If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is lost or stolen

If you lose your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or think it might have been stolen, use Find My and protect your data.

Look for your device on a map

To find your device, sign in to iCloud.com/find. Or use the Find My app on another Apple device that you own.

If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch doesn’t appear in the list of devices, Find My was not turned on. But you can still protect your account if Find My was not turned on.
 

Mark as Lost

When you mark your device as lost, you lock it remotely with a passcode, keeping your information secure. This also disables Apple Pay on the missing device. And you can display a custom message with your contact information on the missing device.
