Lock it down. Automatically.

Activation Lock is designed to prevent anyone else from using or selling your device.* When you enable Find My on your device, Activation Lock is turned on automatically. Your Apple ID and password will then be required before anyone can erase your device or reactivate it.

You can even find devices that are offline.

If your missing device can’t connect to the internet, the Find My app can still help you track it down using the Find My network — hundreds of millions of iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices around the world. Nearby devices securely send the location of your missing device to iCloud, then you can see where it is in the Find My app. It’s all anonymous and encrypted to protect everyone’s privacy.

Find your friends.

Invite friends and family members to share their locations. So you can keep in touch with one another, coordinate around an event, or know when a family member has arrived home safely.

See where everyone is on a map.

When you share your location with friends, it’s easier for you to find each other and stay connected. Share your location for an hour, a day, or indefinitely as you see fit.

Get notifications when they’ve left or arrived.

You can set up notifications for when friends and family leave or arrive at a place. They’ll be notified when you set it up, so no one’s privacy is compromised. You can also receive alerts and notifications when your child has arrived at or departed from school.

Just like every Apple product, Find My is designed to put you in control of your data. Apple receives location information only when you actively locate your device, mark it as lost, or enable Send Last Location. Location data is encrypted on Apple’s servers and kept for no more than 24 hours. And when the Find My network is used, everyone’s information is kept private — even from Apple.
