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)

1) Make sure your device is running the latest version of iOS.
If you’re setting up a new iOS device, or to update to the latest version of iOS, go to the settings menu, tap General, and tap Software Update to see if there’s an update available.

2) Turn on iCloud.
When you turn on a new iOS device or after you’ve completed the update to the latest version of iOS, follow the instructions in the setup assistant to activate your device and set up iCloud.1

If you skipped the setup process, tap the Settings icon on the Home screen, select iCloud, then enter your Apple ID.

3) Customize your settings.
Tap the Settings icon and select iCloud. Tap the On/Off switches to enable individual iCloud services. To enable iCloud Backup, tap Storage & Backup and turn on iCloud Backup.
