But fortunately, there's a powerful software – AirDroid, which can help you find your Android phone when you can't find it anywhere.
Below is the step on how to find your Android with AirDroid. What you need to do first is to download AirDroid on Android, and open AirDroid Web on your PC browser. After that, let's start the tutorial.
Step 1. Enable "Find Phone" on Android
