All You Need to Know

One of the most frequently asked questions about APPLE devices is the iCloud lock. How can we bypass the iCloud protection? How to disable iCloud lock? In this article we will try to answer this question and give you some useful tips.

Find My iPhone

Find My iPhoneFind My iPhone is the protection feature that help you find your lost device like an iPhone or iPad. FIM allows you to remotely play the sound on the device, block the display on the screen, or completely erase all data. What’s really important this features also work with Macs. In order to access the service, you should visit and log in by using the AppleID which you are using on your APPLE device. You can also use a dedicated iOS app that we can launch on another device.

The function itself unfortunately has two significant drawbacks. First of all, obviously - we will not be able to do anything if the lost device will not have access to the Internet or will be disabled. Second - the person who finds our phone may turn off the Find my iPhone service in the settings so that we will lose the ability to connect. However, we can easily handle with the second mentioned issue.

Make your data safe

  • The first method is pretty simple. All we have to do is use the screen lock protection  (Settings -> Passcode -> Turn Passcode On). This means that in order to unlock the screen and access the content of the phone we will have to enter the security code. The option is very useful, because thanks to it, no one accidentally gets easy access to personal data on our phone.
  • The second way allows us to block access only to selected settings and apps in our APPLE device. Whenever someone wants to get into and modify them, the system will ask for a password. If you would like to use this method go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions -> Enable restrictions. Afterwards you need to input the restriction passcode. Then scroll down and select Location Services and choose Don’t Allow Changes. For now on disabling Find my iPhone features will not be possible without a restriction passcode.

iCloud removal is possible!

Before you take action to find the way to bypass the iCloud protection you can do a few things that will help you get rid of the iCloud activation lock. We have anticipated  some scenarios in which it is necessary to bypass the protection:

Forgotten iCloud ID / password.

If we want to get rid of the lock we need to go to the Apple website. Here we can ask for re-login data, that can be send to our e-mail account.

Used device.

If we bought the locked device we should immediately ask the seller to disable this lock. If the device is locked and the seller does not contact you, there is a simple answer. Either the device is stolen or lost, so we ought to find a way for the seller to return the product and pay back the
money for it.

If you are planning to buy a used device, we need to find out if my iPhone is off. If someone is trying to sell the device for ridiculously low price, there is a pretty good chance that the phone is blocked. As a result, we will not be able to use the device.

Lost and found.

If we find a device with a lock, we should immediately return it to the police station. As a result, they will be able to contact Apple to determine the legitimate owner.
