Anyone who has lost a cell phone will tell you…it stinks. What’s worse is that most cell phone insurance services charge you a huge deductible. So what’s the point?

Using FOUNDio is like having free phone loss insurance. You create a Tag ID for free at using your email address and then tag your phone using a printed label or even masking tape. If you lose your phone and a good Samaritan finds it, chances are that they will use THEIR phone to notify you by visiting and enter your Tag ID. They can even give you instructions on how/where to get your phone back…all without giving up their personal information.

Even though FOUNDio is like free phone loss insurance, it is only an additional layer of protection for those times when you simply misplace your phone. Online recovery services like FindMe, etc., only work if the phone has power and is turned on. What’s more, if you lose your phone and it is on “silent” it may be hard to find it yourself.

Do yourself a favor this year; sign up your whole family and tag all their phones with FOUNDio. It’s like free phone loss insurance.
