Easy Ways to Track Missing Health Points

When the mobile phone is lost, the owner will fear if the data on the mobile phone is used irresponsibly. Lucky if HP falls into the hands of a wise person and will return it to its owner.

So, in case you do not panic for a long time when your mobile phone is lost, immediately track and block the data through the methods that will be discussed below.

1. Track HP via Google

This search engine owned by Larry Page and Sergey Brin has a service feature to track lost cell phones and Wear OS watches. In addition to that, Google also has a feature to lock and delete lost mobile data specifically for Android users.

Just with internet access, you can track your lost Android phone with Google Find Android with these steps:

  • Visit https://www.google.com/android/find.
  • Approval of Google to track mobile phone location.
  • Log in to the Google account on your mobile phone.
  • If the account is used on more than one mobile phone, tap the type of mobile phone you lost at the top left.
  • If your mobile phone is using more than one google account, sign in with the account used as the main profile.
  • After that a notification will appear on the mobile phone missing from Google Play service.
  • After that, information about the location of the mobile phone will appear on the maps.
  • However, the location of the lost mobile phone may not be accurate and is only an approximate location. If you can’t find it, please see the latest mobile site if available.
  • Google at least has several other features that can help HP owners find information about the location of their mobile phone.
  • Play sound: It will make the mobile phone ring for 5 minutes non-stop even if it is in vibrate or silent mode.
  • A secure device: HP owners can lock the device with a PIN, pattern, or password and send messages like mobile phone numbers to your lock screen. This makes it easier for people who find cell phones to contact their owners.
  • Erase the device: The owner can permanently delete all data on the HP. However, the data on the external memory such as the SD card may not be deleted. It is worth noting that when you use this feature, Find My Device will no longer work.

2. Email tracking

  • Log in to your Gmail account on your mobile phone through the browser app on your PC or laptop.
  • Click the nine dots icon in the upper right.
  • Select the “Account” option.
  • Click on the Security menu.
  • Next, check the information about the devices that can access your Gmail.
  • Select the lost mobile phone to track it.
  • Then click the “More details” button.
  • Click the “Search for devices” menu option.
  • You will later be directed to Google’s Find My Device feature.
  • Although the map in the service feature may not display your mobile location accurately, this method can still be tried to estimate your mobile location.

3. Keep track of lost health points in the off state

The above methods can be done if your mobile phone is on, active and logged into your Google account, activates the HP location feature and connected to a stable internet connection.

What if the lost HP dies? There is a separate method to help track down a lost mobile phone when it dies. Please follow these steps:

  • Open the Google Maps app.
  • Click the small triangle icon on the right of the page.
  • Click on the “Add Account” option.
  • Enter the email address stuck on the lost mobile phone.
  • Enter the password and then click I Agree.
  • Next, click on the little triangle icon at the top left of the page.
  • Select the “Timeline” menu option.
  • Then the Google Maps app will start showing the location of the lost Android phone.

4. Track HP using IMEI

The International Mobile Equipment Identifier, or IMEI, is an identifier owned by HP and will be different from each other. The IMEI number cannot be changed or deleted.

The IMEI number gives the HP owner a greater chance of finding the lost mobile phone if it is connected by email. To find out the IMEI number, please find out in the following ways:

  • Type *#06# without pressing the call button, then the IMEI number will appear automatically.
  • Open the “Settings” menu on the mobile phone > “About phone” or “About phone”. Then the information about the IMEI number of the mobile phone will appear.

It is recommended to take a note of the IMEI number of the mobile phone in case this happens. Using the IMEI, you can ask the police for help in tracking down a lost mobile phone. As the police track lost cell phones, most of them are based on the IMEI number of the cellphone.

After that, you can seek help from the provider used in the lost mobile phone to track it down. All you have to do is contact the call center provider, then they will help you to track down your lost mobile phone.

5. Expect to use Google Maps

If your mobile phone is still safe in your hand, please activate Location Sharing using Google Maps app with your trusted people or your other Google account.

This way, you can keep track of the exact point where the mobile is when it is lost as long as the feature is active. Check the following method:

  • Open the Google Maps application on your mobile phone.
  • Click Profile at the top right.
  • Click the “Share Location” or “Share Location” menu.
  • Click Share Location or Share Location.
  • Choose the tracking time between “for 1 hour / for 1 hour” or “until the user is deactivated / until you turn this off”.
  • There will be email options that you can access frequently to choose from.
  • Swipe right and tap More to select the email you want to share the current location with.
  • Type the email address you want to trust to share your location with.
  • Then, your mobile location can be tracked as long as you don’t turn off the location sharing feature.

This method makes it easier for HP owners when something unwanted happens, such as losing a mobile phone. Unlike Google’s Find My Device, this method can provide a more accurate location.

This is the way to track a lost Android phone using Google account and IMEI number. It might be useful!
