Friend lost iPhone yesterday on highway. Tried to log into iCloud on my laptop to use Find My/erase phone for her. But logging into her iCloud asked for 2 factor authentication and she didn't have phone (obvi) or her laptop with her. So I could not get verification notification. Am told there is some way to set up secondary recovery # or email in Find My for these instances & you could set that to a spouse's # or email. But I don't see that option in Find My. What would be your suggestion?
Liz: You have ways to access Find My iPhone without that code in these situations. Call Apple Support and they can help.
