There’s a free app that can be used to find your lost or stolen cell phone called “Find My Phone” that I would like to tell you about today. This application is made to work on smartphones that are running Google Android version 2.3 or higher. It’s made by the same developers as the GPS Tracking Pro application. The name of the developer is “Family Safety Production”.

As a matter of fact, this application looks very similar to GPS Tracking Pro. After installing it on my phone, I was presented with a login screen that looked quite similar to the GPS Tracking Pro login screen. I was asked to enter my email address and password so out of curiosity, I entered my email address and the same password that I use for GPS Tracking Pro and I was able to login to the Find My Phone app.

The main login screen has a slightly different appearance on the find my cell phone application but once I was logged in, I had a hard time finding any differences between the two apps. If there are any differences, I haven’t been able to find them yet.

How to Use Find My Phone To Find Your Lost Mobile Device

Find My Phone ScreenshotThis application is unlike some cell phone tracking applications that have a web-based interface that you can use to track down the location of a lost or stolen cell phone. If you would like to use this application in the event that you ever lose or have your cell phone stolen, you’ll need to take some measures beforehand to prepare for that scenario. You will need to install the application on your phone, and you will also need to install the application on at least one other friend’s or family member’s smartphone. After you have installed the application on both phones, you will need to use your phone to invite the person who owns the other device to allow you to track their device. After they have accepted the invitation to allow you to track their phone, you’re ready to go.

In the event that your phone is ever lost or stolen, you will simply need to use one of the phones that you have previously authorized to track your phone to find its location. By looking on the onscreen map in the application, you will see the icon that represents your phone displayed on the screen of your friends phone. The location of your missing device will be displayed on the map. I haven’t been able to figure out a way to make the application display the actual address of the missing phone but I have been able to see the location of a phone displayed on a map.

I should point out that in order for you to be able to use this application to find a missing cell phone, it will need to be running on both phones. This means that it might be a good idea to get in the habit of keeping the application running on your phone at all times.

You can download this software by launching the Play Store app on your smartphone and entering the name of the application in the search bar.
