FindMyPhone

Helps you find a mislaid phone

If you lose your phone having this app installed can help you find it. Upon receipt of an SMS or email, FindMyPhone gets your location and communicates the location back to the owner. Note that GPS may need be enabled and the phone within view of the sky for an accurate location to be obtained. The app will fall back to using Google's network location API, but we recommend you disable that nonfree software anyway. Currently supports activating by sending a secret message via SMS or an email to K-9 Mail. The resulting location is sent via SMS.

Status: Beta.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
