I can't locate my iPod and I know it is being used and has Wi-Fi but when I try to locate it's saying incorrect ID or password. Can a thief change or erase your Apple ID and password? The thief picture has now replaced mine when I look on my girlfriend's iPod.

How do you know it's being used, and what version of iOS were you running? – Rob Feb 16 '14 at 11:10
Thieves can only change it if they know your Apple ID and password. So far, there aren't any known exploits being used against iCloud Activation. – Andrew Larsson Feb 25 '14 at 0:01

You need to call Apple. Like now.
