How to track a lost or stolen phone.

Using Find My Device for Android

1. Open the Find My Device website. Go to https://www.google.com/android/find in your browser.
2. Log into the website. Enter the email address and password for the Android that you want to find.

3. Select your phone. Click your phone's name on the left side of the page. This will prompt Find My Device to begin searching for your Android's location.
4. Review your phone's location. Once your Android's location is determined, it will display on-screen.

  • If your Android is off or doesn't have a cellular/Wi-Fi connection, its location won't appear.

5. Lock down your phone if necessary. If you want to prevent your Android's data from being recovered, you can lock it down by doing the following:

  • Click LOCK on the left side of the page.
  • Enter a password if prompted.
  • Enter a message and a recovery phone number if you like.
  • Click LOCK when prompted.
