We cannot deny the chance when our devices such as laptops or tablets are vulnerable to get lost or stolen and it is not only the loss of money but also of the private files and critical information as we keep our important stuff saved in these platforms. Whether the bank card details or the personal photos, anything can be misused. Microsoft Support Service provides a solution for such circumstances by allowing us the facility to find and lock a windows device with the help of the Microsoft account. The feature “Find my device” enables you to locate and erase your device to protect the critical information.
