Find My Phone helps secure your data

We carry a mind-boggling amount of information on our phones
these days. And yet, we’re not always that careful with them. If you lose your
new Windows Phone, you can use the Find My Phone feature to protect your data
in several ways:


  • If you think your phone is close by but you
    don’t have access to another phone, go to windowsphone.live.com
    on any computer and make your phone ring.

  • If your phone is farther away, go to windowsphone.live.com
    and map your phone’s location.

  • If you’re worried about someone getting to your
    phone before you do, you can lock your phone or even erase
    it, remotely.
