You send attention words to your lost device to either locate it or let it rings.
If you lost your device, you can send a message to it and then your phone will start ringing and this image will appear on your phone and it will start ringing.
To enable this option:
- Open G Cloud app on your device.
- Go to Settings.
- Tap the Find my Android option.
- Enable the Use Find My Andrid option.
- Enable the Use SMS locator option → Set the Locate Message and the Ring Message.
- Tap on Done.
The Ring Message is the text you want to send to your device in order for it to start ringing. Make sure that you use a unique code, because any text that contains this text will let G Cloud consider it as ring message and the phone will start ringing.
The Locate Message is the text you want to send to your device in order for G Cloud to send you a message that contains a map for your device’s location. You should have the GPS or the Location Settings enabled, and your device should be connected to the Internet for this option to work.
