The Tile app is essential to have when you’re away from home—and it’s so easy to use.

If you lose the item the Tile is attached to, you can use the app to make it ring. And if you lose your phone? Just press the Tile itself to make your phone ring, even if it’s on silent. If your lost item is not within range of your phone, the app will show you a map marking the item’s location.
