When I realized I lost my phone, I had no idea where it could be. I checked my email and someone had already contacted me to say they’d found it. LinkTag saved me so much time, money, and grief! —Danielle, Seattle, WA
My keys slipped out of my pocket in a taxi and I didn’t notice. The next passenger found them, messaged me through my LinkTag keychain, and I had them back in my pocket 15 minutes later. —Kevin, New York, NY
One day my cat disappeared and was nowhere to be found. Thanks to the LinkTag on his collar, someone who found him on the other side of town could message me right away, and he was home safe and sound that night. —Monica, Providence, RI

I already use Find My iPhone / Android, Tile, etc. Why should I use LinkTag?
Services like Find My iPhone don’t give someone who finds your lost device a way to contact you. So you’re left hoping they find another way to reach you. And of course, these services only work while your device is charged up and online. LinkTag still works when your device’s battery dies, it’s in the subway with no signal, etc.
With Tile, someone who finds your lost item first has to download the Tile app, create an account, and then sign in, so that their phone reports your Tile as found at their location. Then the finder is supposed to take your item to a police station and leave it there. So much hassle, many put it off, if they do it at all!
LinkTag and Tile are actually complementary. Tile is more helpful when you lose something that you’re still within Bluetooth range of and can still find yourself, whereas LinkTag helps more when you’ve left something farther away and someone else finds it.
By giving you and the finder an easy way to instantly message one another, you can immediately start coordinating returning the item, without wasting critical time wondering what to do, leaving it up to the police, or wherever else the finder leaves the item.
What do I get for free?
Every new LinkTag user gets to create up to 10 DIY LinkTags and can send up to 100 messages for free. Received messages are unlimited.
That’s enough to protect your phone, keys, laptop, and headphones, and recover them from someone who found them over 5 times each, and still have plenty of credit left over.
If you ever need more credit, or if DIY ain’t your thing, LinkTag products and credits are always available at our Shop.
Can I use the same LinkTag link for different things?
We recommend you use a different LinkTag for each item you want to tag. This makes it easier for someone who finds your link to understand what it’s for. For example, if Dan uses the same link for his phone, keys, laptop, and headphones, then someone who goes to the link on his keys would see something like “You found Dan’s LinkTag for: phone, keys, laptop, or headphones”, which could be a little confusing.
Is LinkTag only good for lost-and-found?
LinkTag is great for lost-and-found, but it also works anywhere else you’d like to be instantly reachable without leaving your phone number or email. Putting up fliers or signs, leaving a note with a message or a question? Anywhere you’d like to create a digital-physical interaction point, LinkTag is useful. People come up with interesting new ways to use LinkTag all the time!
Some of the stickers say “Reward if returned.” I’m not sure I want to offer a reward.
We offer free LinkTag stickers and credit to finders returning lost items!
Just let us know when you’ve recovered your item and we’ll take it from there. You can always offer your own reward too, but even if you don’t, LinkTag will make sure the finder is rewarded for doing the right thing.
I have another question that doesn’t appear here.
Sorry about that! Please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll get right back to you!
