Find Your Lost Android Phone
Do You Keep Misplacing Your Phone?
Are you one of those people who keep on forgetting where they keep their phone
I have a weird habit of having my phone in my hand all the time, that also leads to me keeping it in many places when I’m doing some tasks & I end up forgetting where I last left it
And then I have to grab a nearby phone or ask some else to do that for me & ring my phone(trust me I keep doing this a lot!!!)
In this digital world, Your phone is like the MOST important thing especially when you are out
If you forget your money, you can still survive thanks to digital wallets but if you lose your phone
You kinda feel incomplete, like something is missing.
So knowing a way to find it back is really important. don’t you think?
Find Your Lost Phone
Yesterday me & my brother went shopping & once we were home my bro was unable to find his phone
For a while, we thought he actually dropped it somewhere in the mall(in reality he left it at his office 🙂 Thank god for that)
He was really tensed as it had all his important contacts. So we tried to find it
I know we can find the phone using IMEI number( IMEI number can be found by typing *#06# on your phone) but sadly WE didn’t have it
So, I was searching for an alternative
Then I remembered I read somewhere that we can find the lost android phone using Google account
So I googled it
And then came across Find Your Phone Website by Google that helps you to locate your android phone & luckily it worked
I used the Google account of my brother on my phone & got the location
It was his office & then he informed the security about the phone & asked him to keep it secure
And then he went & picked it up
Finding his phone was a big relief. so I thought why not make a post on it
So others could take benefit of it as well
