4.4 Ensure 'Find My iPhone/iPad' is set to 'Enabled' on end-user owned devices


This recommendation pertains to remote device locating, locking, and erasure by the end-user.


The ability to locate, lock, and erase a device remotely helps recover from lost or stolen device incidents. This is only recommended for end-user owned devices. Institutionally owned devices should not be erasable by end-users.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


From the device:
1. Tap 'Settings'.
2. Tap '<_The Users Name_>' where Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store is displayed beneath.
3. Tap 'iCloud'.
4. Tap 'Find My iPhone'.
5. 'Enable Find My iPhone' and 'Send Last Location'.


Evidence may be destroyed if an end-user performs an erase.
