 How to Track Lost Cellphone with IMEI

 IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity, which is the identity number on every smartphone.  Usually consists of 15 to 16 digits.  The IMEI number can be found on the inside of the phone, after the battery.

 Already able to check the IMEI number, we can see the 'About Device' menu in the smartphone settings or you can also type the number *#06#.  After that usually the IMEI number will appear on the screen.  Then what is the way to track a lost cellphone with IMEI?  Indeed, the method is a bit complicated and not as easy as other methods, but how to track a lost cellphone with IMEI is a safe way.  Because privacy and other data will remain safe and secure.

 After knowing the IMEI number, the next step in how to track a lost cellphone with IMEI is to call the smartphone operator's call center and report that our cellphone is lost, and notify the cellphone number and smartphone IMEI number to the operator.  The operator will also notify the whereabouts of our cellphones.

 But what must be noted and remembered is that this one way can be done if our lost cellphone has an internet connection, GPS, and the cellphone is turned on along with the SIM card still in it.  If the cellphone is turned off and the SIM number has been changed, the cellphone will not be found.  This is a disadvantage of using IMEI.


Application to Track Lost Cellphone HP


In addition to how to track a lost Android cellphone with a cellphone number, we can also track Android by using several applications that were created to track cellphones.  The following is a list of applications that can be used to track a lost cellphone.


 1. Find My Device

 The first application that we can use to find a lost cellphone is Find My Device.  One of the most widely used applications for tracking lost android phones.  In addition to tracking lost cellphones, this application also allows us to lock smartphones remotely and minimize the possibility of bad things happening.

 In addition to minimizing the possibility of harm, another goal is to protect privacy and important data on HP.  As we know, HP is currently one of the most important tools that store many important things.  When our cellphones are lost, we simply turn on Find My Device in the browser and the application will immediately find the location of our lost cellphone.  As long as the lost cellphone has an internet connection.


 2. Find My Mobile

 After Find My Device, the next mobile tracking application is Find My Mobile.  This application is a default application for Samsung HP.  Because the Samsung company has its own tracking and security service, namely Find My Mobile.  So when our cellphones are lost we just use another Samsung cellphone to track our lost cellphones.

 The method is quite easy, we have to go to Settings > Biometrics and security > Find My Mobile.  After that, we can choose send last location to see where our smartphone is or our cellphone is lost.  We can also control a lost cellphone remotely by using the Remote unlock feature available in this application.


 3. Family Locator

 The next application that can be used to track a lost cellphone is Family Locator.  As the name suggests, this application can track the whereabouts of our family or people closest to us, with a note that each family member or closest person must both have an account in this application.

 The interesting thing is, this application will not only provide the location of family members in real time but can also tell the location history for the past seven days of each family member.  So if our smartphone or cellphone is lost, we just need to borrow the cellphone of our closest family member, and we can immediately find out the whereabouts of our lost cellphone.


 4. Life360

 Life360 is the next lost smartphone tracking application that we can use.  In fact, this application has been dubbed the all-in-one tracking app or a multi-functional tracking application.  This is due to the ability of Life360 to support the group tracking feature.  We can create a group together with family or close friends.

 So, when a cellphone is lost, through the created group, we can immediately track and find it using the Life360 feature called a private map.  Not only tracking, Life360 also has features to call an ambulance, accident detection, and other useful features.


 5. Lost Phone Tracker

 The next cellphone tracker application is an application that can not only track the whereabouts of a cellphone but can also share location information with other android users.  Los Phone Tracker has a similar way of working with Find My Device.

 Tracking lost cellphones using this application can also provide notifications to lost devices.  In addition, there is also a remote controller to lock the cellphone and also factory reset.
