Find My Device is an application and service developed by Google to remotely trace, locate and wipe Android devices such as smartphones, tablets and smartwatches, and Pixel Buds.

Its initial release was in December of 2013 and allows users the ability to pull up Vital Information about their device such as IMEI & Attached Phone Number, Play Sound to help locate the device, and Secure & Erase.

So, how do I use it?

Using Find My Device is super simple, and is as easy as searching “Find My Device” on any Device logged into your Google Account. You should be greeted with a Google Maps style widget on the Google Search Page, listing any Android Devices you may have logged into as-well as it’s current or most recently reported location.

(This Location is not saved forever, and generally will disappear after a day or two of the phone being powered off and you will be greeted by a “Device can not be found” message)
