“Where is?” Can find a lot more.

All location data remains private.

Like every Apple product, the “Where is?” App was designed so that you have control over your data. Location data is only sent to Apple when you actively search for your device, report it as lost or switch on "Send last location". The data is encrypted on Apple's servers and stored for a maximum of 24 hours. And when the “Where is?” Network is used, everyone's data remains private. Apple does not find out either.
