How To Add Your Contact Info To Your Lock Screen Wallpaper?

Planet earth is tech-driven right about now. It is so intense that our mobile phones are something we all can no longer do without. Some hours without your smartphone is a massive source of worry nowadays and misplacing it is a terrible idea.

Sadly, this kind of thing happens every single day, and you might be a victim at any time. It could be that you forgot it in the bus you boarded, in your office, at the salon, or maybe it fell out of your pocket as you rode home in that Uber. We make mistakes right? but something can be done to get it back.

A tracking application can be set on the device that will aid you to find it personally, but this can only be of help when it is powered on. How about if somebody else locates it before you do? How about making the person locate you with your info?
