My wife's iPhone was stolen, and because our iCloud is connected via Family Sharing, I immediately put it on stolen mode and then erase mode to remove all the data once it came online.
I checked several hours later, and it showed that the iPhone had been erased, and currently, the iPhone is still under her iCloud.
My questions are:
- Is it secure to keep it linked to her iCloud account? (Is there any risk of the iPhone being linked to her/my account again, and our information being accessed?)
- Is it safer to remove it from my iCloud? (Will this allow the thief to reuse the iPhone?)
- She has never backed-up her pictures with iCloud. Can she retrieve any of them?
