Scream Tones’ Find Your Lost Phone
T-Mobile customers now have access to a custom line-up of “Scream Tones” to help find a lost phone or tablet. Users can choose from six loud sounds including a wolf howl, train whistle, euro siren, a “beam me up” tone, the T-mobile jingle and Lookout’s original siren.
If (or when) you lose your Android device, you can go to mylookout.com to locate it on a Google map. Then you can force your phone or tablet to play the blaring siren — Lookout’s website warns, “Caution: it’s very loud” — for 60 seconds or until you find it.
If you aren’t a T-Mobile customer but still want the benefits of Lookout Mobile Security, you can find the company’s Lookout Mobile Security and Lookout Labs apps available on Google Play.
