Hello friends! The manufacturer Xiaomi can be proud that MIUI is one of the most complete Android custom ROMs that exist. The integration with Mi accounts, will allow you to access a utility that allows you to track and locate your phone to find out where it is. Something very useful if you have lost it or it has been stolen. It is important to have your Mi account linked to your device, to take advantage of these functions. Therefore, in this post, we will show you how to track your Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO phone from your Mi account.
Enable the Mi account on your phone
In case you have a Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO phone you can access the option to locate your phone thanks to MIUI. You must enable it for the first time to be able to use it later. To do this, the first thing is that you log in to your phone. If you do not have an account, create it from the Mi Account section in the settings. It is a fairly simple and quick process, but it is worth it because it will increase the security of your phone. Once you have done this, just follow these steps.
Then go to Mi Account
After that, click on Xiaomi Cloud
Finally, click on Find Device and enable the option.
You should note that it is possible to activate an option to report the location automatically when the battery is low, as well as just before the phone is turned off. These are complementary options that it is advisable to activate to be forewarned if the phone is lost and the battery is low. This way you can get the last location of your phone before the battery runs out.
To disable the option on your phone, you will have to enter the password of your Mi account, so no one can disable this option on your phone or tablet unless they have your password.
Track your Xiaomi phone from your Mi account
After you have finished setting up your Mi account and initial settings. Now everything is set for you to locate your phone, something you can do both from another phone and a computer, as long as your smartphone is turned on and can access the location services. To do this, follow these steps:
Go to i.mi.com and log in with your Xiaomi account
Then click on Find device
After that, you will access a map on which you will see the location of your smartphone or tablet. In addition to offering you the options to make it ring, lock it and put it in lost mode, or erase all the contents of the phone to safeguard your data.
Of course, having this option enabled does not mean that you will always be able to recover your phone. Because if someone finds it they can turn it off directly, but at least it gives you a chance to track it. In addition, when Xiaomi devices are linked to a Mi account it is much more complicated to factory reset them. Because every time it is restored it will ask you to log in with the Mi account. This is a smart way to protect your phone in case of lost or stolen. Thanks for reading us. Bye!
