iCloud is a cloud storage service from Apple which allows users to store and sync their photos, videos, documents, and other files. You can access the files and folders available on iCloud from any Apple device or Windows PC and you can download that content from the iCloud drive anytime you want to.
Another very useful feature of iCloud besides safe storage is a feature called “Find my iPhone“. This is a feature which allows you to locate your Apple Device(iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac) that gets stolen or missing.
You can not only locate your missing device but you can also send an alert with a message to the device and if the situation becomes worse then you can also completely wipe data from your device so, that no one would be able to sneak into your data.
The best part about having Find My iPhone enabled is that when is turned on then no one will be able to access or even use your device without your iCloud password. So, it is highly recommended that you enable this feature to protect your device against potential threats.
How to turn on Find My iPhone for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch:
To turn on Find My iPhone for your iOS device, follow the steps below:
- Go to Settings > (Your Name) > iCloud.
- Scroll and look for Find my iPhone, tap on it.
- Tap on the Slider next to Find My iPhone to enable it if it is not already enabled.
- You can also tap on the switch next to “Send my Last Location” which will automatically send the last location of your iOS device when the battery is low.
When you will accidentally lose your device or it will get stolen then Find My iPhone will prevent anyone from accessing your device and it will also tell you about your device’s last location and you can also send an alert with a message.
