Can I remove icloud off my phone and is it really needed if i use my computer to backup?

Found 20th Nov 2017
Hello, I back up my iPhone using my computer and wondering if its worth removing icloud. Can I still stop people using the phone if its lost without it and is it worth having?

Its the only way you can make sure nobody can use your phone with a restore if they find it.
You can turn iCloud Drive off and still remain signed into your Apple ID, however I’d recommend you keep iCloud on as you can’t have your Find My IPhone on without it. Not only that but if you ever lose your phone your contacts are normally synced with with your Apple ID which is always handy!

like yourself, I physically back up my phone to my Mac and don’t use the iCloud. I do however, sync my contacts, notes and keychain
Thanks for your advice guys :-) I was just sick of backup failed coming on all the time so I have followed your advice and stopped syncing my photos as its over 5gb and im not paying for more cloud storage :-D
