Going on the premise that you do not have to make a unique account, your ID being actually the phone number, you do not need to define a password and give your email address or other information that we are increasingly reluctant to provide.

Besides the tracking function, Find My iPhone allows you to block a particular terminal and delete all of its content remotely.
