Track Lost iPhone with iOS 7

For all iPhone users, there is an interesting feature in the latest iOS 7 with regards with tracking your phone. Part of the upgrade in the iOS 7 is that a password will always be required if you want to turn off the Find My iPhone in your device. What does this mean? Well this means if your iPhone got lost, the thief would not be able to turn off the Find My iPhone unless he or she knows your password.



And if the thief thinks he is clever and would want to erase your device to avoid being tracked, well the latest update in the iOS 7 also requires a password before he or she would be able to erase the device. The people in Apple call this feature the Activation Lock. So, whenever you got your iPhone lost, you will be guaranteed that you will be able to track your phone whenever it is being activated. The first step if you find your iPhone missing is to go to icloud.com/find. You can also use the Find my iPhone app from your friend’s iPhone or your iPad. You can then set your lost iPhone in Lost Mode and this will automatically set the device on a 4-digit passcode and also it will display a custom message with your phone showing on the device. As long as the device is set as Lost Mode, you will be able to track the location through the Find my Iphone app or using the iCloud. Once you get it tracked, please report it to your local police station. Do not attempt to retrieve it by your own as it may endanger your life.
