Find My iPhone:

If you misplace your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, the Find My iPhone app will let you use any iOS device to find it and protect your data. Simply install this free app, open it, and sign in with the Apple ID you use for iCloud. Find My iPhone will help you locate your missing device on a map, remotely lock it, play a sound, display a message, or erase all the data on it.

For missing iOS devices, Find My iPhone also includes Lost Mode. Lost Mode locks your device with a passcode and can display a custom message and contact phone number right on the Lock Screen. While in Lost Mode, your device can keep track of where it has been and report back so you can view its recent location history, right from the Find My iPhone app.

Please note that Find My iPhone must be enabled in iCloud settings on your device before you can locate it with this app.


• Locate your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac on a map 

• Play a sound for two minutes at full volume (even if your device is set to silent)

• Remotely lock your device with a passcode

• Display a custom message on the Lock Screen

• View recent location history of your device while in Lost Mode (iOS devices)

• Get driving directions to device location

• Remotely erase all content and settings on your device

• Battery charge indicator

New for iOS 9:

• View your current location and the location of your missing device on the same map.

• Cancel a pending erase request if your missing device is offline.

How Your Data is Used
When you use Find My iPhone, your device’s location and information about your device and your account will be sent to and retained by Apple. This enables Apple to provide you with this service. Your device location is only sent to Apple if you actively request the location of a device or accessory. If you choose to enable the Send Last Location feature, your device’s last known location will be sent to Apple automatically whenever your device’s battery reaches a critically low level. Apple retains location information and makes it accessible to you for 24 hours. It is then deleted.

Outsmarted user ,


This program works exceptionally well. South African criminals unfortunately outsmarted me in such a simple but creative way. They sent SMS’s to my husband’s phone (which is the number I used in my locked phone message). In this SMS message they kept on reporting new positional information on the phone. Funnily when I locked into find my iphone, I could not see these positions and found it funny that find my iphone would send SMS’s at all. Finally I checked it out and made the fatal mistake to click through to a link that took me to the find my iphone landing page where you put in your apple id and password! I was fool enough to put my password in there and minutes later the criminals logged into my profile and removed the device. Find my iPhone perhaps you should warn idiots like me not to react to sms messages.

Core Apple app you have to have

It's a no brainer to have this app installed. I've personally not lost a phone yet (fortunately) but feel at ease knowing I can place the phone in Lost Mode or even remote erase if need be. At the end of the day, it's not really about the hardware but privacy. You don't want your data in the wrong hands.
