Associate iCloud with iphone

I would like to know   how to associate iCloud with iphone.

I have seen in some videos where people can login to iCloud and can locate their iphone or ipad on the map  and initiate a remote wipe if they need to.

In order to link your iphone to iCloud you need to go to settings, select icloud and log in with your appl ID.  That's it.
In order to track it, you need to install the app "Find iphone" and follow the set-up instrunctions. (basically you need to allow the app to share your location and link it to your apple ID"
With these 2 done, you are able to track your Ihpone via (and sent messages to it or wipe it)
