Have you ever lost your iPhone? Maybe you are one of those people who constantly puts things down and then forgets to pick them up again when you leave? This can lead to a lot worse than a lost phone…think of the data your device might contain! The Find My iPhone app is designed to help someone instantly locate their lost device on a map, and much more.

For example, if you lost your iPhone you could open the app in your iPod Touch, iPad, or other iPhone device. You can then sign in to your free account and retrieve a map showing the exact location on a very accurate map. You could also trigger the phone to make a distinctive sound or play a custom message – even if you left it in silent mode. The app will also allow you to lock the device in order to ensure that contacts and private data remain safe.

A remote pass code feature is in place as well, and allows locking even when it has never been done before. If the iPhone appears in an area where it could not have been left by the owner (meaning that it was probably stolen) the entire device can be wiped clean with a single tap of the key.

While there are many lost device apps, the Find My iPhone app is one that can host several different devices, and be used to locate other lost devices on the same network.

There is no cost for the download of the app, and it works in English, French, German and Japanese languages. The Find My iPhone app works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

If you are worried about the consequences of misplacing your various devices, this is an app to use to help protect them.
