    I haven't heard about it, and because of that, I will install one on my smartphone. I can't believe that it is possible, I thought it only works for Apple products.

    Likewise, I only know how to track an iPhone. I appreciate that someone has mentioned other means of tracking a stolen smartphone.

    your google account has tracking. you should be able to track your phone that way. also there are many apps that can help. just do a play store search.

    if you have google account created from your device, you can enter find my device on google search and then google display the location. Also, you can lock the phone and prevent losing data
