How to stop thieves from turning off tracking apps on iPhones 

The hack is specifically for iPhone users and will stop thieves from being able to turn off tracking apps such as 'Find My iPhone'.

All you have to do is go to the Face Id and Passcode section on your settings where you can disallow access to your pull-down notifications. 

That means that a thief won't be able to turn on the Airplane Mode and stop you from losing access to the phone.
