    You can click the last option, "Erase Phone".
    This will erase all of the data on the iPhone, and it will not allow you to track the phone anymore. A pop-up box appears that reads "All your content and settings will be erased. An erased iPhone cannot be located or tracked". Erasing the phone is a last resort if you want to protect sensitive information on the phone and do not have a good chance of getting the iPhone back.
