We want to zoom in on simply finding your lost BlackBerry. Maybe you forgot it the bar or the train, or wherever else. Here’s what you’ve got to do to get it back.
The first step is taking the right precautions and setting up Protect before you lose your BlackBerry. From the home screen, swipe down from the top, and tap settings. Now scroll down and tap BlackBerry Protect. Make sure the BlackBerry Protect toggle is switched to on. After that, dive into the Location Services button, and make sure Location Services is enabled there.
Now that Protect is working, go out and lose your phone. Go on, I dare you. Okay, fine, don’t, but let’s say you do. Punch in protect.blackberry.com on the first browser you can get hold of after learning you lost your BlackBerry. Log in using your BlackBerry ID credentials - these are the same ones you set when you first booted up your Z10, Q10, or Q5, and the same password you use to authenticate BlackBerry World purchases.
From here, it’s a simple matter of clicking View Location from the menu items in the web browser. It might take awhile to get a lock, and you may be out of luck if your BlackBerry’s battery has died,
