Find My Device

The No.1 App to find your android back

Misplaced your phone? Feeling a cold sweat as you retrace your steps? Fear not, Android users! Find My Device by Google is a free, built-in feature that helps you locate your lost or stolen phone, tablet, or even smartwatch. In just a few clicks, you can see its location on a map, ring it at full volume (even on silent!), or even remotely wipe it clean to protect your data.

If you’ve added a Google Account to your device, Find My Device by Google is automatically turned on. By default, your device is set to the ‘With network in high-traffic areas only’ setting so that it stores encrypted recent locations with Google and helps find both your and others’ offline devices as part of a crowdsourced network of Android devices. Your device’s most recent location is available to the first account activated on the device.

Here’s a quick guide to get you started:

  1. Make sure Find My Device is enabled: On your Android device, go to Settings > Security & location > Find My Device and ensure the toggle is switched on.

  2. Locate your device: Head over to https://www.google.com/android/find on any web browser and sign in with your Google account. You’ll see a list of your Android devices associated with that account. Select the one you’re looking for.

  3. Take action: Depending on the situation, you’ll see options to:

    • Play Sound: Makes your device ring at full volume for 5 minutes, even if it’s on silent.
    • Secure Device: Locks your device with a PIN, pattern, or password and displays a message on the lock screen (optional).
    • Erase Device: This is a last resort! It performs a factory reset, wiping all your data from the device. Only use this if you’re absolutely sure you can’t recover the device.
