iCloud makes it easy to sync a wide range of private information, including passwords. In contrast, if you lose or sell a device or if it's stolen, your information might be exposed in various ways. Accessing the hardware on your smartphone is protected by Apple by needing a passcode, password, or Touch ID/Face ID, and that's more than enough of a barrier most of the time, especially when you're trying to buy something from one of the company's many media and app shops.

Despite this, even if you cannot access the device, you may disconnect it from your iCloud account. Find I am the easiest place to start if your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or iPod touch is stolen or lost. You may lock it, lose the label, or even wipe your device with Find My. The device's position may also be tracked if it is linked to a network, which may help you locate a misplaced item or lead law authorities to a criminal.
