Who doesn’t know it. You need your cell phone, but you can’t feel it in your pocket. The fear that then goes through you is indescribable. Fortunately, you will be spared this blind panic next time, because with this handy tool you will find your Samsung smartphone again in no time.
If you have a Galaxy smartphone and have lost it, you can use a “find my mobile” function. Samsung has developed a powerful tool that allows you to locate, lock and even reset your Galaxy device remotely. Thank goodness, because with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra still a long way off, you’ll have to get by with the smartphone you have now.
How do you set up the Find My phone tool?
The feature does not work without a Samsung account. Therefore, create one first, if you don’t already have one. Once created you can proceed with the following steps.
Step 1: Go to the settings of your Samsung smartphone and click on biometrics and security. Here you will find different options for the security of your Galaxy device. Next, enable the “find my mobile” option. To make it even more secure, you can also choose to enable ‘send last location’ or ‘unlock remotely’.
