You lost your mobile already? and you didn't installed any of the Apps above?

        No Problem, like in military we have a Plan B. No! The app name is Plan B, It is designed for the worst cases like i mentioned above. Plan B is an developed by LookOut Mobile Security. It is one of the best conceptual app for Finding your Lost Android.

How it works?

1) Install Plan B through PlayStore website.
2) Once installation is successfull, The Plan B starts to send recent location of your Android. It will keep on sending the location details to your Gmail ID, when the phone's location is changing.
3) To locate again, text the word 'locate' to your lost phone. And you will get the location details in your friend's phone.

Other method to finding the Lost Android phone is using Google Latitude. Since we are Android users, we have Google's latitude is Pre-installed in our mobile. So using Latitude, you can find the last location of your Lost Android.

Note: The methods of Plan B and Google Latitude are secondary methods. I advise you to use the other apps which i have mentioned above. If your phone is already lost and you didn't installed any of the app which i have mentioned, you can go for Plan B and Google Latitude.

Apart from the above Apps, there are also other apps which perform well for Protecting or Finding your Lost Android Phones.
