Here Is How Google Photos Helped A Guy In Finding His Lost Phone



Phone thefts is one of the most common subjects of daily crimes. With the number of smartphone users blooming at a high rate, the number of phones stolen on a daily basis has only risen.

Out of the hundreds of smartphone users who are robbed off their smartphone, some of them are fortunate enough to get hold of their device again. Nitish Jalan was one of those few lucky people.

Writing an answer to the Quora question, "Did you ever find your Lost Phone?", Nitish described how the services of Google Photos helped him in finding his lost Android phone. Here is what he wrote:

Google Photos helped me. :)
I lost my mobile almost 4 months back. It was actually stolen from my room. I tried calling etc. etc. but then just lost hope and gave up.
But, I had my contacts, photos etc all synced with my Google Account hence it was not a concern and I have already bought a new phone.
A month later I found some random pics/selfies of the flat's caretaker on my Google Photos. I thought he might have mistakenly shared it on my whatsapp or something. When I checked everywhere there was no possible source except my old phone's auto sync.
I checked the image details and found the pic’s device details to be my old phone and location near to my rented flat. I called up the caretaker and threatened him by showing pics and that I will tell the owner etc. Then he agreed that he picked it from my room and gave it back to me.
To my luck he was not literate enough to format the phone and logout the apps.
And yes I live in India. :D
