When a Tile tracker is paired with a phone, double tapping a button on the Tile will make the phone ring. This happens even if the phone is on silent mode. I’ve accidentally rung my iPhone at work multiple times, disturbing the people around me.

I want to leave the Tile paired to my phone so I can track my personal belongings, but I don’t want my phone to ring. Hiding my phone in the Tile app had no effect.

How can I disable the option to ring my phone from a Tile?

  • This feature is available on Android. Tested July 2019 on Android version 9.

  • @John Are the steps to disable Find Your Phone the same as iOS?

For iOS users, an option to disable "Find Your Phone" was added in Tile v2.28.1.

  • Open the Tile device list

  • Press ... on a tile and select Edit Tile Details

  • Under Actions, unselect the option for Find Your Phone

According to a comment by Geoff, this feature was also added to Android sometime prior to May 4, 2021
