First, pat yourself on the back for doing good.
The person who lost their item will be very grateful for your help!
Next, be safe!
Wherever you update the location of the app is where the Tile’s owner will know to come find it. If you don’t want that person to visit you at home or at work (or wherever you are) please make sure to take the Tile to a safe public location, like a Police Station or the front desk of where you found it, before you run the app and send the notification.
Follow these steps to make sure the Tile and lost item get back to their owner:
- Download the app and register for an account. (Don’t worry, it’s totally free!)
- Find a safe location where you’d like to leave the Tiled item.
- Log in and run the app next to the Tile for 2-5 minutes.
- Leave the Tile in the safe location, as the owner will now be notified of its location
And that’s it! You’ve just used the power of the Tile Network.
With the Tile app open on your device within range of the Tile, your app has automatically sent an anonymous location update to the Tile account the Tile is registered to! As long as you didn’t close the app (running in the background is fine!) that user can come and find their Tile wherever you are!
