Misplacing your iPhone can cause panic. Moreover, if it gets stolen, you may be worrying not only about your iPhone but also the information therein that could fall in the wrong hands. However, thanks to the technological advancements, you can now easily track an iPhone.

How to track an iPhone

There are various approaches to tracking iPhone, each with its advantages. For most iPhone users, Find My iPhone would be the first stop. The best thing about using Find My iPhone service is that you can do much more than remotely tracking your iPhone. If it is stolen and you are afraid some vital information may get to the wrong hands; the method allows you to wipe your phone riding your private information.

Find My iPhone method

Turning on the Find My iPhone feature is easy. Moreover, even where you do not have another phone to locate the missing iPhone, you can use the web. Where you are using another iPhone or iPad to locate the missing one, go to Find My iPhone app, log in to the iCloud and tap on the name of the iPhone you wish to track.

If you are using the web approach, on your PC, log in to your iCloud account and click Find iPhone on the menu. From there you can see a list of your devices at the top, click on the iPhone you want to locate. The location will appear on the map where you can zoom in and out for a better view of its location. You can also choose from the modes listed what you would want to do including:

  • Play a sound where you are near to know precisely where it is
  • The lost mode where you will input a phone number that will appear on your lost iPhone so that whoever finds it can contact you
  • For extreme measures, select erase mode where you get to delete all the personal information on your lost iPhone.

Family Tracker

Cellular companies offer add-on features including the family tracking plans. If your phone is among the listed device on your subscription plan, you can use the cellular company to track your iPhone. Cellular family tracking is one of the easiest ways to protect your investment as you can conveniently locate your missing iPhone or that of your family member listed on the plan. What is more; you can track every family phone especially when you want to know where they are if you are worried.

Spy apps

While installing a spy app like SMS tracker may be prompted by reasons such as tracking your child, spouse, or employees phones, it also comes in handy when you misplace your iPhone. Spy apps are discrete, and if your iPhone was stolen, you could retrieve it since whoever posses it is likely to miss the app giving you an opportunity to track it easily. Moreover, as the app allows you to get call logs and messages, you can intercept the communication and seek help from the police to retrieve your iPhone.

With the continued advancements, tracking your misplaced iPhone gets easier and convenient by the day. You do not have to hassle to locate your missing phone, and even better, you can protect your vital data by remotely erasing it if your iPhone is stolen
