Find My Device App

The Find My app makes it easy to keep track of your Apple devices. Locate items you’ve attached AirTag to. And keep up with friends and family. It works on iPhone, iPad, and Mac — even if your missing devices are offline. And your privacy is protected every step of the way. You take your devices everywhere. Which means you might leave them anywhere. Whether they’re under a sofa pillow or in a conference room, chances are they won’t be lost for long. You can get help finding your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Mac, AirPods, or AirTag right in the Find My app. Is your iPad at home or back at the office? Use the map to get a full picture of where your devices are — and where a missing one might be. Some devices can also mark their location when the battery is critically low, to help you find them even if they run out of power.
When you can’t find something but think it’s nearby or around others who might hear it, you can play a sound to pinpoint its location.
Your AirPods play a specifically designed sound that can project across a room — and even farther.
If your device or AirTag goes missing, you can put it in Lost Mode.
That starts tracking its location, sends you a notification when it pings the network, and sets your passcode to protect your data.
You can also let people know how to reach you.
They can simply view your message on your device’s Lock Screen, or tap your AirTag with their smartphone to get your contact number.1.
Worried that your device has fallen into the wrong hands?
You may want to erase it remotely to delete your personal data and reset your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, or Mac.
If you retrieve it, you can restore your data from your iCloud backup.
Activation Lock is designed to prevent anyone else from using or selling your device.1 When you enable Find My on your device, Activation Lock is turned on automatically.
Your Apple ID and password will then be required in order to erase or reactivate your device.
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.
