Remotely disable Apple Pay on a lost or stolen iPhoneLost your iPhone? Don't fret. CNET's Dan Graziano shows you how to disable Apple Pay and erase all of your old data.
[MUSIC] Apple Pay is one of the coolest features on the iPhone 6. It has also been touted as one of the most secure payment methods out there. I mean, between it's [UNKNOWN] model and the requirement for your fingerprint before payment can be processed. It's easy to see why. But what happens if you were to lose your iPhone? Granted, it's unlikely any would-be thief would have access to a perfect copy of your fingerprint. But it's still a good idea to disable Apple Pay if this was to happen to you. To do this, log into your account on iCloud.com and select Find My iPhone from the list of options. You can also use the Find My iPhone App on another iOS device that is also associated with your iPod account. Next select the device you've lost to begin tracking it and then activate lost mode. This will work even if your iPhone is turned off. I also highly recommend that you enter a phone number and a lost screen message to aid in the return of your device. Once you have enabled lost mode any apple pay information is immediately disabled until you reclaim your device. Other options in the find my device section include active in a loud sound that will play to help you locate your iPhone. And the ability to remove all the data stored on your device. If your iPhone turned off both of these actions will take place when it's powered on. For more how tos like this be sure to check out howto.cnet.com.
