No more wondering if it is at the office, in the car or at home.
Google has made it easy to find your Android phone with a recent update to its search site.
Here's how to do it:
Simply type "find my phone" into the Google search engine from your PC. You'll need to be logged into the same Google account as your phone on your PC.
This simple new way to find your phone is in addition to the existing Android Device Manager.
Android Device Manager lets you locate your Android device and do both a lock and remote data wipe--important if you need to ensure that your data is kept safe. First, you'll need to go to your Android's device setting and select the Android Device Manager to ensure that locate device option is set.
After that, just visit https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager to locate your device.
That's it. Two ways to Find Your Android phone!
