A bug found in the current version of iOS 7 allows users to disable Find my iPhone without typing in a password, hiding the device from being located on iCloud.com. Deactivating Find My iPhone can be done in just a few steps on any device running iOS 7.0.4 and involves making a few simple changes to the iCloud account menu in Settings.app.

The bypass only works on a device that does not have Touch ID or a Passcode enabled, as the exploit requires access to the Settings menu. To avoid having Find My iPhone disabled, users should update their phones with a Passcode and install iOS 7.1 when Apple releases the software.
