      Hi Tamizh, I’m extremely sorry for the delay. I’m on a vacation.
      1. First login to Google device manager using the google id you used on your mobile.
      2. Choose the device you want to track.
      3.You will be given 3 options. Ring, Lock, Erase.
      4. Since it’s been stolen , First Click on the Erase option to clear any/all confidential data on it (if any).
      5. Then Click on “LOCK” , so that the device will be locked and the person can’t use your mobile.
      6. If you have installed “Device manager” App on your mobile / or Hoping location is enabled in your mobile, click on the location icon available next to your device name. it will track your mobile location with a 20-50 meters difference.

      NOTE: In case if you are able to track your mobile and going to the location, Don’t forget you are going to a theif. Don’t Go Alone. Prefer to Go at day time.

      All the best and Be Careful.

      Hi Ankush..
      we will start from the basic options.
      1.If you have the bill from the time of your purchase, The mobile IMEI will be mentioned on it.
      2. If you don’t have the bill, Then check the Mobile packing box. The IMEI will be mentioned on it.
      3. if both of the above options didn’t work , (Assuming it’s an android mobile ) and If you’ve logged into your google account from that mobile, then follow the procedure mentioned in the article.
      4. As of my knowledge, this is the last option. Go to the store where you bought your mobile. Tell them the date and other details regarding your purchase. They will have the IMEI number. Every shop will maintain record of the IMEIs of the mobiles they sold.

      I Hope this information is useful for you. Reply back if you need anymore help.
