Dear /e/ developers,
After my wife lost her phone in the forest I found out, that there is a really convenient thing missing:
Find my phone (I never used such a thing because I didn’t trust google. well, that’s not the problem here, is it?)
In settings you can connect “find my phone” to your /e/ account.
if you log in on your /e/ account online, you can try to connect to your phone, switch on GPS and get the location data. This could also be used as a tracker, depending on settings. I don’t need that, but some users might want to have one…
It could even be convenient sometimes to send a beep signal to the phone, so it can be found.
all that could be solved even throug toggling some .txt files in the /e/ cloud, assuming the nextcloud synchronisation works well.
unfortunately I couldn’t find my wife’s phone within three hours, and then it turned off - for whatever reason. Also the backup didn’t work, as I found out, so we have quite some loss here…
