If you have by mistake left your android phone while sitting on a cafe table or in the back of a cab or may be some mastermind thief has stolen your smartphone. It is obvious that it is gone and you need to search it.
If your phone is password protected then it prevents accessing your data by an unauthorized user. But this can also be against you, for instance, if it gets in the hands of a Good Samaritan and he wants to return it, he/she may not be able to do the required search operation work.
In order to avoid such circumstances Android 4.0 offers a smart option in the form of lock-screen contact information, which will show the message of selecting even on a passcode protected device. Here’s how to set this up:
- Proceed to Settings, on your android phone, and then gaze for an access called Lock Screen.
- Click on Lock Screen, Owner Information.
- In the space provided, enter whatever message you find it helpful to someone in the course of returning your phone, for instance, official contact number or personal email address. You can also opt for Google voice number as an “emergency number” in case you don’t want your personal number to be visible on the lock screen.
- Check your lock screen owner info and then click OK.
And it’s all set. Now, if someone gets your phone, they will get the info they need to get in touch with you without even bypassing your security. While you’re considering it is done, still be convinced to equip your phone with some kind of tracking app so you don’t have to rely only on the compassion of strangers.
