Ever lost your phone? It’s the worst. So frustrating.
Google to the rescue (at least, for Android users).
Next time you lose your phone, go to myaccount.google.com. Scroll to the bottom and click “Get started” under Find your phone. Select your phone from the list, and you’ll see what to do next. You can have it ring on full volume even if muted. You can locate it (though if it’s in your house, that’s about as specific as you’ll get). You can even lock your phone or erase the data. It’s amazing, really.
That’s it. Don’t lose your phone. If you do, find it this way.
Just a helpful hint!
