    Lost Mode locks your missing device with a 4-digit passcode and can display a contact phone number right on the lock screen. And while in Lost Mode, your device will keep track of where it has been and display its recent location history when you check in with the Find My iPhone app.

    After you select that, you can send a custom messages to your phone so someone who may have found it can contact you and return it to you.

    Cool. I didn't know you could set a 4-digit passcode lock remotely. So it lets you program that from the Find My iPhone screen on your computer?

    Yes you can set a lock code remotely and it will stay on until you remove it.
