We recently published an article that gave useful tips on How To Find Lost Android Phone. It was well appreciated by the Android fans but the ‘Windows Faithful’ felt left out. The dominance of Android and iOS has left Windows to be a mere spectator all the way. However, having said that, it’s not too bad for the ‘GIANTS’ out there. The world still boasts of faithful Windows Phone users, and these loyal fans can get rugged at times; meaning – they can lose their precious gems. So, if you somehow manage to lose your precious gem, do not PANIC. Windows has a pre-installed service, Find My Phone that helps you track your phone. Here, we list those steps to track your lost windows phone.

PLEASE NOTE : TRACKING OF YOUR WINDOWS PHONE CAN ONLY BE POSSIBLE IF YOU HAVE ENABLED THE WINDOWS PHONE TRACKING SERVICE BEFOREHAND

HOW TO ENABLE THE ‘FIND MY PHONE’ SERVICE

Push Notifications – The windows ‘Find My Phone’ service uses text messages to send apps and commands to your phone. However, selecting this option will enable the push notification service that can be faster than text messages.

Phone Location – As it says, enabling this option will save your phone’s location at regular intervals that can be utilized later to track your phone.

HOW TO USE THE ‘FIND MY PHONE’ SERVICE

Before you start reading ahead, a word of caution – To understand these steps one doesn’t have to be a ROCKET SCIENTIST as this is no ROCKET SCIENCE. THIS IS VERY VERY EASY!!!

Assuming you have enabled the service and have lost the phone; follow these simple steps.

  • Go to your web browser (Firefox/Mozilla/Safari/ETC) and browse to windowsphone.com

  • Sign in with your Microsoft Account

Sometimes, it may so happen that the latest location of the phone is not displayed. In this case, do NOT panic. Just refresh the screen and it should be enough.

WHAT MORE CAN I DO WITH THIS FEATURE?

Ring Your Phone Remotely

Yes, that is possible. It may so happen that you might misplace the phone in your home or office. In such a scenario, this feature acts like a miracle. Just click ring and it will. Also, it doesn’t matter if the phone is set to Vibrating Mode or Silent Mode.

Lock Your Phone Remotely

Just like the ‘Ring’ function, the lock function helps you to Lock the phone. This function displays a custom message on your phone and helps you set a 4-digit PIN that you can use later to unlock your device.

Erase Phone Data Remotely

This is a handy function that helps you erase any confidential data/information that you may have stored in your phone. This is possibly the last gasp option to be used. This will reset the phone to default factory settings.

WHEN DOES THE FEATURE NOT WORK?

The Windows Find My Phone Service though is handy, it has a limitation. The phone needs to be switched on for this feature to work. Obviously this is no magic, this is technology. It will have its limitations. And well, if all you Android and iOS users are having a laugh, the same rule applies for you guys as well :P.
