Lost Your Android Phone? Google its Location to find it

Have you ever experienced the stress that comes with a lost /stolen phone and wondered if there was a simple yet effective way to track your smartphone? Google now has a solution for you, and it is as simple as it gets. If you wish to pinpoint the exact location of your Android phone, all you need to do is visit Google and type “find my phone”. The Android Device Manager will then show you the exact location of your device and a host of other useful features as well.

locate Android phone

In the search results page that opens up, you will see the exact location of your connected device(s) on a map. This feature is sure to be of immense use to anyone who owns an Android smartphone and it can also be used to track family members at any point of time during the day.

As of now, this tool is only available in English but its functionality is expected to reach out to other native languages in the near future as well. In addition to showing the location of the device on a map, the feature also allows you to ring the device. This allows you to locate your Android if it is in your room and you just can’t seem to find it. Another benefit of this feature is that your device GPS does not need to be switched on in order to make this feature work. However, the device does need an active data plan or Wi-Fi connection for this.

Android users can also setup a Lock and Erase functionality via the Android Device Manager interface. With the help of these functions, the device can be erased of all confidential data and can be locked remotely as well. Subsequently, the device can only be unlocked with the help of a preset password. Indeed, this is a great feature for parental control measures as well as parents of young children can now easily see the location of their kids with a simple Google search.

Locate your device with the aid of Quick Heal

Needless to say, it is never enough to rely on such features of one service alone. It is always advisable to use multiple services for the same function, especially when the device in concern is your smartphone. Possibly, there is a lot of sensitive within your smartphone that you just don’t want falling in the wrong hands. For this purpose, you can also use Mobile Security or Total Security for Android to locate your lost device. This and other anti-theft features can easily be accessed via the Remote Device Management (RDM) account that can be setup within seconds. With all these security protocols in place, locating a lost or stolen device is now easier than ever.

Though these features are helpul but I tried it with net connection OFF and it did not work. Moreover we dont know if it will work when the SIM is changed which is what the thief will do immidiately after staling the phone.We definetly don’t expect the thief to keep the Net on.

ALL ssid and done – FINE.. normally thief or person who finds it, will not activate the phone, will make it “DEAD” by removing battery and sim card. secondly, it will be sent in quarantine by the gang, to keep it off. Third, to login in to your google account, with your mobile android google id, you need same device, as in this pc the id and password is not stored, where as google account recognises your account and device too. EVEN IF IT IS ACTIVE AND YOU CAN LOCATE WHERE YOUR PHONE IS, EVEN POLICE CANT HELP, WITH THEIR… Read more »

Hi Rahul,

This feature is very good. But I am concerned about the privacy and security of oneself. With this anyone can track us or keep a watch on us.
Is there any feature which will allow me to be invisible to others.?

Kindly suggest.
