Is there a way to track a stolen iPod touch?


iPod touch (3rd generation), iOS 4.3.3

    If you had already tured on the FindMyiPod feature and wifi is on and connected then go to iclould .com. sign in and click on FindMyiPhone

    Otherwise you will have to look for it the old fashioned way.

    Apple sill not help

    Reporting a lost or stolen Apple product

    Ckange the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report it to the police.

    Well, yes and no.

     

     

    Find My Phone sorta kinda works, but its main short coming is positional accuracy.  Comparing my 4th gen iPod and my iPhone 4, FMP has been as much as 1/4 of a mile different.  This is with both devices sitting next to each other.  In fact, they were in physical contact with each other.....

     

    Not what I would call stellar performance, and almost if not entirely worth less for any real world tracking exercise.

     

    You only real options are to file a police report and then file a claim against either your home owner's or automobile insurance.... 

     

    But the bottom line is, your iPod is long gone....

    This is asked and answered many times every day.  The forum search bar is on the right side of this page.

     

     

    You cannot.  UNLESS you set up find my ipod BEFORE it was stolen AND it is on AND it is connected to wi-fi AND it has not been restored by the thief.  THEN you may be able to track it to an approximate street address using icloud/find my ipod.

     

    Otherwise there is no way at all to track it.

     

    Report it to the police and change your passwords.

    What does reporting it to the police do?

  • lllaass Level 10 Level 10

    If the police somehow recover the iPod then the police know who to contact.

    Hi (From UK)

    My son had his Ipod touch stolen on Friday night. I have changed the password and am tracing on icloud but no show yet. When you say they track it, who does? Is this done via itunes? Any help would be greatly appreciated as my son is gutted.

     

    Cheers

    Going to icloud.com or using the FindMyiPhone app on another device is the only way to possibly track it. Apple will do nothing.

    just go to icloud.com

     

    sign in

     

    click on find my iphone

     

    it will track it if its connected to internet

    I have checked icloud with no joy!  I have even sent messages and cleared date, just in case. As each ipod has a unique serial number can it be tracked by itunes? I assume the thief may try and create a new itunes account, surely apple/itunes would have my account details recorded against that device and therefore should be able to notify?
