TrackR is the simplest way to find lost or misplaced items. Join the millions of people who are connected to their most important items.

How it works

  • Tired of losing your keys, wallet and phone? Attach the coin-sized TrackR bravo to any item and use the TrackR app to locate it in seconds. Ring your missing item or get a reminder to grab your item before leaving it behind.
  • Lost your phone? Press the button on your TrackR bravo to ring your missing phone – even on silent!
  • And if you're far away from your missing item, TrackR's Crowd Locate network will show you its last location on a map.

It's easy to track your things. Available for both iPhone and Android, the TrackR app is easy and fun to use. Track your important items, so you're always connected to the things you can't afford to lose.
