Tile Won’t Stop Ringing?

Your Tile tracker shouldn’t ring incessantly. There are a couple of ways to silence it:

  • Mute the Tile through the App: The Tile app allows you to adjust the ringer volume. Open the app, select the Tile you want to silence, and navigate to the “Volume” option within the settings. You can choose from Mute, Normal, or Loud.
  • Use the Tile Proximity Feature: If you just need to find the Tile’s location without the ringing sound, you can leverage the Tile app’s proximity feature. This works by displaying a signal strength meter as you move around, guiding you closer to the Tile without any noise.

Why Won’t My Tile Shut Up?

Tile Tracker Shut Up

There are a couple of reasons your Tile might be stuck in alarm mode:

  • Lost Connection: This is the most common culprit. If your phone and Tile are out of Bluetooth range, the Tile will ring continuously to help you locate it.
  • App Glitch: Sometimes, apps misbehave. The Tile app might be stuck thinking your Tile is lost, causing the non-stop ringing.
  • Tile malfunction: While less likely, it’s always a possibility. If the troubleshooting steps below don’t work, your Tile might need some extra attention from the manufacturer.

Silence the Symphony of Sorrow

Here’s how to silence your rogue Tile:

  • Bring the Party Together: Make sure your Bluetooth is on and that your phone is within range of the Tile. This should stop the ringing as the app reconnects.
  • App Intervention: Sometimes, a good app restart is all it takes. Close the Tile app completely (swipe it away on iPhone or force close it on Android) and then reopen it.
  • Double Tap the Rescue: If the app seems frozen, try double-tapping your phone’s home button and swiping up on the Tile app to force close it. Relaunch the app after a minute with Bluetooth on.
  • Silence the Source: If all else fails, you can try physically pressing the button on your Tile once (assuming it’s a model with a button). This should manually turn off the alarm.

If you can’t locate the Tile by sound but suspect it’s nearby, use the “Find My Tile” feature in the app. This will make your Tile ring even louder for a short period, hopefully helping you pinpoint its location.


1. Why is My Tile Ringing Non-Stop?

Ans: There could be a few reasons. It might be in “finding” mode because you misplaced it and used the app to locate it. Less likely causes include a low battery or a glitch with the Tile itself.

2. How Do I Silence My Tile with the App?

Ans: Open the Tile app and select the specific Tile ringing. Look for a “Volume” option within the settings. You should be able to choose Mute, Normal, or Loud ringer volume.

3. Can I Find My Tile Without the Ringing Sound?

Ans: Absolutely! The Tile app has a proximity feature. It displays a signal strength meter as you move around, getting stronger the closer you are to the Tile. This way, you can find it without the noise.

4. What if the App Doesn’t Stop the Ringing?

Ans: If the app isn’t working, some Tile models have a physical button you can press to mute them. Check your Tile’s manual for specific instructions.


If none of these solutions work, it might be time to contact Tile support. They can help diagnose the problem and determine if your Tile needs replacing.

By following these steps, you should be able to silence your overzealous Tile and get back to the peace and quiet (or your missing keys!). Remember, a little troubleshooting can go a long way in preventing a Tile tantrum.
