Google’s My Account is the best way to get an overview of your Google account. It allows for you to check the security of your account, associated apps and more. Today, to celebrate the first birthday of My Account, Google is introducing some new features.
The biggest feature is the ability to easily find your lost phone from your My Account page.
Find your phone is a new feature that will help you if your phone is ever lost or stolen. In a few simple steps, you can not only locate your phone, but also lock and call it, secure your account, leave a callback number on the screen, and more.
In addition to finding your lost phone from the My Account page, you will soon be able to take advantage of some accessibility options and access My Account easier. Starting today, Google will make it possible for you to access the My Account page from within the Google App using a simple phrase such as, “Ok Google, show me my Google account.”
The final change is another convenient one. We’ve all Googled our names before, but before there was no option to view your account from the results page. In a future update, when you search for your name, you will be greeted with a card within the results that will take you directly to the My Account page.
