Maybe some of you have lost your smartphone, whether at school, campus, public transportation or other public places. Even though your smartphone contains important data both personal and public in nature such as schoolwork files or office files as possible. The name of the loss, no one wants it, but if the incident happens, the name is also already wrong, the fate or bad luck is unavoidable.

How To Track A Lost Android Smartphone


If you experience this, the most common thing you do is call your number and hope someone sincere hearted takes it and delivers it to you. If it happens that it is the one who meets the expectations of us, aka a good person, maybe your smartphone will return to its full condition. But if the one who finds it is an honest person, then don't expect your smartphone to come back. I once read an article about someone who lost his smartphone in a public place and who found it was someone who was "honest-honest" or whatever the term. The problem is that it finds out honestly in writing by letter that he found it. The problem is that it doesn't necessarily return the smartphone but sells it because he says he needs more money. What he returned was only a flashdisk that backed up the data from the smartphone. How not to "honestly not try".

But there are actually other ways you can do it than just hope, namely by tracking the position of your smartphone using simple Google Search tricks. But in order for this trick to work there are a number of things you should pay attention to, namely Google app must be installed, you are logged in with a Google account, now cards, the Web & App activity must be enabled and location reporting is set to high accuracy So it is actually important to set the things above if you are afraid that one day your smartphone will disappear. But the problem is wasteful in power usage especially when the gps is turned on.
