After signed in to Find My Device, you'll see a map with your current location as well as the make and model of your phone, and two options — Play Sound, and Enable Lock & Erase. Then you can choose either option to carry out your operations.

However, to use Find My Device, your lost device must meet the following conditions:

● Be turned on

● Be signed in to a Google Account

● Be connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi

● Be visible on Google Play

● Have Location turned on

● Have Find My Device turned on

At last, we advise that you can do some measures to keep your data safe and avoid disclosure of personal information.

First at all, you need set up a security code for the lock screen of your HONOR phone. You are able to access your security settings by going to Settings>Security>Screen lock. Then you can choose which security method you’d like to use from there.

To take your lock screen one step closer, you should set up a lock screen owner message. You can access this setting by heading to Settings>Security>Owner info. Your name, email address or any other form of contact on your lock screen can be chosen to display from here. This is a very simple step but it could really help you out in the long run.
