How to lock your Xiaomi in case of theft or loss

If your Xiaomi has been lost or stolen, it is very likely that you are wondering how you can lock it remotely . The truth is that doing it is very simple and for this you only need to make use of the Xiaomi cloud, that is, My Cloud .

In addition to being able to locate our Xiaomi or even make it sound remotely , Mi Cloud allows us to activate the lost mode on our smartphone , be it a Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO, in order to block its access and therefore prevent anyone from being able to see our data stored in this.

If we activate the lost mode this will chain certain actions on our smartphone:

  • The device will be blocked when connecting to the network. In order to access, you will have to enter the username and password of the associated My account.
  • MIUI will try to regularly update the information regarding the location. If your device is turned off, an SMS message will be sent to try to locate it.
  • The cards associated as payment methods will be automatically eliminated.

If unfortunately your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO have been lost or stolen, we recommend that you activate the lost mode as soon as possible . To do this, it will be enough to carry out the following steps:

  1. Go to i.mi.com and log in with your Mi account.
  2. Once inside, you just have to access the " Find device " section and then locate the smartphone that you have lost or stolen in the list.
  3. After that, all you have to do is press and activate the « Lost mode «

In addition, before activating the lost mode, Xiaomi allows us to customize the message that will be displayed on the device screen , as well as a contact telephone number. Thus, if someone finds it, they can contact you and return it to you.

In this way, anyone who tries to access the data of our lost mobile device will not be able to unless they have the authentication data of our MI account . Of course, this change will only be activated if the device continues to have Internet access.

  1. Can someone assist me with a locked phone. I tried to sell my redmi phone, but it wouldn't activate sim cards of the new owner. He returned, but I have since struggled to unlocked after he applied factory reset on the phone. I've consulted Google who told me that the problem is not on their since I can verify my Google account on the phone. I have also consulted Xiaomi support who simply referred me to Google. This is really frustrating. Please help

    1. Because your account is hijacked. You should report immediately your lost SIM card to your carrier.
      Thieft just use your active sim card to resset your password and when he have access to your mi cloud, he just remove your number associated with your account.
      Sorry bun nothing you can do anymore!

  10. If you have enabled Find My Device feature on your Xiaomi phone, you can log in to your Mi account on another device and use this feature to remotely lock your phone. You can also locate your device, ring it, or erase the data on it.
