    So what happened is, I misplaced my phone in my office. So, went to my colleague's phone and signed in on Find My Device. From there, I was able to locate my phone. Then, my colleague accidently deleted my account entirely. So I had to undelete it. But now, I am unable to find my phone in the Find My Device page. I went to MyAccount, there I was able to see my phone as the Current device. So, how do I get my phone workint on the Find My Device service.

    Welcome to Android Central! What account did your colleague delete? Your entire Google account?

    Yes. My Entire Google Account was deleted. But I followed the steps to undelete it.

    Hmm, I'm going to skip over how your colleague deleted your account by accident -- I hope he or she felt very very bad about that.

    On the phone, go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators​. Is Find My Device checked on there?

    I am actually using Samsung S8 on Nougat 7.0.1. I can't find Device Administrators. I checked some other settings like Settings>Security>Location, but I couldn't find FindMyDevice App. Other apps like Google Maps and Snapchat are there though.

    Sorry, the setting should be here: Phone Administration - Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ User Guide
