    Default Find my iPhone vulnerability
    Actually with the new iOS 7 everytime we have to turn off find my iphone it ask for a password which is good because nobody can turn it off unless you are the owner. But it don't make sense to have that option to stop somebody to turn it off when somebody can easily go to locations and turn off the location service for find my iPhone and make it useless even when it still on. Apple should add in the next iOS update a password requirement everytime somebody want to turn off the location services for one app or all globaly. That's in case you don't have a password to unlock your iPhone, iPad or iPod, which most of us don't use.

    There is where the problem exists on iOS 7, you have to upgrade to 7.0.1
