Losing a mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet, can cause a lot of trouble. Not only you may lose all your data and personal information, but also someone else may access your accounts, use your credit cards, or even impersonate you. That’s why it’s important to take preventive measures and secure your device before something bad happens.
One of the most useful tools to secure your device is FindMyDevice location services. This feature allows you to remotely locate, lock, and wipe your device, so you can prevent unauthorized access and keep your data safe. FindMyDevice location services are available for both Android and iOS devices, and they are easy to set up and use.
How to Set Up FindMyDevice Location Services on Your Device
- If you have an Android device, go to Settings > Google > Security and enable the Find My Device option. You may also need to enable Location access and Google Play Protect.
- If you have an iPhone or an iPad, go to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone/iPad and enable the Find My iPhone/iPad option. You may also need to enable Location Services and iCloud Backup.
- Make sure that you have a Google account or an Apple ID, and that you are signed in to it on your device.
- You may also need to download and install the Find My Device app on your Android device, or the Find My iPhone app on your iOS device. These apps are available for free on the Google Play Store and the App Store, respectively.
Once you have set up FindMyDevice location services, you can use them anytime to locate, lock, or erase your device, in case it gets lost or stolen. You can do this from another device, such as a computer or another smartphone, by accessing the Find My Device website or app, and logging in with your Google account or Apple ID.
