There are few more desperate situations than going somewhere with friends and realizing that the cell phone is no longer with you. With so much important information on our smartphones, losing such a device ends up becoming a scary situation – especially when you think about how you will recover it.
However, for Android users, the situation gets a little less creepy. Google provides a feature that can be accessed directly from the browser and shows the approximate location of the phone, sounds a buzzer and blocks it. The most interesting thing is that it does not matter if you lost your cell phone at the last party it was or if the smartphone simply disappeared into the mess at home; in some way, it will be easier to find it.
Check out how to use Google to find your device:
- Go to Google, as if you were to do a search.
- Search for the phrase “Where is my phone”.
- A map will be displayed. Note that you may need to sign in again.
- You will be directed to a screen with a map showing the location of your phone.
- In the menu, there are some options, such as playing sound, locking and cleaning the device. If you have lost your phone nearby, click “Play sound”.
If you have lost your smartphone away from home, remotely lock it using the menu available. And there’s more: even if your phone is in silent mode, it will ring the buzzer if you turn on the feature.
It’s true that iOS users have a similar feature available, but it’s not as practical as simply doing a Google search.
