The fastest way to find your phone


The average person spends nearly three hours a day on their phone. That means that we spend 45 days a year texting, tapping and swiping on our mobile devices. Considering how much we use our phones every day, it’s kind of shocking how frequently they get misplaced. Of course, with Tile finding your phone is as easy as pressing a button (twice). 

With this in mind, we wanted to show you an easy way you can use a Tile to make finding your phone even easier: 

- Purchase or activate a new Tile. Name it something like “Find my Phone.” 

- Place this Tile in a semi-permanent place in your home or office. This should be someplace where you know it will not be easily moved. Think about hanging it on your wall on a key ring or affixing underneath your desk or countertop. 

- Whenever your phone goes missing at home, or at the office, simply walk up to your designated find-your-phone Tile, and double press the button. As long as you’re within the 100-foot Bluetooth range, your phone will start ringing and you can locate it by sound — just like Tile.
