Don’t panic, Apple has your back
Phones get lost, it happens. Luckily, tech giant Apple has a simple solution for finding your device. Find My iPhone helps you track down your smartphone quickly and simply.
Track your device in a flash
Find missing devices if they’re lost or stolen. This utility is essential and easy to use when you find yourself in a bind.
Find My iPhone is straightforward and doesn’t require much other than the initial set up and activation. If you have this on your device, you can remotely track its location on a map and send your number so someone can return it to you.
You can locate any iPhone as long as the app is activated and connected to the same iCloud account. To find it, just log into the program on an iOS device using the same Apple ID.
If you think that your device is in malicious hands, you can use this utility to remotely lock or completely wipe it’s contents. You can also remotely trigger a sound, even if the phone is on silent.
This program won’t be of any use if it’s disabled. While some people don’t like that it’s always tracking a device, there’s no point in having it if you’re going to turn it off.
Where can you run this program?
This app runs on devices with iOS 8.0 or later and iCloud.
