So I left my phone at a business on accident over the weekend, I tried to use the Samsung "Find my mobile" app and it thinks my s10+ is a watch and says it can't find it. So I go to the Google "find my device" app and it said location service off unable to locate. I also could not locate it with my watch. So I got my phone back and come to find out I don't have the Samsung "find my mobile" app on it and I can not find remote control settings anywhere after tons of research.
Galaxy S10+ on Verizon USA
Located under Settings>Biometrics & Security>Find My Mobile, you do not see an option for Find my device?
You would have needed to enable a Samsung Account to be attached and you would be able to locate the device using this setting as long as location-based services are turned on.
Can you provide a screenshot of the settings you see under Biometrics & Security?
Thank you so much for providing that information. However, We would recommend calling in directly to have a live agent remote into the device to help ensure everything is properly set up and test the functions to assist with your concerns.
You can reach them directly at 1-800-SAM-SUNG for further assistance with remotely taking a look at your issue with accessing the features here: https://findmymobile.samsung.com/
Hope this message finds you well!
Thank you for that information, Just to make sure i have the correct understanding.
The screenshot you provided us with is the Built in to your phone, Find my Mobile by Samsung.
Find my device by Google LLC can be downloaded here at this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.adm
Do you already have this downloaded and the Application permissions set to on for location-based services?
Settings>Applications>Find my device>Permissions>Location.

7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.

It is in fact NOT the built in Find my mobile app from Samsung. If you look it is Find my DEVICE from Google. If you read the original post I stated such.
As you can see, it is Google not samsung:
I have already provided that to you. On the find my mobile web page it does not show my phone, it shows my mobile number and says the watch can not be found. Something is up.
I still can not get the find my mobile application to show up on my device. This is very frustrating. Does Verizon force me to use the Google app "Find my device" it is useless without remote control option. I want find "find my mobile"!
Verizon is notorious for this kind of stuff. They lock out some really good features; call & message continuity, Samsung cloud, find my mobile.
I literally traded in my Verizon S10+ and purchased an unlocked model so I could have full use of all these features.
When I click on the find my mobile in the settings menu, i very clearly have a remote access option. Is this what you're looking for? Send a screen shot of what your screen looks like when you click the find my mobile option on the settings menu
This is what I see when I click on the Find my Mobile. Does your Verizon branded s10+ show the same options?
