My friend recently told me that I could track my lost Chromebook through the 'Find your phone' section of my Google account. But I'm not seeing it there. But it is showing other devices. Is this not possible for a Chromebook?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
This feature needs to be enabled prior to using it. If you lose it before turning the feature on you are out of luck. Sorry .

    It is a good feature of Chromebook that it has the ability to be tracked either by using Android based phone/tablet or laptop. But keep in mind that, the lost Chromebook needs to be turned for tracking. If someone turns it off then it can’t be tracked anymore. Also it requires to be connected to Wi-Fi.
