    Samsung SmartThings has over 200 million nodes that can help find lost devices

    Samsung has announced that its SmartThings Find service has grown rapidly over the past year. There are now over 200 million SmartThings Find-compatible nodes worldwide, and they can help find lost or misplaced devices. Find nodes are smartphones or other mobile devices registered with SmartThings Find.

    SmartThings Find lets Samsung users find misplaced or stolen smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, wireless earbuds, and even personal belongings like keys (via SmartTag and SmartTag+). The service uses Bluetooth LE and UWB to find devices. Even when a device is outside the range of the user's phone or tablet, SmartThings Find can still take the help of other SmartThings Find-compatible smartphones to locate the device.

    Since location data is highly personal and sensitive, SmartThings Find encrypts the location data using Samsung Knox's defense-grade security. The location data of a lost device is only visible to its owner. They can also allow their friends and family members to find the location of the missing device together.

    TM Roh, Samsung MX President, said, “We're proud and excited to see the rapid growth of the SmartThings Find service. In less than two years, 200 million devices have opted in to help fellow Samsung Galaxy users find their misplaced devices — making it one of the fastest growing services at Samsung.
