What is Find My Mobile?

Find My Mobile tracks down your device when it gets lost. As many of us rely heavily on our phones for business and personal use the result can be too much to handle. With this in mind, Find My Mobile goes even further by allowing you to remotely lock your device, block access to Samsung Pay and wipe data from the entire device in the event your phone falls into the wrong hands.

The 3D Depth Camera is a Time of Flight (ToF) camera on the Galaxy S10 5G that can judge depth and distance to take your photography to new levels. It uses the known speed of light to measure distance, effectively counting the amount of time it takes for a reflected beam of light to return to the camera sensor. This smartphone ToF Camera is used with Live focus video and Quick Measure, letting you add more creative flair and get information in a way you've never seen before.

In the case of Live focus video, you're now able to blur out the background in real time as you take a video, adding a brand new vibe to your movies. You can even swap between foreground and background focus with ease, to switch up the focus with a tap. Live focus video is available on both the front and rear cameras, so simply open the Camera app and swipe to Live focus video to try your hand at movie direction.

WIth Quick Measure, the camera acts as a 3D camera, judging width, height, area, volume, and more when you put an object in frame. Quick Measure is a preloaded app on Galaxy S10 5G, so open the app and put an object in focus to get a real-time measurement right on your screen.

*The Quick Measure app is separate from the Camera app.*Any measurements provided by Quick Measure may not be accurate and should be used for reference purposes only. Accuracy of Quick Measure may differ depending on various factors including shooting conditions, such as being outdoors, and object characteristics, such as being too large, very small, highly reflective, or extremely dark.

5G is a new data standard that will surpass the speeds of 4G LTE, with a hyper-fast, low latency connection. Theoretically, at its maximum fastest speed, 5G will be around 100 times faster than current 4G speeds, allowing you to download, upload, and stream at incredible speeds without being connected to Wi-Fi. It also will reduce latency, for improved responsiveness and less lag when you're connected.

Use Find My Mobile to find a lost Samsung Galaxy device

So you've just lost a brand-new Samsung Galaxy phone. It's OK! You're fine. Samsung's Find My Mobile feature is here to help. It's free, and if you signed into your Samsung account when you first set up the phone, then it's already set up.

Let's assume you still have the phone to hand. Instead of waiting for something unfortunate to happen, take a few minutes right now to ensure Find My Mobile is enabled and setup on your Galaxy phone or tablet.

Indeed, Google already offers a similar app for all Android devices, and there's nothing wrong with it, but Samsung's service for its own devices gives you more functionality. Note: Not all carriers support Find My Mobile. If you can't locate Find My Mobile on your Galaxy device, your carrier may offer its own version, or you can download Google's Find My Device app via the Play Store. It may even already be installed.

Setup

If you signed into your Samsung account during initial setup, like I said, odds are Find My Mobile is already turned on.

Check on your device by searching for Find My Mobile in the Settings app. Alternatively, you can go to Settings > Lock Screen and Security > Find My Mobile. If prompted, sign into your Samsung account to enable the feature.

I suggest turning on all options associated with the feature as well. Remote controls will allow you to do things like force a remote backup, retrieve call and message logs, enable battery saving features and so on. Google location service provides more accurate location information -- vital at a time when you're tracking down a lost device. Send last location will monitor the device's battery and send its last known location right before it loses power.

Track

Samsung doesn't have an app you can use on another phone to track a lost device. Instead, you can use any mobile or desktop browser to visit findmymobile.samsung.com. Once there, log into your account and select the device you're looking for.

If it's powered on, you will see its current location and battery percentage. A popup will also provide a series of actions to take on the lost device:

  • Ring
  • Lock
  • Erase data
  • Back up
  • Retrieve calls and messages
  • Unlock
  • Extend battery life
  • Set guardian

Most of these are self-explanatory. There are a couple that are worth explaining a bit more. For example, retrieve calls and messages will sync with the phone and show you the last 50 calls and messages, complete with phone numbers. 

The Extend battery option will provide the option to help you track it longer. Lastly, the Set Guardian option allows you to designate a friend or family member as someone who can log into Find My Mobile on your behalf to track or control your device.

Configure Samsung's free Find my mobile service - gHacks Tech News

Device manufacturers such as Samsung add custom applications, features and services to their devices that differentiate the devices from stock devices and devices created by other manufacturers.

Some go as far as putting so many apps on the device that it may feel like overload for some users. This can also result in users missing out on some apps or services that may really be helpful for them, and Samsung's Find my mobile service may be one of them.

If you have access to a Samsung mobile device, like my Galaxy Note II for instance, then you also got access to the Find my mobile feature that ships with it.

Find my mobile

The service adds remote access to your device that you can use for a variety of services:

  • Locate my mobile - This tracks your mobile device so that you know where it is. While you do not get a detailed street address you can zoom in to narrow it down by a lot.
  • Lock my mobile - This service lets you lock your mobile phone which can be useful if it was stolen or if you have lost it.
  • Ring my mobile - You can make your phone ring so that you may locate it easier.
  • Call / Message forwarding - Configure call or message forwarding here.
  • Call logs - Look up the call history.
  • Wipe my mobile - This wipes your mobile clean so that no personal data remains after the operation.
  • Unlock my screen - This unlocks the screen of the device.

You need to configure the service before you can get started using it. The first thing that you need to do is create a Samsung account if you have not done so already.

Visit the Find my mobile website and select the registration option there to create the account. You can either do so manually or by linking your Facebook account to the Samsung account.

Once you have done that, you need to activate the account and the Find my mobile feature on your device. The easiest way to do so is to open the user guide on the website. Select your Samsung device from the list and you get a page full of instructions on how to configure your phone.

Let me show you how it is done on the Galaxy Note II:

  • Select Apps > Settings.
  • Scroll down until you find Add account under Accounts.
  • Select Samsung account when the account list opens up.
  • Download any update if available and repeat the process.
  • Enter the username and password that you have selected for the account to activate it.
  • Go back to settings and select Security from the menu this time.
  • Tap on remote controls under Find my mobile.
  • Enter the password of your Samsung account and hit done.
  • This enables the feature automatically

Note that this will also enable GPS. You do not need to have GPS enabled at all times though, as it will automatically be activated when you use the locate my mobile button on the service's website.

Verdict

Samsung phone owners do not need to use a third party tracking and location service as they have one built-into their phone by default. It is easy to setup, considering that you have the app already installed on your system and that you only need to activate it to make use of it.
