How to Find Your Lost or Stolen OnePlus 5

Hey there! So, you’ve misplaced or lost your precious OnePlus 5? That’s a major bummer, especially considering all the important files and the hefty price tag. But don’t worry, I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve to help you find and recover your stolen or misplaced OnePlus 5. You can use tracker apps or the Android Device Manager, which works just like Apple’s Find My iPhone. It was designed to help you locate lost or stolen devices.

With the Android Device Manager, finding your OnePlus 5 is a piece of cake, no matter where it is. Let me show you how:

Tips to Find Your Lost OnePlus 5

I’ll walk you through a few ways to track down your stolen OnePlus 5. Here are some effective methods to start your search:

  • First things first, make sure you have the right tools installed on your OnePlus 5 to speed up the search. I recommend using the Android Device Manager and Lookout. And once you get your device back, take precautions to prevent this from happening again.
  • There are other apps, like AirDroid, that let you remotely access your device to recover important information. You can even access your camera and text messaging service.
  • If you know you just lost track of it recently, try calling your OnePlus 5 with a friend’s phone or a house phone to see if it’s still nearby. This method is much easier than the others, but only works if your phone is still close by.

Use the Loud Ring Mode Option to Find Your OnePlus 5

Always remember to put your OnePlus 5 on loud ring mode. It makes the search easier and faster when your device is nearby. You can also download programs that enable remote access, so you can wipe the data and documents if you have confidential files on your phone. If you ever need to use the Android Device Manager from another Android device, download the app from the Google Play Store.

Try Lookout

If the Android Device Manager doesn’t do the trick for you, give Lookout a shot. It works the same way and has extensive security features.

Locate Your Lost OnePlus 5

If you want to use the Android Device Manager to locate your lost phone, you’ll need to go to the Android Device Manager page on another device and track your OnePlus 5. The GPS will help you find it, no matter where you are. Just remember not to try recovering a stolen phone on your own. Get in touch with the police for assistance. Also, the Android Device Manager locates your OnePlus 5 based on the WiFi network, so make sure it’s connected.

(Although, if you left your phone in a restaurant and the GPS says it’s still there, it’s probably safe to just call the restaurant and pick it up without any backup.)

Use the Android Device Manager to Find Your OnePlus 5

The most effective way to recover your stolen OnePlus 5 is to make sure you’ve registered the device and it’s accessible through the Android Device Manager. Google released the Android Device Manager in 2013, and most Android devices have it pre-installed. Usually, you don’t need to worry about setting it up because it’s already activated. But it’s always good to double-check on your OnePlus 5.

Setting up the Android Device Manager on your OnePlus 5 is a breeze. Just go to Settings, click on Security and Screen Lock, then choose Device Administrators. Find Android Device Manager and enable it by marking the box.
