Find Your Android Phone Now!

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android

Think you’ve misplaced your Android phone in your house? Or worse yet, left it somewhere?  Here’s how you can find it using your computer. Go to any computer, open a browser and go to

You’ll be prompted to sign into your Google account.


If you have more than one Android Device, select the device you’re looking for.


A map will show you where your phone is located!


See, mine is right here at Worldstart!


 You can choose to ring the phone to help you find it in the house if the location information shows it’s nearby.


You also have the option to lock the phone to prevent someone else from using it until you get to it.


 If you think your phone has been stolen, you can also completely erase all of you information.


If you want to change the display name of your device, just click the little pencil symbol to edit.


Then type in the name you want for your device


Ring and locate are enabled by default on most phones. To make sure the options to erase and lock the phone are available, you’ll want to look under your phone settings, then find Device administrators.


Tap it and make sure Android Device Manager has permission to erase and lock your device.


This great feature can save you from tearing your house apart when it turns out you left your phone at work and it can protect you information should your phone be stolen.
