What to do if you find a lost iPhone

Published

on

As one of our amazing iPhoneHacks readers, you know that finding a misplaced iPhone is an opportunity to do a fellow Apple fan a good turn. Today, we’re going to look at how you can return a lost iPhone as quickly and easily as possible.

Is it locked?

Returning an iPhone might end up being more complicated than you think — particularly if the phone is locked with a passcode or Touch ID. If this is the case, you have two options: try identifying the owner with the help of Siri, or just keep the phone close at hand in case the owner realizes the phone is lost and calls it.

Identifying the owner

Finding out who the lost phone belongs to is the first, and perhaps the hardest part of this process.
If it’s an iPhone 4S or newer, hold down the Home button to invoke Siri and then say, “What’s my name?” If this works, you should be able to get the owner’s name and other details, which you can use to look up the owner or mention when you call contacts on the phone.
What to do if you find a lost iPhone
Use iCloud’s Find My iPhone feature to locate your phone on a map
You can then make the phone play a sound to help you find it, turn on Lost Mode to display a message, or even wipe your data off the device.
That’s a wrap! Hopefully, with our tips you’ll be able to keep from losing your own precious iPhone and help others get theirs back too, if you find one.

Mapping Drives with Group Policy Preferences and Item-Level Targeting

Published

on

1 Users security Group and OU min
In this blog article, I’ll show you step by step instructions on how to map network group policy preferences and item-level targeting.

Mapping a drive means that you want permanent access to a shared folder created on another computer. Windows OS will assign a drive letter to the network drive and it can be accessed just like any other local drive connected to your computer.

Mapping network drives with group policy preference is very easy and it does not require any scripting knowledge. Also, We can use item-level targeting to map drives based on specific conditions like group membership, OU, operating system, etc.

In this example,  We will use item-level targeting so it only maps the network drive for users who are a member of the specific security group.

For this guide already I have created.
Two users with the name HR User1 and HR User2
One security group name HRUsers. (HR User1 is a member of this security group)

no network drive min

It works perfectly fine for us.
Now, any user we put in the HRUsers security group will get this mapped drive.
