How To Find Lost Keys

The way you’ll conduct your search for lost keys depends on whether you lost them:

  1. In the house
  2. Outside the house

How To Find Lost Keys in the House

If you think you lost your keys somewhere inside your home, start your search by checking the places where keys can get misplaced easily, such as:

  • The living room area—You should look underneath your couch, tables, chairs, and other spots around your living room
  • The kitchen—Check the kitchen drawers, on top of the fridge, and similar
  • Small spaces—Be sure to check the shelves where you place a lot of small items or any drawers around the house

How To Find Lost Keys Outside the House

If you think you lost your keys outside your house, you should do the following:

  • Check your car—There’s a chance you forgot your keys in the car, so you should check between the seats, under the floor mats, inside the glove compartment, and around the stick
  • Retrace your steps—Try to remember the places you visited since you last saw your keys and then either visit or contact them. You should also inquire with the lost and found departments of those places since most locations have them (check our guides on MTA, Metro Transit, NJ Transit, or Carnival Cruise Line lost and found, for example). Keep in mind that it can be time-consuming to go to all the places you visited or to wait on hold to reach customer support agents to help you find your keys
  • Contact the authorities—Although the police won’t go on a search for your lost keys, you should go to the local station and ask them whether someone had found the keys and turned them in. You should also leave your contact information so the police can reach you in case your item is found in the future

Our AI-powered app is not only time-efficient but also easy to use and will do all the work for you in no time.
