Ever bought a second hand iOS or iPadOS device that you can’t use because its activation lock is “stuck”? Ever have the activation lock appearing after restoring a backup to your iPhone or iPad, but you’ve forgotten your Apple ID password?Ever have your iOS or iPadOS device locked by malicious malware attacks or a virus? These problems can be easily fixed if users know the Apple ID and password.
However, if they don’t know them, it’s a bit more tricky. This is where StarzSoft KeyPass comes in handy. It allows you to remove the iCloud activation lock without an Apple ID or password.
What is the iCloud Activation Lock?
The iCloud Activation Lock is a part of Apple’s Factory Reset Protection (FRP). It works along with the Find My iPhone feature to help you to protect your iOS device against any unauthorized access. You can use it on your iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, and iPod touch. This security feature allows you to use your unique identifier and Apple ID on your device. Hence, no one will be able to use another Apple ID on the same device without first logging into the previous ID.
After turning on Find My iPhone on your device, the iCloud Activation Lock will be enabled immediately. This usually happens after installing a new iOS upgrade or resetting the device. As long as you remember the Apple ID and password associated with the iPhone, you can easily unlock it. After changing the users of an iPhone and resetting it, the new owner will likely come across this lock before unlocking the device to use its various functions.
