For the Individual User: Mobile Device Recovery
With the ubiquity of smart phones comes the ubiquity of people losing their smartphone!
People fail to realize how important their mobile device is to them until it is gone. Contact Information, Pictures, Passwords, Documents, and more – all can be gone with the loss of a phone. The LostAndFound.com Mobile App helps you “Find My Phone” by using the following features:
If, hypothetically, you know your mobile device is in the immediate vicinity, the following functionalities can be applied to help you find it. All you need to do is log in to your LostAndFound.com account and access the My Account Area.
Alarm / Scream Mode – (affects the eyes, ears, and feeling) This turns the sound all the way up on your phone and sends out an audible alarm even if your phone sound is turned off (Silent Mode). In addition, the screen will light up and flash to assist you at night. It will function even if there is no cell signal, provided a wifi signal is available.
Remote Picture – You can instruct the phone to take a picture remotely, and send it to your email address. By recognizing what it is in the picture, you can ascertain the location. Great when at home and you leave it in the car!
In this scenario, you have no idea where your phone is. The following functions will help you recover it!
Address Location: Provided your phone is pinged in a location that has been mapped with addresses (not in a cave, or aboard a ship), your LostAndFound.com Mobile App will provide the approximate address to you. Put the address in your car GPS and go pick it up!
Home Page Messenger: The messenger allows you to place a text message on your mobile device to alert the finder for specific instructions. Give the finder instructions on what do or who to call when your phone is found.
Lock Phone: Keep it private! Lock your phone remotely so your data cannot be accessed.
Map Location: Using the mapping provided in the My Account area of LostAndFound.com, you can ping your mobile device and locate it on a map.
Remote Picture: You can instruct the phone to take a picture remotely, and send it to your email address. By recognizing what it is in the picture, you can ascertain the location. Great when at home and you leave it in the car!
Wipe Phone: Erase all data on your phone. While you may never get your phone back, at least whomever finds it won’t have your data.
For the Individual User: Lost And Found Recovery
The LostAndFound.com Mobile App provides a variety of functions to help recover anything else that you might lose in your day to day activities. Linked to the website, LostAndFound.com, the mobile app provides many important and unique features to help recover your lost pets or property.
Fundamentally, one can do on the mobile app almost everything that is present on the website. However, there are some unique mobile features, not seen on the website.
Local Radial Alert: If you have lost something in your immediate vicinity (like a runaway dog), you can distribute your Lost Report via a Local Radial Alert, which alerts all LostAndFound.com Mobile App Users* within a defined radius of your present location.
PIN Function: The PIN Function allows mobile app users the ability to “pin” the location of a loss, so that they may return later to try and recovery the item. Once an item is “pinned” its location is set on a map, and can be distributed to other users for search and rescue purposes. (Imagine if something fell out of a vehicle, or down a hill – you can “pin” it to come back and look for it later)
Reporting Function: Using the mobile app, your location information (city, state, zip) and contact information is pre-loaded. So reporting is quick and efficient. Just click a pic, give a short description, and you are good to go!
* Users must agree to receive these alerts.
For the Business or Organization User: Lost And Found Recovery
Customer service is the number one priority for most businesses. Provide care and concern for your patrons’ lost and found issues by using LostAndFound.com and the LostAndFound.com Mobile App with your employees or volunteers.
The LostAndFound.com Mobile App directly interacts with your venue page on the website. Like a profile page on a social networking website, a Venue Page reflects the lost and found information for your location only. Use your Venue Page combined with the mobile app, and you have a very quick and powerful lost and found reporting system.
Have your employees download the LostAndFound.com Mobile App, and connect to your Venue Page through your venue page administrator. Features include:
Employee Lost or Found Alerts: Send an “SOS” Alert for a patron’s lost item to all of your employees in real time to quickly alert and recover the item. Only your employees will receive the alert, so you can have “all eyes” on the hunt ASAP. (Great for Park Rangers, Restaurant Employees, Taxi Companies and more!)
Reporting Function: Using the mobile app, your location information (business address) and contact information is pre-loaded. So reporting is quick and efficient. Just click a pic, give a short description, and you are good to go!
