    Did anybody get an email today saying like this:

    Dear MobileMe member,

    your iPhone 4 was located at June 7, 2011 on 6:47 AM.

    You can view this device's location for the next 24 hours with the Find My iPhone app or at me.com/find.

    Now this is weird because my iPhone is not lost and I did not login to my mobileme account to use the find my iphone feature. Why did I get this automated email? Aren't you suppose to get this email only when you login to your mobileme account and use the my find my iphone email? Is my mobileme account compromised? :eek::confused::eek:

    I didn't get that but I do know the find my iPhone app was updated yesterday to send emails when your phone comes back online after querying for it and it was 'offline'. Not sure if that is what happened to you?

    Are you sure the message was from Apple and not from someone fishing for information about people?

    This is part of the "Find my iPhone" update.

    Looks like a phishing message to me.

    What's New in Version 1.2
    • When you are unable to locate a device because it is is offline, you will receive an email if the device comes online and is located.
    • Ability to remove an offline device from the list using the app.

    You can Relax.

    I don't use "Find My Phone" so I don't particularly care. As long as you don't click any links in the e-mail and instead go to the proper website manually, you should be fine.
