Losing a phone is one of the most devastating feelings, especially considering how much of our lives we store digitally on them, including our contacts, wallet, and even car keys. If your phone was password protected, you can breathe a sigh of relief temporarily.

Every Android device that’s linked to a Google account can be tracked through Google’s Find My Device service. It works similarly to Apple’s Find My app and allows you to not only ping your misplaced Android phone but also lock or erase its contents.

Assuming your cell phone has been switched off, you will only be able to view the location where it last pinged Google.

That may be enough if your phone was lost rather than stolen. In the event that someone finds and turns your phone on, you can easily ping, lock, or factory erase it using Find My Device.
