NIST warned that if an attacker exploits the zero-day vulnerability in Samsung's a€?Find My Mobilea€™ service, then the hacker can remotely lock, unlock and ring the phone. DisclaimerThis website is not owned by, is not licensed by nor is a subsidiary of Apple Inc. Losing one’s phone is a common nightmare scenario, and no matter how careful you are, something can always go wrong.
I am paranoid about keeping track of my devices, and with writing about tech, I carry around a lot of devices. The first thing to do is go into the Settings app, then into your iCloud settings and simply flip the switch for Find My Phone.
To track and command your iPhone from a desktop or laptop, you need to have the iCloud suite installed. Before we continue, you may have even misplaced your iPhone in the same building, or even in your own home! One of the great risks of losing your phone is not so much losing the device itself but letting the information stored on it fall into the wrong hands. Note that once the phone is erased, you will no longer be able to send any commands to it because your iCloud account will be removed along with all of the other data on the phone.

If you are at the point where you have to write off the phone, you should also contact your network provider and have them cancel the SIM card in the iPhone too. Thankfully, iOS 7 comes with new security features such as Activation Lock, which should make it even more fool proof. Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites. Do you think Apple should launch this service or we already have enough places to post status updates? If you cannot locate the phone at this point, there’s little you can do but wait until it reconnects to the Internet. This is useful if you are in a different area to where the phone is, and you want to make the phone grab someone’s attention to pick it up.

Fortunately, I was given my phone back after running back into the pub, some honest patrons had handed it into an honest land lord. In the latter case, the iCloud control panel should have been added along with a recent iTunes update.

The iPhone will display its lock screen with a pop-up box displaying a message asking whoever is reading to call the number you provided.
When you click this, a confirmation screen will appear whether you seriously want to do this. All articles, images, logos and trademarks in this site are property of their respective owners.
Had things not worked out that way, I’d have needed to use iCloud to find where my phone had gotten to.
You’re probably thinking you could simply call your phone without resorting to iCloud. Anyone attempting to use the phone will be challenged for the code you sent via the Find My iPhone service. Fortunately, the iCloud Play Sound command overrides the silent setting on your iPhone, so it’s worth going through this measure.
