BlackBerry Protect includes features that can help you find your BlackBerry 10 device as well as protect your device’s data if your suspect that your device has been lost or stolen.

For example, I couldn’t find my device yesterday so to find it, all I had to do was login to the BlackBerry Protect website located at http://protect.blackberry.com using my BlackBerry ID credentials and I was able to view my device’s location on a map.

After driving over to my friend’s house I still couldn’t find my device, so I logged into BlackBerry Protect website again and was able to make my device play a loud sound for a minute at which point I found it between the couch cushions. This is a great example of why I love BlackBerry Protect because it saved me time and money!

    I can’t find my bb using BB Protect because BB Maps aren’t available on Peru (South America). Instead, I use Snap Secure and it’s very useful.
