Surely no one wants to lose his/her device, but as the proverb says "it's better to get your umbrella ready before it's raining" right? BlackBerry 10 OS has provided us a handy way to find our phones in case we lose them by using BlackBerry Protect.
The first thing you need to do is to make sure that BlackBerry Protect service is enabled. To do so, go to Settings, choose BlackBerry Protect and then turn on the BlackBerry Protect toggle switch.
You will also need to turn on the Location Services in order to locate your missing devices. From the Settings window, go to Location Services and then turn on the Location Services toggle switch. After completing these simple steps, then you are good to go!
There are 3 helpful features from BlackBerry Protect that can help you to find your missing devices:
- Find your device on a map
- Make your device play a sound so it can be found
- Display a lock screen message with your contact information and lock the device using a new password
BlackBerry has provided a helpful guide on how to activate those 3 features mentioned above. Simply go to BlackBerry's Official Blogs to read its guide on BlackBerry Protect.
