It is imperative to know about the hidden functionalities of the Xiaomi Cloud. It is not only possible to locate our smartphones or to make them ring even if they are in silent mode, but also to block them when they have been lost or stolen.
By activating the lost mode, the device in question will be blocked. In order to unlock it, you will need to access your My Account page. Additionally, MIUI will send an SMS if necessary to maintain a better location. As well as blocking access to popular payment methods (My Pay, Google Pay…), we will also block access to the different payment methods the company has established.
How to lock your Xiaomi if it has been stolen or you have lost it
Fortunately, locking your Xiaomi remotely is a simple and quick task if it has been stolen or lost. The steps are as follows:
- Please visit the official website of the Xiaomi Cloud and log in at: https://i.mi.com/
- Once inside, all you need to do is navigate to the section “Find device” and select the device.
- After that, click on “Lost mode” and accept the terms.
Using this approach, we can secure our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO phone when it is lost or stolen.
