Find specific devices in the devices list

As an administrator, you can review a list of devices managed by your organization. If you want to find specific devices, you can use the search bar and filters to narrow the list.

Search bar

To search by a keyword or device serial number, at the top of the page, enter the word or number in the search bar.

  • Searches aren't case-sensitive.
  • The keyword is matched across most columns with string values. For example, you can search by part of a user's name or email, the device name, and the operating system. You can't search by ownership, status, or days since first or last sync.
  • To search for an exact phrase, enter the words in quotes, such as "iOS 13".
  • Search treats punctuation marks and symbols as spaces. For example, searching for is the same as searching for "admin example com".


To narrow your list with a filter, at the top of the list, click Add a filter and select the filter conditions. For example, you can filter by management level (basic or advanced), username, and other device details. When you filter by first or last sync date, you enter a date range.

Common filter options

The level of control your organization has for a managed device. Possible values:

Last sync date A date range of when a device last synced with Google servers.
OS The exact operating system of the device. For example, "iOS 14.4" or "Chrome OS 13904.66.0". Partial operating system names, such as "iOS 14" or "Android 8", may not return any results.
Updates pending* For Android devices under advanced mobile management, whether an OS or security update is available.

  • Chrome OS devices always have a passcode. The password status is Off when the device doesn't have automatic screen lock enabled.
  • Mac devices can have other types of passwords besides passcodes. This property doesn't report whether the device has any other type of password, such as a firmware password.

*The filters that are available depend on which devices list you're in.

  • If you go to Devicesand thenOverviewand thenMobile devices, or Devicesand thenMobile & endpointsand thenDevices, you have the common filter options in the table, plus several more.
  • If you go to Devicesand thenOverviewand thenEndpoints, the common filter options with a "*" aren't available.
