There’s a new Locator app in iOS 13 to find family members and friends. In addition, you can also use it to share your location and find your devices.
Here’s how to use all the features of the Locator app in iOS 13.
How can I be tracked using my iPhone?
On the iCloud site.com
It is very simple. On your iPhone, there is a Locator section in the Settings app that has Find iPhone. This is the option that allows people who have access to your Apple ID to get location data.
Besides, there is one more condition. Geolocation must be enabled on the device (Settings → Privacy → Geolocation Services).
If both conditions are met, it’s not too difficult to see the user’s location information, it requires:
Access the iCloud website from any computer, smartphone or tablet.com.
In the bottom right corner, select the Hybrid option, in case, if in your area Apple maps are not yet drawn in detail.
All! The green circle on the map is you, or rather your iPhone.
over, the person who gave you the phone with the Apple ID account specially created for you, if he wants, can easily turn your iPhone into a “brick” (he can remotely erase all the data from the smartphone and lock it).
To do this, just click on the green circle, then on the “i” and in the window that appears select the option Erase iPhone.
Such a smartphone can only be recovered by the intruder himself. Here’s a real-life example of this story.
