Google has introduced “Find your phone”, a new feature that will enable you to lock down, track and call your missing device. This feature was launched in celebration of the My Account’s first birthday. Google’s My Account service enables users to manage their privacy and security settings on Google products. Additionally My Account also includes accessing your account by voice and finding it online by searching Google.
Millions of phones are stolen every year in the U.S. alone, and countless more are lost in taxis, cafes, and couch cushions around the world. Find your phone is a new feature that will help you if your phone is ever lost or stolen.
The feature is automatically enabled such that all smartphones that you’ve used Google services on will appear under your account. It can be used on Android and iOS, soon users will be able to use it by simply searching Google for “I lost my phone.”
