Find My Phone allows you to locate your phone by sending it a text from any other phone
How does it work?
Pick a case-sensitive “find my phone” password and hit Save. That’s it!
Should you ever lose your phone, just have someone else send a text to your phone with the password. Your phone will come to life by lighting up and blaring its ring tone full blast until you find it.
It will play even if you left your phone on silent!
This app is totally free. We hope you enjoy it.
Now clarifies the password is case sensitive.
Google’s making it even easier to track down your misplaced mobile device. While Android Device Manager already exists to help find lost phones and tablets, just getting to your account’s ADM menu often requires a search of its own. But Find My Phone is as simple as a web query. In fact, that’s literally what you’re doing. Simply open a Google omnibox and type “find my phone” to display a map that reveals the phone’s current resting place. If the device is nearby, you can also opt to ring your cell. Unfortunately, Find My Phone does not allow you to lock or erase your device should it be stolen or, say, left at the local pub — you will still need Android Device Manager to do that.
