Steps To Finding a Stolen Android Phone

1. Ring the Phone

Most times when we notice that our phone is been hijacked the first that comes to our mind is to call it, that’s a nice start and step to take. Why ring it? Probably it is just beneath the couch or somewhere close-by. But a state whereby the android phone has the Silent sound profile activated, it will still vibrate when you call the line.
There’s a workaround to still having your device ring even when the silent sound profile is activated. This requires that the device in question is already connected to the internet. All you need do is visit the Google Android Find page and click on Ring My Phone option. The Android device would ring for 5 minutes non-stop till you are able to find it.

2. Track the Device

Like earlier said, you can track your android smartphone by making use of the Google Find My Phone page. Once you have your location already turned on on the smartphone, Google would be able to pinpoint the location the smartphone was last seen on a map, hence you can see exactly where your device is 

3. Get The Police and your Family Informed

In this case, you can file up reports to the police, but there is no 100% guarantee that will they will be able to carry out actions on the theft. Still, I advise that you Document the case as it’s very important. Don’t forget to write down vital means of identification for your device, which include: the phone number and most especially the serial number. Handing over to the police the tracking information from the Android Device Manager may also help you get your phone back. You can as well relate this to your friends and family about the theft.

4. Secure Your Accounts

This is one thing you should quickly do. Once you have your Android device stolen, quickly log in to your social media accounts (obviously from another device) and every other account you have logged in on that device and change the passwords to them. One can never be too careful. This will save you the hassle of having to undo the harm the thieves might cause you on any of your logged in platforms on that smartphone.
