The Bottom Line: If you want to locate your friends that also have an iPhone 3Gs or better, this app is for you. Apple says: Find My Friends enables you to locate iOS devices only when they are on and connected to a registered Wi-Fi network or have an active data plan. Translation: You need a new Apple device to use this service, so go and buy a new one if you still have one of our early devices. We found that Find my Friends delivered really good accuracy of about 10-15 meters during our tests with full 3G coverage and a fairly good Wi-Fi access. With Find My Friends you can hide your position; however you can’t tone down the accuracy and show a less accurate location. This app works in other countries even if you have Data roaming turned off but have access to WiFi. Big minus is that it does NOT work on other phones than iPhones; you can’t track any other brands. Elegant and simple design as always, however the design varies a lot from Apple’s other apps such as the Find My iPhone and iBooks.
By default, Find My Friends will prepopulate a list of possible contacts it thinks you’ll want to share your location with. Recent versions of the app also take advantage of AirDrop to let you quickly share locations with people who are in your immediate vicinity. Once someone shares with you, or you share with someone else, you can open the app to check their location on a giant map.
You can sign into Find My Friends from multiple iOS devices, and choose which one is the primary device for sharing your location.
The geofencing feature can be handy for figuring out when one of your contacts leaves or arrives at home, work, school, or some other address. The saga started in the school office, where my daughter works for one period every other day. Problem: The last location put the iPhone 4S a good block-and-a-half away outside a police station. Thursday, I texted the mom and demanded, politely, she confront her daughter by explaining we had tracked the phone to the apartment and was it possible she accidentally had picked up the 4S.
I called the mom and told her someone had turned on the phone and we had tracked it back to her building.
During Apple’s preview of iOS 7 at WWDC, security features were emphasized to protect lost and stolen iPhones. If you are able to remotely erase your iPhone via Find my iPhone, your Apple ID will be required to activate the phone again. Apple notes even after a remote restore, your iPhone will continue to display a message and your phone number on the lock screen. When I first heard about this new security feature, I thought about that DFU mode workaround.
I can confirm that placing an iPhone in DFU mode and restoring an iOS 7 device does not work. That’s good news, i remember when my 3gs was stolen at the time, i did a remote wipe and could no longer locate the iphone because the found my iphone credentials was been deleted from the remote wipe, so the thief had a free iphone there’s nothing i could to get it back! Wait so if you want to restore your own phone, do you have to deactivate find my phone, or just type in your password?
If you restore, Find my iPhone is default to OFF until you sign in with your Apple ID, or restore to previous settings.

Furthermore, if you have the iPod touch and you lose it, you can’t really activate activation lock without wifi. Therefore, when I am on the passlock screen and unable to activate the lost mode, the thief could dfu it. What would happen if you use an older version of iTunes offline to restore any iphone 4 and try to DFU + Restore it? However, it annoys me that the maps automatically shifts to “Compass mode” which makes the map swing around as you hold the phone. If you turn off the “Enable 3G” and the “Cellular Data” you can’t connect to Find my friends. Apple has chosen to not answer how accurate their service is, by searching for a while in their Apple community we got this answer “It can be as accurate as 10 meters”.
According to an article at the Apple Insider in March 2012 Apple is currently working on improving the privacy with variable location precision. Works with the phones notifications, the person invited gets a notification directly in the phone and can accept directly. You only have to ask “where is my brother” and you will get a position of him directly on the phone (if you have a brother that is). Apple has probably chosen leather and stitching to make it look friendlier and warmer contrary to the clean and stiff design as their normally use. This setting can be changed at any time if you’re switching devices or moving between home and work, for example. She often has out her phone and feels comfortable leaving it at the table where she busies; the teens working there are all fairly honest. Unfortunately, the Find my iPhone doesn't give street addresses, and the building was off an alley. I thought to bring my XOOM LTE, since it has cellular data, to locate the stolen iPhone 4S. My daughter walked up and asked if she knew of any high school students living in the building.
Find my iPhone, long known as the saviour for misplaced phones, could be easily turned off in iOS 6, making it effortless for thieves to cease tracking of devices. Now, in order to turn off Find my iPhone, an Apple ID password is required to toggle the feature off.
Also, attempting to delete an iCloud account within Settings also prompts for an Apple ID password. I’ve tried slowly many times and checked it very careful to eliminate any human error. If these devices will automatically connect it to wifi hotspots, why would a would be thief carry the device around; to help me find my iPod? Apple should make devices unrestorable without entering your password, with sending a password reset option to your email as backup. Then you have to click on the “plus” sign in the bottom right corner and choose to turn it off.
Otherwise, you can fill in their email address at the top of the screen to send an invitation.
The phone was a lost cause if not for Apple's cloud recovery service, which worked in an unexpected way overnight. On this particular day, she stepped out for five minutes and returned to find the phone gone.

I suspected that the girl saw us talking to her mom from the apartment window and had turned off the phone. Someone turned on the iPhone 4S at 12:40 am today, and the lock code triggered and in process located the phone.
Since i had this info there were no issues, but a stolen iPhone would still not be able to activate through iTunes and thus would be a brick. I’ve tried it, but it still prompt to ask for Apple ID password, then still said that wrong password again!
And since you need to go to settings to connect to a network, wouldn’t it render your iPod useless??!! So I thought that that was no big deal, I put it in DFU mode and connected to iTunes, but when I try to restore it says that I have to turn off find my iphone. Sitting where she had been: Another teen applying to attend the school, with her mom close by. So I grabbed my laptop -- the lovely Lenovo ThinkPad T420s -- thinking to tap a hotspot later on. So I called my wife and had her log into my daughter's account and send a signal to the iPhone 4S.
There was a recent family tragedy I'll keep private that in context made the tears believable to the mother and why I didn't go to the police.
But it hung out there in Apple's cloud, not just locking the phone (which wasn't necessary) when turned on but locating it, too. So I log on to iCloud on my mac and remove the phone from my devices list and try again, but guess what! As it turned out, this wasn't a neighborhood with Starbucks or other coffee shops, and the "checks cashed" stores on every other corner didn't have WiFi.
We explained the situation to her, but she didn't want to confront the daughter then and there.
So I asked my daughter to send a lock code to the phone, which would succeed if the handset was on. You have to do it in the settings on the device, so if I want to fix the device then it has to work. We drove several miles away to a Starbucks, where I finally logged onto MobileMe, confirmed the smartphone's location and took a screenshot so we could locate the building.
When bicycles were stolen from our locked garage, the police wouldn't come out at all but took a report over the phone.
My daughter rightly worried that if we cancelled the SIM, her iPhone 4S would be lost for good.
My daughter took a screenshot of the location and filled out a police report she got from school.
So, at my request, my wife sent a message that we had tracked the phone, were in the parking lot and wanted the 4S returned. We would go to that nearby police station, file a report and ask the cops to come a block and a half to the apartment.
