It gave an approximate area but still helped save the day. Someone picked up my girlfriend's phone and she didn't notice it was gone for about 30 minutes. We were at an amusement park, so with the approximate location we knew it was around a certain ride. We asked the exployees at the entrance and exit, no one had seen it. I finally looked inside the garbage can half way through the entrance queue and there it was! Thanks to Find my device we were able to retrieve the phone.

By far one of the better location apps I've ever used, and I've used quite a few. Does exactly what it says it does. You can remotely wipe a device - and yes I've tried that before and it works. You can locate a device on the map and it is extremely accurate. You can also make the device sound off by ringing. Very easy to use, intuitive. No ads of course. This device is best used when given Admin Privilege in settings.

If the device has been signed out of the Google account, already been factory reset, or has been damaged, this is completely useless. HOWEVER, it does work well as long as the app is installed on the device you're trying to locate and the afore-mentioned issues don't hinder it. I'd suggest that a 2nd PIN setting could be added in this app to prevent factory reset of the device or the uninstall of locator app before its found. I use a free app-locker now, which seems to be effective so far. 🤞🤞
