  • 2 devices connected to 1 google account
  • You don’t have to install anything from google play store or any app

Note: I’ll refer device 1 as the missing device (Phone) and device 2 as the locator (I used a laptop but it can also be an android phone)


  • Go to link or search “Find my device” in google

Device 2 (P.O.V.):

It will show where your missing phone is located, where is last seen, battery life and as well as refreshing it will provide if the phone is moving its locations

Then there are 3 other features:

  1. Play sound – Make sure your alarm sound is in max volume to identify the sound coming from your phone
  2. Secure Device – Allows your device to be locked and sign out of your google account
  3. Erase Device – Erase everything from your phone to ensure that no one can get any valuable and personal information from you
