Apple with the release of the new seventh version of the operating system for its smartphones has decided to dramatically improve the security system.
Thus, all phone users are obligated to register their personal identifier in the iCloud system.
If the device is lost, the user can easily track his location, because all the data on the location of the phone is reflected in the user’s personal account on the iCloud website.
Very often, users of the system forget the data to enter their page.
Mail is a universal way to restore access to your profile. To recover the password from your account using the email address that was specified during registration, follow the instructions:
Sending an email with a link to change the password to the specified mail
- After you enter the mail address, the system will automatically determine whether there is a registered Apple ID with such mail in the database. If there is, a letter will be sent to the indicated mail;
- Go to your inbox and open the letter. If it is not in the inbox, look at the Spam directory. Perhaps it got there;
- Follow the link indicated in the letter and you will be taken to the page for entering a new password. Enter a new access code to your profile and click OK;
- Now you can enter a new password on your iPhone and access it again.
This process of password recovery by mail will take a maximum of 5 minutes, so it is the most efficient and safe.
Service for recovering login details
Apple has created a special service to restore access to the personal pages of its users.
It is suitable for those users who do not remember the email address specified during the registration process.
In this case, you need to go to the official user support page and leave your request for restoration there.
Interface of the official user support page
In a letter to the operator, describe as much as possible the whole situation and provide at least some data for recovery: your phone number, answer to the security question and other information.
Within a few days, the operator will contact you to clarify the details.
You may be asked to prove that it is you who own the phone.
To do this, you need to send a photo of the spread of your passport and your photo along with the box from the phone, so that the serial number of the device is visible on the image.
Other ways to restore access
Complete reset of phone settings. By returning the smartphone to the factory settings, you can remove its binding to the user’s personal identifier in the system.
However, after a reboot, you will receive a phone in which there will be no user data.
All of them will be deleted during the recovery process.
To reset your phone, follow the instructions:
- Go to the phone menu, and then to the settings panel;
Enabling phone settings through the menu
- Now go to the main settings tab and click on the “Reset” field;
Reset your phone
- Resetting and returning to factory settings may take several minutes. In some cases, the smartphone may reboot several times.
To completely remove user identification in the proposed menu, select the option "Erase content and all user settings of the device."
Can I enter the phone without an icloud password?
You can, in this case, the restoration will be carried out using your account in iTunes.
