Find My iPhone on iCloud.com helps you locate your Apple devices using information stored in iCloud. When Find My iPhone is activated, you can sign in to iCloud.com or launch the "Find My iPhone" app, and see the location of you missing device on a map. You can also play a sound to locate your devices or even wipe them remotely.


WHAT IS FIND MY iPHONE?


Find My iPhone allows a user to track their lost iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch. If you lose your iPhone, you can use the Find My app on another device to see its last known location.


In previous versions of iOS, Find My iPhone and Find My Friends were separate applications. Starting in iOS 13, they were combined into a single app that allows you to locate your devices and check the location of your friends and family. Find My iPhone has become a way to make iOS devices less attractive to steal. Once Find My is enabled on an iPad, iPhone, Mac, or Apple Watch, the device cannot be unlocked without the iCloud password of the original account.
