Locate device

Note This feature is not available for certain device types.

You can display the location of your device in Google Maps, for example if it is lost or stolen.

  2. In the Sophos Central Self Service portal, click Mobile and then click the relevant device.
  3. Click Actions > Locate.
    A task is created and sent to the device.
  4. In the device details, click View Details next to Location to view the location of your device in Google Maps.
