Find My Device is a software program designed to help users locate their mobile device if it is lost or stolen.
Main Functions and Features
Find My Device essentially functions as a virtual tracker. Although many will use it to locate a missing smartphone, this system can also work with tablets and even smart watches. The only stipulation is that the unit in question will need to contain the Android operating system. Once activated, it will display the coordinates of the phone through the use of an interactive map. Users can zoom in or out; ideal if they happen to be unfamiliar with a specific location. All information is shown in a real-time format, so it is much easier to recover a potentially lost piece of equipment.
While Find My Device is an excellent tracker, the users is provided with a handful of other powerful options. The screen itself can be locked in order to prevent unauthorised access. It is also possible to erase any important personal details or to display a message on the main screen so that others realise the device has gone missing.
