Find my Mobile

Samsung Find My Mobile App

Drawing a close comparison to Apple’s Find my iPhone app, Find my Mobile essentially does the same job, just for Samsung based phones. As you’d expect, it keeps a pinpoint on your registered devices’ locations, as long as it’s connected to the internet of course.

Not only does it keep a track on your handsets though, it also has the ability to wipe it at your command, lock it, ring it or even let you know when someone is attempting to change the sim card. This makes it an invaluable piece of software if your phone is to go missing, and deters criminals from selling it on.

Also, if someone makes a call from your smartphone, the app even has access to the call log, giving you, and the Police something to work off. Put simply, it might not be as famous as Find my iPhone, but it arguably does a better job than its Apple equivalent.
