There was even a case of a UK man tracking down and killing the person who stole his son's iPhone. He claimed he lashed out in self defence after being stabbed by the mugger, pleaded guilty to culpable homicide, and was jailed for six years. However, you might be able to use the information provided by Find My iPhone to help the police with their enquiries. There is a section below that explains how to do this. The simplest method to find an iPhone, if you've got a paired Apple Watch or an HomePod, is to tell those devices to ping the iPhone for you.
On your Apple Watch, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the Control Centre. On the lefthand side you'll see an icon of an iPhone with curved lines emanating from it: this is the ping button. Tap it. At this point the iPhone which is paired with this Apple Watch, assuming it's reachable, will 'ding' so you can hear where it is.
Keep pinging the phone until you find it. You'll be able to use the same feature on a HomePod as long as you have installed the software update released on 17 September Find My iPhone is a free service provided by Apple. Assuming you've already set up Find My iPhone, your iPhone will be able to broadcast its location to you.
Whether you've left your iPhone in the back of a cab, think you might have left it in the office, or, worst-case scenario, it's been lifted from your pocket, you should be able to use Find My iPhone to track it down, as long as you set up Find My in the first place. Chances are you will have set it up when you first started using your iPhone so it's worth checking whether you can use the service. We have a guide to setting up Find My iPhone at the end of the article.
If you don't have an iOS device handy to search for your iPhone using the Find My app, but you do have a friend with an iPhone, here's what to do:. Pre iOS 13 you could just log out of their account and log in to your account using their iPhone, in which case, you can follow the steps in the previous section.
The same goes if you are attempting to track a lost iPhone using a Mac or PC. You can log onto iCloud and access the Find My service there. Luckily, most people won't venture into their Find My Friends app, and even if they do, they'd have to actively look at who they're sharing their location with. Either of the methods above will remove the Find My Friends app temporarily, but restarting the device will bring the app back on the home screen.
While I don't condone tracking someone's location without their consent, I believe that it's important to be aware of how built-in features can be manipulated to take advantage of others. Yes, there's a "share location" in Google's map.
Just turn it on if you get alone time with their phone. If they don't have a Google account, create one. They don't send out emails. If you share it directly to your phone, they can find out though.
If you just be patient and look at their "activity" later when you have alone time with their phone again, it shows a path of where they've been. If you want to keep it then photo it with your own phone, then delete it off of theirs so if they look, it'll be blank. You can even hear any voice recordings they have shared with someone else. Patience is a virtue.
Plus, you can deny you know it was on. After all, it's not like you're working AT Google!
This will work with ANY phones that have Google regardless if they're the same brand or type of phone or even computer. I cant find my hisband after he left the house after a fight. If you don't see him in Find Friends, then you'll have to wait until next to set it up on his iPad. If he doesn't have it set up, he doesn't have it set up. If you know his iCloud information, you can always use Find My iPhone to track it, but only if he has it activated on his end. So I know how to track someone's whereabouts, but how do I keep someone from tracking mine?
I was told by Apple; if this person is tracking you using the Find iPhone app, all you need to do is change your password, so I did.
belgacar.com/components/enlever/surveiller-un-windows-phone.php I went from the numerical 4 digit to the alphanumerical 9 digit; but I'm still skeptical. Any thoughts? Not your lock screen password?
This article was more about using the Find Friends app, not the Find iPhone app. Changing your lock screen password should have no effect on both of those apps. If you aren't sure whether or not you've enabled location history, visit the link below.
If you haven't, it will give you an option to enable it, which is a good idea in case you lose the phone in the future. View the discussion thread. Skip to main content.
