If you lose your phone with MIUI associated with your Xiaomi account, the Find Device feature in Mi Cloud can help you find, ring, lock and erase it.

Turn on Find Device

In order for Find Device to work, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Sign in your Xiaomi account on your phone.
  • Make sure there’s an Internet connection using either Wi-Fi or mobile data on your phone.
  • Make sure the Find device option is enabled in the Mi Cloud settings on your phone.

Note: If your phone is offline, Find Device won’t be able to control the phone remotely until there’s a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.

Once the Mi Cloud detects your phone online, you can locate, ring, lock and erase your phone remotely.

i. Find Device
  • Go to the Mi Cloud website and login using your Xiaomi ID.
  • On the Mi Cloud homepage, make sure your phone appears Online, then click Find Device.

  • Next, you should see the phone’s approximate location on Google Maps.
  • Optionally, you can click Baidu at the top left corner for Baidu map.

ii. Ring your device remotely
  • On the Find Device page, click the Alarm button.
  • On the Play Alarm prompt, click Play alarm.
  • The phone will play the default alarm sound at the highest volume until you manually disable it on the phone.

ii. Lock you device remotely
  • On the Find Device page, click the Lock button.
  • Enter the 4-digit PIN that you want to lock your phone, then hit Lock.
  • On your phone, enter the 4-digit PIN you have set in Step 2 to unlock the phone. Upon successfully unlocking,  the screen lock security will be set to None.

iii. Factory reset your device remotely
  • On the Find Device page, click the Wipe button.
  • On the Erase data dialog box, click Erase data. When you’re prompted for a confirmation, click Delete. Note: This process will delete all the data from both the phone and external SDcard storages.

Note: If you have your Redmi associated with a Google account, you can also use Android Device Manager to track and remote control the phone.

Note: The steps here were written for Android 4.2.2 on a Redmi (HM1W). If you’re having a different model of Redmi or other version of MIUI, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.

i tried similar apps, where is my droid which have quite a cool feature, unique stealth mode simcard change detector, we can silently activate the gps on the phone without the gps logo appear on the phone, so the 'new owner' wont know.....the sim card change detector is also quite handy, whenever a new simcard is inserted, the program will detect and rcord it, and whenever internet connection is available, the program will send the secret info to pre setup-ed email or phone number....

how cool is that???

hope the devs read this and will be working on it to implement these two features built-in miui....
