Privacy-Respecting Phone Tracking Apps

Is there any privacy friendly software that would help lock/find my phone if I lost it? I know this a security question and this is where Google is doing excellent. But people can hope for privacy :innocent:

The only one I know of is PhoneTrack, which requires a Nextcloud server:

Assuming you have a phone running Android.

Disclaimer: I have not used these applications. No idea if or how well they work.

I would assume locking your device requires root access, so if your phone isnโ€™t rooted I suspect youโ€™d have trouble finding applications able to do that.

If you have an iOS device these functions should be built in and Iโ€™d assume Apple will have access to the data whether you use the service or not, may as well use it.
