    Hi Brink,
    Insider Preview 10576 and the current 10586 have a "Find my device" feature under Update & Security ".
    Does it work more or less like your tutorial ?
    I have not tried the Find my device feature from my PC because I assume it only works with Windows Phone.
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    If my smartphone is not Windows Phone, it won't work if I misplace my smartphone. Right ?
