Hi!

There is one option available through Android Device Manager even though you didn't have a tracking app installed.

Sign into your account if requested

Here are the only ways that you can track it:

  • Your device is connected with your Google account.
  • Your device has access to the internet.
  • Allowed Android Device Manager (ADM) to locate your device (turned on by default). This can changed in the Google Settings app.
  • Allowed ADM to lock your device and erase its data (turned off by default).
