If you wish to have a tracking feature to track your lost mobile then these three apps will help you in the best way. Alright, let’s see what are those 3 must have Android apps to track lost phone.
Android Apps To Track Lost Phone
1 – Plan B
If your mobile is already gone and you realize that you haven’t installed any application to track it then don’t worry. Plan B is the perfect application for you. You need to install PlanB remotely with the help of Google Play (the mobile should be connected to the internet or else this won’t work). After installation, the next step is to locate the missing device. For this, you need to send an SMS from another phone to your phone with text “LOCATE”. After some time, you will be getting email regarding the coordinates of your lost mobile.

This application is also from the same producer but with extra feature compared to PlanB. Apart from lost mobile tracking, lookout also provides security and privacy options also. It helps to prevent your mobile from malicious code. There is also an option to backup your mobile contents with a single click. All the valuable information will be stored in the cloud and you can restore it whenever you want with simple procedures. The most notable feature of this app is “Remote lock and wiping”. If your mobile is lost you can login to Lookout and lock the mobile with a code and if you have any sensitive data like bank passwords etc you can wipe the contents of the phone with this App.
