Find a Lost Galaxy S7

Find a Lost Galaxy S7

You can find a lost or stolen Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge using Samung's own tools, or the Android Device Manager. I prefer the latter and it's available on the Google Play Store and tracks it right down to a few meters of distance, but Samsung's own method is pretty great too.

Samsung includes a Find My Mobile option that lets you track a lost or Stolen Galaxy S7 and prevents someone else from re-activating it.

Go to Settings > Lock screen and security > Find My Mobile. Login with your Samsung account or fingerprint and then turn on remote controls, Google Location service and Reactivation lock.

If you lose your phone you can go to the Find My Mobile site and locate your device. You can make the phone ring, lock it, wipe it, turn on emergency mode or Ultra Power Saving mode and even grab the call logs. There is an option to remotely unlock it as well. Pretty handy in case of loss or theft.

    The list was quite helpful to me on my new S6 Edge Plus, thanks.

    Can I also add my spouse to the fingerprint scan? So we’re both able to use the device?

    Google Now gets it wrong so often that it is useless. When did you ever hear anyone use it? Never.

    I normally do not leave comments, but thank you for this helpful list! It informed me on things I didn’t know my phone could do, such as the SOS feature.
