5 New Ways to find your lost Android smartphone easier

Google has bought up many tools and features to give best security features of Android users along with their privacy concerns and user best practices.

In the early 2013, Google has launched
Device Manager service which helps in locating lost devices and recently Google has added more features and replaced Device Manager with Find My Device by which users can find their lost phone.

Find My Device feature is default enabled on Android devices running on Android KitKat and above. Any Android smartphone or device must have a working internet connection and Google sign-in with location enabled for feature to work.

Find My Devices Features :-

Display Last Known Location :>

Whenever you lost your phone and it is not connected to the internet and it cannot display the current location, then Find My Device will display the last known location from the Google Maps location history. Users will also have the ability to launch Maps' location timeline from the Find My Device app so they can retrace their steps.

Last connected Wi-Fi access point :>

Find My Device app will also display the last connected Wi-Fi access point. This will enable users to determine the location of their lost device even if the location can’t be reported.

Displays the battery level :>

This app tool will also tell the amount of battery left in the device. This will allow users to estimate the time they have to reach their smartphone.

Ring and lock the phone as well as erase the data from it remotely :>

It’s now easier for users with multiple devices to select the one they’re looking for and perform common actions, such as ring, lock and erase.

Android Wear and Google Home smart speakers can help to find lost phone :>

Users can find their watch with their phone and their phone with their watch (as long as both devices have location enabled) or ask their Google Home to find their device by saying, "Ok Google, where is my Phone?"
