The FoundThem Phone Tags work by using a unique image as your lock screen. The lock screen consists of a background with the text, “Have you found a lost phone? We can help reunite the owner with this phone. Please scan the QR Code or enter the URL.” You then see a QR code that the finder can scan with their own device. It’s an ingenious service and one that everyone can appreciate. Let’s take a closer look at these digital phone tags.

How do these device finders work?

Once you receive a digital phone tag, you’ll get an image that’s sized for any device with a lock screen. Simply apply the image to your lock screen so that if anyone finds it, the digital phone tag is the first thing the finder sees when they pick up your phone. Once someone has found your lost phone, they can either scan the aforementioned QR code with their device or type in the URL. Then they will use the form to type in the unique seven-digit code that is assigned to each user. Next, the FoundThem team coordinates shipping to you, completely separate from the finder. You never contact each other or learn anything about one another. It is a safe, organized process.

How secure are these virtual phone tags?

Anyone who buys a FoundThem product—including the Phone Tags—can be sure that their identity is safe even if their item is lost. The FoundThem team does all communication with the finder. All you have to do is report that the item is missing. If your seven-digit code is used, the company contacts you to arrange delivery. It sounds simple, and it is. So, the next time you misplace your iPhone 12, you can have peace of mind.

Are returns easy for the finder?

Yes, they are. FoundThem Phone Tags actually make it easier to be a good Samaritan because the service gives the finder a hassle-free way to do the right thing. All they have to do is scan the QR code, and these digital phone tags make the rest of the process a breeze. So no more worrying about a finder having to jump through hoops and maybe even meet you in person to return your lost device. Now, you can breathe easier knowing that you made the return as simple and safe as possible for both of you.
