Parent Keeps “Losing” Their Phone?

Your loved one is frequently misplacing their smartphone while at home.

Solution Details


The easiest way to set this up is to just speak to Alexa by saying “Alexa, find my phone”

Alexa will verbally guide you through the setup process.


If this doesn’t work for you, there is another method to install the Alexa Skill

You could set up the “Find my phone” Skill by using the Alexa app logged into their account as follows:

  • Tap More
  • Tap “Skills & Games”
  • Tap the “magnifying glass” in the upper right corner
  • Type “Find my phone” in the search box
  • Tap “Alexa find my phone”
  • Tap Launch
  • Log into their Amazon account
  • Exit the setup when instructed

Then say this… “Alexa, find my phone” and you will be verbally guided through the setup.
