location on a Google Maps screen.
- With the Device Manager, you are provided with an array of options like, making the phone ring, or to remotely wipe its contents and data.
However, this option relies on wi-fi and mobile signals instead of GPS, so it will not be as accurate at locating your phone as the Device Manager.
You can also use the “Find Device App” on Google Play Store.
- First of all, always make sure your GPS is turned on.
- Download Find Device on Play store or search Find My Device on Google with computer or another phone.
- Next, sign in with you google account and hit okay or next.
- Voila!! google will pinpoint the exact location of the lost device if the GPS is on.
- If GPS on the lost device is off you will get the last location of the device.
So you can now save yourself a great deal of worry if you ever lose your phone.
