Plan ahead in case your phone goes missing
Plan for the unexpected. You can take some steps to make it possible to find your phone, and remotely lock or erase it, if it should ever get lost or stolen.Step 1: Set up Find My Device
With Find My Device, you can locate your phone on a map, as well as lock it or wipe your data or make it ring. You just need to make sure Find My Device and location access are turned on before your phone goes missing. They're turned on by default, but it's a good idea to make sure.
You can secure your phone by setting a screen lock. Each time you turn on your device or wake up the screen, you'll be asked to unlock your device.
You can back up photos, videos, files, and music from your phone using your Google Account.
