On iPhone and Android, how to conduct a Reverse Image Search

Apple has added a built-in password authenticator with autofill to iOS 15, which will replace Google Authenticator and Authy

However, on a smartphone—whether iOS or Android—it can be a fair bit more confusing, if you don’t know exactly where the function is. There are many instances when that knowledge may come in handy for you to do some on-the-spot detective work.

If you’ve ever wondered how on Earth you can perform a reverse image search on your smartphone, you’ve come to the right place. Of course, it’s very easy to do so on a computer: You simply drag the image, whether from your system or from the web, into the Google Images search bar—and voilà!

Maybe your friend posted a suspicious vacation photo that looks too good to be true, and you want to check if it was stolen—or you just can’t remember the name of the landmark in that photo you took in Europe last year, and you want to look it up.

Whatever the reason, it isn’t as daunting as you may think. While there are ways to perform this action through nearly every big third-party browser, this tutorial will be focused on Google reverse image searching in particular.

You need the Google Chrome app

For starters, you should have that installed on your device, no matter whether it’s iOS or Android. You should make sure it’s updated (which you can see how to do by going here for Android phones, and here for iOS devices).

How to do a Reverse Image Search on Android

A) Reverse Image Search from web images (Android)

1. First, you need to open the Google or Chrome app—either will work. 2. Search for and find the picture you want to “reverse image search.” (You’d likely be already here if you need this tutorial.)

3. Tap and hold down on the picture until a prompt appears with several actions to choose from. 4. Choose Search with Google Lens.

This will bring up a selection of results selected by Google Lens you can scroll through. If you want the more traditional Image Search experience, you can scroll all the way down the results and click on the prompt: Didn’t find what you were looking for? Retry with Google Images. B) Reverse Image Search from your saved image library (Android)

1. Open the Google (not Chrome) app. 2. Go to the bottom and tap Discover, the first category in the row.

3. Tap the Google Lens symbol in the Search bar (it’s a camera symbol next to the mic symbol!) 4. This will take you to the Google Lens camera, where you can either search with a new photo or upload an existing one. If you upload an existing one, you have the option to crop the image to the part you want to focus your search on.
