Guide on how to Locate lost Huawei P30:
If you have lost your phone or it is stolen. This guide will make you accustomed to the first few steps that you need to take as your phone is lost or stolen. So you can get it back before someone else gets his hands on it. Or before someone takes it away somewhere out of your reach and turns it off.
In this guide, we will use an Android-based service named Google find my device. It allows you to remotely access your phone and its location. This service works on all Android phones. All you need is your email ID and password that you used to set up your Huawei phone.
Google find my phone not only allows you to see the current location of your phone on Google Maps. It also lets you lock your phone and set a new password on it. You can also display a custom message on the display screen of your stolen P30 that “This phone is lost if found, contact on this number”. You can also use this service to make your phone ring at full volume if it is lost inside the office or home but it is on silent. If you are sure that your P30 or P30 pro is lost forever or stolen by someone. You can delete all the data present in it using Google Find my Device.
Steps on how to track and locate stolen P30 or Huawei P30 Pro:
- First of all, go to Google find my device or install its app on your iOS or Android Device.
- Once installed, log in using the same email that you used to set up your P30. The same email that you used to download apps from Play Store.
- Now that you are logged in. You will see the current location of your phone on Google Maps if it is connected to the internet and its location services are on. If your phone is off or not connected to the internet. You will see the last location where it was on and connected to the internet.
- Here, you can perform other function on your lost P30 phone. Just as in the screenshot below. Like if you can see it on the map but still can’t locate it. Maybe try to make it ring using the “Play Sound” option. Your phone will ring at its maximum volume.
I hope this guide helped you to recover and locate lost Huawei P30. I understand that these methods have some limitations and constraints which the people who steal your phone also understand. So the first thing they do is turn off the phone. So, it gets really hard to get your phone back.
Furthermore, if you still can’t find your phone. Make sure to delete all the data present in it. Also, inform your carrier provider or police to lock your phone using the IMEI number. You can find IMEI of your phone on the box of your phone.
