How Do I Find My Phone on Silent?

Personally, I’ve lost count of the times I’ve misplaced my phone on silent, only to launch a full-scale manhunt around my living space. If you think you’re alone, think again! According to a survey by YouGov, a staggering 45% of people lose their phones at home, and 26% of those occur when the phone is on silent. So, I was battling the same demon as a quarter of the surveyed population, searching manually without any way to make my phone announce its hiding spot.

Luckily, developers and companies haven’t left us alone, and they have provided us with some tools and Apps that let us find phones on silent.

In this article, I will show you the best 5 tools I use to find my phone on silent without having to dig into my office.

Google Find My Phone – Android Device Manager

Google itself has provided a way to find your phone whether it’s misplaced or stolen by using Android Device Manager or Find My Phone service.

Android Device Manager is a web-based service that allows you to send a whistle, ring, lock, or permanently delete all the data on your phone.

All you have to do to use the Android Device Manager is to head into the Google Find My Device website and sign in with your Google Account credentials. But you must first enable the remote controls from your phone to be able to fully control it via the Device Manager portal.

To enable Find My Phone options in your device, first, open your phone’s “Settings”, click on “Google”, then click on “Security.”Google Find My Phone - Android Device Manager
