Add a device to the list

To add a device to the list, you'll need to sign in with your Apple ID. After you've signed in on a device with your Apple ID, that device will appear in the list. Here's where you need to sign in:

  • For iOS or iPadOS, sign in to iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, iTunes & App Stores or Game Center on the device. You can also see your paired Apple Watch.
  • For macOS or Windows 10 and later, sign in to iCloud on the device. 
  • For Apple TV HD and later, sign in to the iTunes and App Stores on the device.
  • For Apple TV (3rd generation) and earlier, sign in to the iTunes Store on the device.

Your AirPods will appear in the Find My app but they won't appear in your Apple ID device list. You can remove your AirPods from your account using Find My. Devices running iOS 7 or earlier or OS X Mavericks or earlier won't appear in your device list.


Remove a device from the list

If your device is missing, you can use Find My to find your device and take additional actions that can help you recover it and keep your data safe.

If you're not using your device anymore, or if you don't recognise a listed device, you should remove it from the list. 

If you've set up two-factor authentication for your Apple ID, removing a device will ensure that it can no longer display verification codes. It also won't have access to iCloud and other Apple services, including Find My, until you sign in again using two-factor authentication. The device won't reappear in the list unless you sign in again.

You can also remove a device from your account page permanently
