It used to be possible to find the IMEI number of a device from Google Dashboard. However, I couldn't find it now. Majority of the answers I find on the internet refers me to this method but it doesn't work.

Is it possible to find the IMEI number of a lost Android phone using Google Dashboard? If yes, then how?

    Probably the easiest way is to look at the box the phone came in, or the receipt, as it'll be printed on both. That relies on you having kept either, though.

  • Where did you buy the phone from? You can contact them. IMEI numbers are usually written on the receipts and the seller is supposed to keep a copy or digital records of the receipt.

    If you cannot get it from your carrier, and you don't have the box or receipt with the IMEI number on it, you are basically out of luck. A few years ago Google made some changes and you cannot see the IMEI of the device connected to your account, unless you purchased it through the Play Store. I would make this an answer but I cannot find the reference link.

    Did you contact your carrier and see if they have it?

Yes, as of July 2019, you can still get your IMEI number from the dashboard. Just go to the "Find your device" page and select your device. Then in the upper left corner, the name of your device will appear with an (i) icon next to it. Click on that and it tells you IMEI number.

Not a way to find it , but to document that it's not possible from Google Dashboard anymore

Is it possible to find the IMEI number of a lost Android phone using Google Dashboard?

Unfortunately NO

Google removed this feature for reasons best known to them. From Google Support, see what NoGoodDeed says

As catzrule states, Google has was removed IMEI information from the new dashboard view.

Google is considering where and if it might be appropriate to re-surface that info. You can leave Feedback about this with Gmail.

This is the latest official source (October last year) I could find, so there is no way out unless you have the box or bill mentioning IMEI.

Other possibilities

  • If you synced to itunes as claimed here ( I can't confirm)

  • Another very long shot is if you had installed a paid app that is single device use and is linked to your IMEI number (I have a call recorder app that does this and everytime I change my device , need to mail them with new IMEI number, so end up having a record)

  • As Bochur mentioned in comments (thanks), asking Telco is another possibility

I wish Google would reintroduce this

Edit Things that didn't help

  • Chatting with Google help from Play Store options - they were totally clueless and couldn't direct me to somebody who can help

  • Downloading data from Google Dashboard. Combed but to no avail. Only interesting thing is that you can see your Google ID here

    This is just not true. See the other answers.
