    Find My Device Missing & Tracking Not Available


    I've been upgrading all my family's computers to Windows 10, and none of them have the "Find My Device" option under Updates in Settings. Even when logging in to their account on the MS website the "Find My Device" option is missing. They are all up-to-date and have build 1511. All are logged in to a MS account. I do have Spybot Anti-Beacon installed to disable some privacy features (though disabling it doesn't help), so would this be the cause of my issue (even completely removing the option in Settings and the website)? If not does anyone else know why. This is on over half a dozen PC's and I can't figure it out. Thanks!

    Find my device is only available on mobile and portable devices (phones, laptops, tablets). Your system specs show you have a desktop PC. Not knowing what kind of computers the others you mention are but assuming they are desktops, too, then there's nothing you can do.
