Find lost items in seconds with Tile

Tile, the small Bluetooth tracker with companion smartphone app, can help locate your everyday things in seconds. And it’s now available online and in Verizon stores for $69.99 for a pack of four.

Attach, stick, or tie the small Bluetooth tracker to anything, and open the app (Android and iOS) to locate your misplaced things. Connect it to a key ring, wallet, remote control, backpack zipper, even a Gear VR. Tile is also the perfect travel companion to keep you and your luggage from being separated.

Ring your Tile, if you’re within the 100-foot Bluetooth range, and it will play a loud sound until you find it. Or check the map for its last known location and time. Reverse roles and use Tile to ring your phone, even if it’s in silent mode.

Lost something and out of Bluetooth range? Use the anonymous Tile community to help expand your search. A notification with location gets sent to you as soon as a fellow Tile user comes within range of your misplaced item.

Visit the nearest Verizon store to pick one up and stop playing hide-and-seek with your stuff.
