Getting started with your Tag

Updated by Marina

The best way of setting up your new Pebblebee Clip, Card, or Tag is by following our web setup guide. It allows us to check your device model and provide you with the best setup guide for you.

Our web setup guide can be accessed on your phone by scanning the QR code that comes attached to the product. You can use your phone's camera to scan the QR code.

Depending on your phone model, when you scan the QR code you might need to tap on the link that appears on the screen or take a picture for the QR code reader option to appear (e.g. Google Lens). If you are unable to scan the QR Code, write the URL on a web browser.

To ensure a smooth experience, please follow the below recommendations:

  • Plug your Pebblebee device to charge before start.
  • Turn the Bluetooth of your phone ON.

Your Pebblebee Tag can be used with the Pebblebee, Apple Find My or Google's Find My Device (for Android model). If you are not sure which app to choose, we have made an article explaining the different features each app has to offer. Check here for more: Which app should I choose?

Using the Pebblebee Tag on either the Find My app, Google's Find My Device app or the Pebblebee app is free of cost. You will not be required to enter any payment method, and we do not request a credit card to set up your new item. You can only be using one network at a time.
