Samsung has just updated its “find my smartphone” application that gives you extra security that you will like. In fact, this is probably one of the best features you can have in an application of its kind.
Now, with the new update, you’ll be able to find your lost phone even if it’s offline. That is, you don’t need to be connected to the internet to give it commands to delete everything you have on your phone or block it.
“Find my smartphone” on Samsung smartphones works offline
The application implements the new functionality in version 7.1.08.0 of the application. This application needs to be registered with Samsung services in the “Galaxy Store”. So, it’s time to create an account if you don’t have it yet.
Losing your phone or forgetting your unlock pattern can be an uncomfortable situation. Especially if you have applications or sensitive content on that smartphone. So, this application gives you the security you need. Even if you lose it.
How the offline application works
Samsung explains how the new feature works. The update states that: “this feature will allow your phone to be found by other people’s Galaxy devices, even when not connected to a network. It will also allow your phone to be used to search for lost Galaxy devices that may be nearby. You can also find watches and earphones, if that was the last device they connected to“.
If something happens to your Samsung smartphone and you have this feature active, you only have to go to the official Samsung website here, to be able to find your phone.
