SmartThings Find is a service from Samsung that can be accessed through any web browser. Similar to Apple's Find My service, it can help you remotely locate and control your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet.

With SmartThings Find, you can access a number of features, such as Track Location, which automatically sends updated location information of your device every 15 minutes. Other features include Ring, Lock Screen, and Show Information, which displays a message with contact information so that people who find your phone can get in touch with you.

How to activate SmartThings Find:

Before using SmartThings Find to locate your lost phone, you will need to activate it. Follow these steps:
1. Go to Settings on your Samsung Galaxy phone.
2. Scroll down and click on Security and privacy.
3. Click on Find My Mobile, then select "Allow this phone to be found."
4. A list of options will appear. Activate the "Allow this phone to be found" option.
5. For added security, activate the other options in the list: Remote unlock, Send last location, and Offline finding.

To use SmartThings Find to locate your lost Samsung phone, follow these steps:

If you lose your phone and need to locate it, go to the Smart Things Find website in your browser and log in using your Samsung account. You will see a list of your Samsung devices that the service was able to locate.

If the service locates your lost device, it will display it on the map, and you will be able to see the battery level and the type of internet connection if your device is connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data.

SmartThings Find can locate your lost device even if it is not turned off and is connected to the internet. For this reason, Samsung offers a feature to remotely adjust power settings through SmartThings Find to extend the battery life of lost devices and give you more time to locate them before they shut down due to battery depletion.

What do you do after locating your phone through SmartThings Find?

If you lose your phone and SmartThings Find service is able to locate it, you may want to ensure that it is not with someone else. This service allows you to check your phone's location once every 15 minutes, helping you determine if it is in a specific location or with someone else. If the phone's location changes after 15 minutes, you'll know that someone may have taken it, and you can use the Ring feature to access your phone. 

SmartThings Find can help you locate your lost Samsung phone with more accuracy using the Ring feature, which will make the phone ring loudly regardless of the ring mode you set before losing the phone, whether it's high or silent. To make your lost phone ring, follow these steps:
- Click the Ring option on the SmartThings Find page.
- Select Start in the pop-up window.
- Your device will ring for one minute, allowing you to locate it.
