The NetQin anti-lost feature allows you to remotely locate your mobile phone if lost or stolen. So I am going to discuss in details how you can use this feature. But first, you have to download and install this app on your mobile phone before you could lose it, else you won’t be able to use this app. So download and install NetQin mobile security for your mobile phone version on your phone now before we proceed. But if you have already installed this app on your phone, you can continue with the guild below.

For Android Phones
How to use Netqin anti-lost feature to locate lost mobile phone:
Step 1: Am assuming you already have NetQin installed on your mobile device already, launch the NetQin application on your mobile phone.
Step 2: Open the Anti-lost option and enable the option as you can see on the image below.
Step 3: Set the password and reporting mobile number. Whenever your SIM is removed and another SIM is placed in your phone, the anti-lost feature of NetQin mobile security will send you an SMS of the new number. Store this new number very well because you will be contacting your phone remotely with it without the person holding the phone even noticing.
