Find My iPhone review
Losing a smartphone is a horrifying experience for most of us. This small thing contains your personal and contact information, priceless or even secret photos and videos, and important financial data. A real treasure trove for thieves.
But never say die. There is an app which will help you in such a stressful situation. Find My iPhone allows you to find the lost device in a short period and take all the necessary measures. You’ll remotely track your missing, stolen, or misplaced device — be it an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac.
If you don’t know where to start, check out the review to learn more about the Find My iPhone app.
e="font-weight: 400;">The app allows you to take advantage of any iOS device to find your lost one and keep the information safe. To make it real, download and install Find My iPhone for free, launch it, and sign in via Apple ID you use for iCloud.
Find My iPhone helps you find the lost or stolen device on a map. Plus, it can:
- remotely lock the device with a passcode;
- play a sound for a couple of minutes at a loud volume even when your device is set to silent mode;
- display a message you’ve left on the Lock Screen;
- provide you the driving directions to device location;
- remove the information like settings and content from the device in the worst case.
You can also cancel a pending erase request if the lost phone or tablet isn’t online.
The app’s design is pretty nice and comprehensive. You’ll see your device on a map and, as the Family Sharing became available in the latest version, you’ll be able to check other linked devices, too. There is nothing odd about the user interface. It looks accomplished and polished.
With the Find My iPhone app, you’ll be able to use the Lost Mode. It locks your smartphone or tablet with a passcode, displays a message and a contact number you need on the Lock Screen.
Being in a state of Lost Mode, your device keeps track of the recent location and reports this data back. That’s why you may check its location history from the Find My iPhone app.
Find My iPhone has to be enabled in iCloud settings on your device before you start locating it using this app. Also, note that you’ll need a stable Wi-Fi or cellular Internet connection to use Find My iPhone. You have to connect a Wi-Fi-only device to the Internet via a registered Wi-Fi network to locate it.
