How 2 Million Tiles Worldwide Helps You Find Your Stuff

We all know the feeling - you reach for something you need and it's not there. We built Tile to alleviate that anxiety with an effective solution that works in a number of ways. When an object is not misplaced, but actually lost in the wild, that's where the Tile Community can help. We have a vast network of people who can help you find your lost Tiled objects.

That's why we're so excited to share our community maps today. These maps show the last 24 hours of where Tile is across the globe. If you lose something, every Tile community member can help you find it simply by walking within 100 feet of your lost object. Every phone with a running Tile app is an anonymous access point for the World's Largest Lost and Found. We call this feature Community Find. The Tile community has your back; Tilers have helped each other find thing big and small, miles away or days later. The Tile Community has even found a Car & Stolen bike in the last 5 weeks.

We're proud of having shipped over two million Tiles in less than a year. Even though we only ship to the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand right now, we are so excited to see community members in 214 countries and territories around the world. For me that shows market validation but speaks to how this is a global problem we are solving. In fact, three of our top 18 cities are international: London (#7), Toronto (#14), and Sydney (#16).

Top 18 Cities Where Tile Community Members are Located

As we continue to grow the Tile community, we look forward to seeing more and more blue on these maps. If you're not in a blue zone, grab a four pack of Tiles and start a micro-community of your own. With our free app and sharing feature, it's easy to help your family and friends Tile what matters most to them. Check out our maps page (avail. 6/17) to see the range of locations where people are Tiling. If you have a story to tell, we'd love to hear from you.
