This guide will walk you through how to use iCloud.com to locate your iPad, iPhone, Mac or even iPod touch.
In order to have this feature function properly each device that you are trying to locate must be linked up to iCloud with the same Apple ID account.
This setting is enabled on iOS devices under Settings –> General –> iCloud –> Find My iPhone.
Enable Find My iPhone
Open Chrome or your web browser of choice and navigate to www.icloud.com
When you arrive at icloud.com you will see a “Sign in to iCloud” pop-up.
Enter your AppleID and password.
**For most people this will be a different e-mail address than the danahall.org email.**
**If you cannot remember it and you also have an iPhone you can find the e-mail listed under Settings–> General –> iCloud **

Click on the “Find My iPhone” icon.
Even though it is called “Find My iPhone” it will allow you to locate any device that you have connected to your iCloud account.
