You can protect your mobile devices from loss or theft by enabling the “Find My Device” or similar tracking features available on most smartphones and tablets. These tools allow you to locate your device’s last known location, lock it remotely or even erase its data if necessitated. To activate this feature on iPhone, go to:
- Tap on your name at the top of the screen.
- Click “Find My.”
- Switch “Find My iPhone” to on.
In the same settings section, you can also opt to share your location with family and friends.
