Mac, Ios, and find my iPhone

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hello Everyone I was wondering how many of you have been successful at using find my iphone. I jsut used my macs browser to sign into www.icloud.com/find and signed using my id and pw. I wasnt able to even remotely find out how to locate my phone as the map was totally enaccessable. have any of you found a way to successfully use this?
there doesn't seem to be any way to use it at all and remotely lock or erace your phone.
thanks for any help in advance.

Click, "Show devices using find my iPhone." Navigate using VO right arrow to the device you're trying to trace. Press VO spacebar, and then navigate using VO right arrow to hear the options, spoken as standard buttons.

I got my phone in July. Tried to add my contacts using icloud. My contacts tell me it is totally inaccessible. I had to do it by hand. One of my family wanted me to get it so they can track where I am, but I don't know if I need to download anything, or what. I have no idea how it works. I am using a Windows PC when using icloud.com by the way. Not accessible at all with either Internet Explorer or Firefox. I was able to sign in, and select a button I wanted, but that was it.

From what I have heard, Apple is one of the best. I have one of the older ipod models and it worked well for me for an i/device. Firefox on the PC nor IE in Windows yielded much excpet a successful sign in.
