Xiaomi Cloud, the Xiaomi cloud, hides certain features that you should definitely know about. Beyond being able to locate our smartphone or even make it ring even if it is in silent mode, we can also block it if we have lost it or it has been stolen.
Thanks to lost mode, we can block access to our Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO remotely and thus prevent anyone who finds it or has stolen it from having access to our photographs, videos, social networks, etc.
When activating the lost mode, the device in question will be blocked, being necessary to start our Mi Account to unlock it. What’s more, MIUI will regularly update the location, sending an SMS if necessary to establish a better location. Likewise, access to the different means of payment that we have established (My Pay, Google Pay…) will also be blocked.
