iCloud: Activation Lock

With Activation Lock, your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can:

  • Turn off Find My iPhone on your device

  • Sign out of iCloud on your device

  • Erase and reactivate your device

Important: Make sure to remember your Apple ID and password, and that your password is unique and secure—someone else shouldn’t be able to guess it. For more information, see the Apple Support article Security and your Apple ID.
