How can I locate my Android device?


You can locate your lost mobile device by sending an SMS message to the lost device.


Make sure that you have turned on GPS in your device to receive the location information. If necessary, consult your device documentation to find out how to turn on GPS.


To locate your device:

  1. Send the following SMS message to your device:
    #LOCATE#<security code>
    (Example: #LOCATE#abcd1234)

Anti-Theft replies with an SMS message that contains the latest location of the device.


Tip: To make sure that the feature works correctly, we recommend that you send a test locate message to your device after you have set it up.


Note: Anti-Theft does not store any location data. The only location information is in the SMS text message that is sent to you.
