How to Lock Your Windows 10 PC Remotely

Windows Header Image

Android and Apple have long given people a way to track and disable your gadgets remotely. Microsoft has also joined the club by letting you track and lock your Windows PC using the “Find My Device” on Windows 10.

Find My Device uses your device’s location data to help you find it when it’s lost or stolen. You can use the same service to make sure that the device is locked so that no one can use it, and also to display information about how people can return it to you.

The device needs to meet a couple of requirements to use the feature:

  • It must be connected to the Internet.
  • You must have already enabled Find My Device on the PC.
  • You must have an account on the device that has administrator privileges and is a Microsoft account. You can’t do this with a local user account

 

Assuming your device meets those criteria, let’s take a look at how to use Find My Device.
