A friend of mine has lookout.com installed on their Samsung Galaxy S7 cell phone. They claim if you can't find your phone it will help you when you log in from your computer. Has anyone tried out this or can recommend an application that will help you recover your lost phone? Thank you in advance.

These apps work just fine (as long as GPS is enabled). I've used them for years, both with an Android phone and Windows phones.

YES. I have an iPhone so only can talk about Apple's app. But if Samsung's app is as good as the iPhone, they definitely work. I have never lost my iPhone but play around with the app from time to time to keep this aging brain of mine refreshed. They work and are even fun to play with, PLUS more importantly, you should know how to use them BEFORE you need them.

Acadia, what is the name of the app you use on your iPhone? Did it come with the phone, or did you have to download it from the app store? Thanks.

It is called Find My iPhone and yes, I did have to download it from Apple.
