Using Google

To use this service you must be signed in to google on the device and it be switched on.
If you lose an Android phone or tablet, or Wear OS watch, you can find, lock, or erase it. If you’ve added a Google Account to your device, Find My Device is automatically turned on.

To find, lock, or erase an Android phone, that phone must:

  • Be turned on
  • Be signed in to a Google Account – check google
  • Be connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi – check wifi settings
  • Be visible on Google Play – tap Google Play and check you are on or sign in
  • Have Location turned on – setting – security – tap on
  • Have Find My Device turned on – security – tap find my device.

If you used your lost phone for 2-step verification, you must have a backup phone or backup code.

Remotely find, lock, or erase

  1. Go to android.com/find and sign in to your Google Account.
    • If you have more than one phone, click the lost phone at the top of the screen.
    • If your lost phone has more than one user profile, sign in with a Google Account that’s on the main profile. Learn about user profiles.
  2. The lost phone gets a notification.
  3. On the map, you’ll get info about where the phone is.
    • The location is approximate and might not be accurate.
    • If your phone can’t be found, you’ll see its last known location, if available.
  4. Pick what you want to do. If needed, first click Enable lock & erase.
    • Play sound: Rings your phone at full volume for 5 minutes, even if it’s set to silent or vibrate.
    • Secure device: Locks your phone with your PIN, pattern, or password. If you don’t have a lock, you can set one. To help someone return your phone to you, you can add a message or phone number to the lock screen.
    • Erase device: Permanently deletes all data on your phone (but might not delete SD cards). After you erase, Find My Device won’t work on the phone.
      Important: If you find your phone after erasing, you’ll likely need your Google Account password to use it again. Learn about device protection.

Tip: If you’ve linked your phone to Google, you can find or ring it by searching for find my phone on google.com
