    How Can You Track Lost Android

    Post  kenn™ on 21st August 2013, 10:41


    There are no official ways of tracking a lost phone of any sorts, we all rely on methods used in the past that are either getting the sim card blocked or the iemi mumber blocked. but with Android,there are apps which can do the job for you. So, how do they do it then ? Lets read on to figure out how.


    Most lost-phone-tracking Android apps must be set up ahead of time. However, there’s a reason Plan B works (if you have a Gingerbread device, at least). That’s because Android allows you to remotely install apps — click the Install button on the Google Play website and the app will be remotely downloaded to your device, assuming it’s turned on, connected to the Internet, and configured to use the same Google account. If the app can set itself up, you should be able to remotely locate your phone.

    While Plan B doesn’t work, Android Lost does. To set up this app, you can interact with the app on your device — or you can send a special SMS message to your device. Assuming you have access to someone else’s cell phone, you can push the Android Lost app to your lost phone, send an SMS message, and then it will be linked to your Google account. You can then log in with your Google account on the Android Lost site and locate your phone.

    Using Android Lost :

    1. First, install the app. Open the AndroidLost page on Google Play. Click the Install button and remotely install the app to your lost phone.

    2. Next, you’ll need to activate Android Lost. Since you don’t have your phone, you’ll need to send an SMS message to your phone for this to work. Use another phone and send a text message with the following content to your lost phone:

    3. Your phone’s Google account should now be registered with Android Lost, assuming it’s powered on and has a connection. You can now open the Android Lost website, click the Sign In link, and log in with the Google account you use on your Android phone.

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    4. Access the Controls page after logging in with your Google account, and you’ll be able to track and control your phone remotely. You may have to wait a little while before your phone becomes registered. In addition to requesting the phone’s location, you can also activate a loud alarm that will make the phone’s screen flash — particularly useful if you think you’ve misplaced the phone somewhere nearby and need to track it down.

    5. After your phone sends its location back, you can view it and click a link to open it on an interactive Google Maps page.

    6. You may have to wait a little while for the phone to become registered. If you have pushed the app and sent the SMS message and the phone never becomes registered, it’s possible that it’s powered off, has no signal, or — worse — that someone has wiped the phone and you won’t be able to track it because it’s no longer linked to your Google account.

    7. If you’ve lost your phone and never set up a tracking app ahead of time, Android Lost is the best you can do at the moment.

    Other apps can send your phone’s location in the background (so you can view it even if your phone has been off), remotely wipe your phone, or install themselves deep into your phone’s storage so they can persist across wipes (this requires root access). However, you’ll have to set up such apps ahead of time.
