    Last night I suddenly realized I didn't know where my phone was.

    Began searching the house and the car I drove yesterday.

    No luck.

    I had been 3 places and could clearly remember having the phone as I went to the 3rd place but wasn't too sure about when I left there.

    Last I could remember it was in the pocket of my jacket.

    Quadruple checked jacket -- no phone.

    Searched the car in the dark and didn't find it.

    Later we got the bright idea to call the phone --- no phone ringing.

    This morning I grabbed my Surface Pro and tried to log into my bank accounts.

    Oh oh ---- said username / password invalid !!!! :( :( :(

    Oh my gawd someone has cleaned that account out.

    Fortunately, I am in the process of changing banks and only had a few hundred left in that bank ... but still.

    So I ran to the computer room and fired up this desktop and logged into the bank in question and all was well ==== whew!!! :) :) :)

    Money was still there.

    Something seems to have happened to the tablet that has messed up the password ... somehow.

    My owner uses it all day now since the laptop I had her using died .... but I'm not blaming her.

    Nope

    So then I went out to the car again and found it in the back seat floorboard. I had reached back there last night but missed it.

    So all is well now.

    But it left me cursing myself because many times I have seen the menu item in Settings for " Find my Phone " and just ignored it because < I > would certainly never lose that phone.

    Of course not.

    Well I made a Word file of that page and have it posted in the center of the desktop on the desktop now for the next time my dumbazz loses the phone.

    I read the instructions and now I know what to do and how to do it.

    It seems Microsoft is very good to us and gives us a way to lock / erase our phone and shut it down from any place where we can reach Microsoft on the Internet.

    Just a word of warning

    EVERYONE SHOULD LOOK UP THOSE DIRECTIONS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE SAVED / PRINTED OUT SO THEY CAN FIND THEM WHEN THEY NEED THEM.
