Setting Up and Using iPhone Lost Mode

As long as you have Find My iPhone activated on your iPhone, you can then use a computer and log on to the iCloud web site to trigger Lost Mode. This will lock your phone, and enable you to display a message and phone number on the screen. You'll also get location updates sent to you via email. You can turn off Lost Mode if you find your iPhone.

    When signing into a iCloud.com on any browser to put iPhone in Lost mode, isn’t 2 factor authentication required? With the iPhone lost that can be difficult. I had a personal experience like that recently.

    Ash: No, there is specific way to access Find My iPhone at iCloud.com when you have lost your phone. You can see that when it asks for your two-factor code, right at the bottom. There is a little “Need to find your device?” and a Find My iPhone button. You still need your ID and password, of course.

    Oh perfect! Thanks for clearing that up. I brought that up because someone had managed to hack into my iCloud and put my iPhone into lost mode. I managed to recover my iCloud but was able use 2 factor because the texts were coming through on my watch..if you know what I mean. Thanks for putting up these great videos!
