How can you track a stolen iPod?

Answer

Oh no! Some jerk ran off with your precious iPod and all of your favorite songs. If you're certain your device was stolen, first contact your local law enforcement agency. Let's start with the bad news. Unfortunately Apple does not have a process to track or flag a stolen iPod, but you can use My Support Profile to find a list of serial numbers that have been purchased or registered with your Apple ID.

  • To access your profile, go to My Support Profile via https://supportprofile.apple.com/MySupportProfile.do and sign in with your Apple ID.
  • View your purchases in 'My Products' to access your serial number. Having the serial number is especially helpful, if said jerk tries to sell your iPod.
  • If you have an iPod Touch and you've already set up the Find My iPhone service, you're in luck. You can use Find My iPhone to locate your missing device, display a message on its screen, play a sound at full volume, remotely lock it, or remotely erase it.

There isn't an accurate way to accurately track the location of your iPod Touch without having specific location-tracking applications previously installed on your device. If your iPod Touch does not already have a location-tracking application, you will not be able to track its exact location. But don't fret. There are still some things you can do to find your iPod.

Check Craigslist, eBay, and other seller sites regularly. Post your device's serial number at Stolen911.com and perhaps someone will notify you. Also, check any websites that track the location of recent logins. If your Gmail or Facebook accounts are accessed from the stolen device, the IP address will be logged. The IP addresses may be linked to general vicinities, so you can focus your search in that area. Good luck!
