    Change your iTunes (Apple ID) password along with any other password that was stored in the iPod.  If any passwords are associated with credit cards, contact the CC company and get your card replaced (with a new number).  If any passwords are associated with a bank or any other savings institution, contact them also and discuss approprate action with them.

     

    The "Find my..." function is pretty much useless if the device is in the hands of a thief.  All that is necessary is for the thief to connect to any computer with iTunes and "Restore as new."

     

    The only real protection you have is with the personal information on the device rather than the physical device itself.  This requires action before the device is lost/stolen.  If the device has significant personal information, it should have a strong 8-digit (or longer) password AND be configured for automatic wipe in the event of ten consecutive incorrect password entries.

    It depends if the ipod is connected to wi-fi,

    if it is then it would be possible to locate it if he didnt

    reset the device already.

    As philly said you can change every password that was related to your device

    then you can at least save your accounts.

    Of course you can, if you have access to internet all you have to do is go on icloud.com, login and go on Find My Iphone. it should work. you can disable it if you think a stranger has it, you can make it make a sound if you think it is nearby or you can erase your ipod if there is personal information on there. hope this works and helps you!

    and yes you can locate it on Find My Iphone if your location settings is on or off.

    The iPod will show up in FIndMyiPhone if Location Service is off but FIndMyiPhone will not show its location.
