How to prevent iPhone theft?

The ubiquity of mobile phones, unfortunately, has not stopped attempts to steal them. We are talking, first of all, about expensive models like the iPhone, which can be sold after theft. For those who want to insure against "raids" of intruders, experts offer a simple way to protect.

To begin with, you need to clearly understand what a thief who takes possession of a smartphone will do. It will most likely turn on airplane mode, after which Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile data will be turned off. This is to make it harder to track a stolen device using the Find My app. The task of the user is to prevent the thief from doing this.

To do this, you need to prevent the opening of Control Center on a locked iPhone:

● Go to "Settings";

● Go to "Face ID and passcode" (Face ID & Passcode);

● Enter password;

● Find the "Allow Access When Locked" section;

● Disable Control Center.

After that, all attempts by the thief to enter the Control Center will fail, and the user will be able to track the location of his gadget using the Find My application. It is possible that after that the thief will simply want to throw away the smartphone, but thanks to the same “Locator” (Find My), it can still be found.
