The Tile community is always working to help each other keep track of their things.
When a person with the Tile app open and running on their smartphone or tablet walks within Bluetooth range of any Tile, their app will automatically and anonymously update the location of that Tile! The Tile’s owner will then be able to see their Tile’s updated location on the map! This location isn’t shared with the person who updated it - it’s for your eyes only!
If you’re looking for your Tile and you can’t ring it, nor is it where the map in the app is showing it was last seen by your device, you can request to be notified when someone updates your Tile’s location!
Here’s how to ask to be notified when your Tile’s location is updated anonymously:
- Open the app on your device
- Tap on the Tile that you’re looking for
- Tap the blue button that says “Notify When Found”
- Confirm when prompted.
*If you look in your Tile’s profile, the gray moving circle around your lost item means that you’ve selected “Notify When Found” for that item.
Now you’ve just enlisted the power of the entire Tile community! How’s that for a search party? The moment someone with the Tile app passes by your missing Tile, you will immediately receive an email and in-app notification showing you when and where it was found!
You then have the option to anonymously thank the helpful community member who updated your missing Tile’s location. I’m sure they would appreciate the gesture!

Most people lose their things around their family, friends and/or co-workers -- which makes them VIP members of your own personal search party!
