https://myaccount.google.com gives you quick access to settings and tools that let you safeguard your data, protect your privacy and decide how your information can make Google services work better for you. You will have to sign in the Google account in the phone or tablet you are looking for if you have not already done so.


Go to Find Your Phone
Whether you forgot where you left it or it was stolen, a few steps here may help you secure your phone or tablet.

Select a Phone or Tablet
Here you will find the name of the device and then try some simple steps, like showing the location or locking the screen, to help you secure it. For your security, you may need to sign in after selecting a device.

Ring
Make your phone ring at full volume, even if it’s muted. (I hope you have a phone with long lasting battery, like Gionee M6, Tecno L9plus etc.

Locate
You can also use Android Device Manager to find your phone’s location on a map.

Lock your phone
In the event the phone is lost, you can lock the phone with the option of displaying a number you can be reached with on the locked screen in a message as this: “This phone is lost. Please help give it back.”

Other options you have is to sign out your Google account from the phone remotely and also erase the phone entirely.

You can actually do all these by downloading the Find my device app from Google PlayStore on a friend’s phone.

Nice tips but not valid in Nigeria..

I don't think you know the current population of Nigeria and the number of hoodlums willing to trade anything.

All these doesn't work when the android phone has been flashed. I tried all these when I lost my phone a year ago.

Best thing to do is start saving for a new one.

Prevention is better than cure.. prevent them from stealing your phone in the first place so you'll save yourself all the stress of retrieving it.

All that wont work if your location services are not turned on and if the phone is switched off.

Also, in a country where everyone wants to preserve battery life, who go won turn on location that drains battery?

These days, they steal your phone, they switch it off and take it to computer village and its wiped off. Not much you can do
