First of all, you need to understand that the term Hack iCloud account might sound legitimate, but this is something that cannot be done. To remove the iCloud Lock from an iPhone with a hack is something that many tools claim to do, but none of them can actually provide.
I am using the expression “hack” because since iCloud Lock was created it meant that an iPhone cannot be used anymore since it required the owner to enter the Apple ID and password!
The iCloud Activation Lock is a security “upgrade” that Apple added to its iOS. It was introduced to Apple community with the release of iOS 7. If someone lost his/her iPhone, he will be able remotely to control it. This means that not only he/she will be able to Lock it, but also to locate it.
- So what’s the situation for people who happen to forget their own Apple ID and password and want to disable iCloud without password?
- Can you bypass the Activation Lock Screen on iPhones?
- Do you need to crack or hack into the iPhone iCloud system and change the DNS settings?
Hack iCloud: What it means?
In general, hacking tools allow you to do various actions that a manufacturer does not want you to do (iOS Jailbreaking is considered a hack).
When it comes to hacking iCloud Activation Lock, it means that a software will try to figure out what the password of an iCloud account is, so you can access it and deactivate it.
Hacking tools, use Brute force attacks, which means that they have a very large database of common passwords, and try them one by one. This means that you need to know the Apple ID of that iPhone, which most of the times is not visible.
Do iCloud Hacks work?
There are over a dozen ”hack iCloud tools” you can find, but you need to be extra careful. They do not work and this is something that I can guarantee it!
From the moment the Find My iPhone and iCloud Lock was introduced by Apple, many tools emerged that claim to Hack
iCloud Password. Many methods and exploits were used by hackers, and some of them were successful (If you remember the scandal with the Celebrities leaked photos!).
If you think it logically, Apple would never allow an online tool or software to hack and bypass their iCloud Lock security. Even if a tool could do that, Apple would have patched that bug almost instantly.
So, Apple has patched the majority of them, but exploits and bugs will always be available for hackers to use. And Apple will continue patching them!
Also, Apple has extra security features to block brute force attacks and this is why there are so many iOS updates every now and then.
iCloud Hacking is a major SCAM
There are many sites out there that promote their new tool that Hacks iCloud Account & Disables Apple ID.
They claim that:
- It is a software or a service that will miraculously break the connection from that iPhone with the owner’s iCloud ID
- This is a legal service and it does not require “hacking“
- This service can be applied to all kinds of iPhones and both CLEAN and BLACKLISTED
For example, last week I found 2 HACK iCloud Activators and Google ranks them in the very first places.
I tested both of them and without any surprise, none of them was functional. But check this out:
- The 1st one is a Free tool that uses Brute Force (Apple has patched it 1.000.000 years ago) and of course, it won’t disable Apple ID Lock. On top of that, the free software contains Malware and Adware.
- The 2nd one is a ”Hack iCloud Activator 2018” which costs only $12. Pay them and your money is gone without any chance of iCloud Unlocking.
Is there a way to “hack iCloud account”?
The answer is yes! But, there is a big BUT!
The easiest and quickest way for removing and disabling the Apple ID lock from your iPhone without iCloud Hacks is:
- Hack iCloud legally through the original owner
- Contact Apple support
- Bypass iCloud Activation Lock Screen
In order to successfully deactivate the iCloud Lock of your iPhone, the iCloud Status should be CLEAN (Not lost/stolen/erased).
This means that an iCloud IMEI Status Check is mandatory.
Now, there are more into this, which I ‘ll explain below.
1. Hack iCloud legally through the original owner
An iCloud locked iPhone is 99% stolen or lost. Contacting the original owner is not only the right thing to do but when you are honest, the chances of removing iCloud ID are maximized. Based on our experience, the original owner will gladly deactivate Find My iPhone because you were both scammed by the same person after all: The iPhone thief.
When you know the original owner’s contact information
When an iPhone is iCloud locked, the first moment you will turn it on you will get stuck in iCloud Activation Lock Screen. It will ask you for the iPhone’s Apple ID and Password.
Sometimes it can even contain a message from the original owner with contact information.
If a message like this exists then you are lucky because:
”Only Apple and the original owner can disable the iCloud Lock/Find My iPhone”
If you know how to contact the Previous Owner of your iCloud Locked iPhone, then Disabling the Apple ID (Find My iPhone) and removing the iCloud Activation Lock is pretty easy.
Provide the following steps to the Previous Owner to Deactivate and Disable the Apple ID Lock (Steps provided by Apple):
- Sign in to iCloud.com with their Apple ID.
- Go to Find My iPhone.
- Click All Devices at the top of the screen.
- Select the device that you want to remove from iCloud.
- If necessary, click Erase [device].
- Click Remove from Account.
After the previous owner removes the device from their account, turn off the device and then turn it back on to begin the setup process.
What happens if you don’t know how to Contact the Previous Owner?
So what you really need is not a Hack iCloud Password tool but you need a service that can get you the original owner’s contact information. You need to:
- Find her contact information
- Get in touch with her
- Explain the situation
- and finally, ask her to unlock the iCloud Activation Lock
And that is number one of the two ways to remove the iCloud Lock.
How can I find the iCloud Locked iPhone’s original owner?
When the iCloud Activation Lock Screen is empty then you need an Apple ID Finder Service. This service can access Apple’s iCloud Databases and finds the original owner’s contact info.
There is no other way to find out this kind of personal data because:
- Apple doesn’t share this kind of info
- Offline and online stores can never know the true whereabouts of a used iPhone
- The person who sold you the iCloud Locked iPhone is most probably a thief or a scammer
Apple ID Finder Tool Requirements
In order to use an Apple ID finder, you will need the iCloud locked iPhone’s
- IMEI number

- UDID number

- Select your iPhone from Sources column (DEVICES – At the left sidebar of iTunes)
- Click on the Device Serial Number and it will change to UDID

Unfortunately, after recent testing, we found out that this service works ONLY for USA iPhones at the moment

Before proceeding with an iCloud Lock Hack
In order to remove the iCloud Lock Legally from an iPhone, it is crucial to know that if an iPhone is iCloud Locked and it is reported as Lost/Stolen/Erased, the previous methods will have a lower success rate.
iCloud IMEI Status Check
An iCloud Status IMEI Check report will provide you accurate and up to date information about the Find My iPhone and iCloud status of your iPhone.
There is not another service that can access Apple’s GSX databases and retrieve all available iCloud related information.
Υou only need an iPhone’s IMEI number to get a full report with the iCloud and Find My iPhone status of your iPhone (ask the seller to provide you a video with the IMEI number of that iDevice, with at least 2 methods).
Samples of iCloud Status IMEI Check results.
iCloud IMEI Check is vital especially before you purchase a second-hand iPhone on eBay or Craigslist or other online shops. Try using it next time you will go for a refurbished iPhone and you won’t need iCloud Lock Removal ever again.
Conclusion on Hack iCloud Tools
It is very important to understand that online iCloud Hacking Tools were never able to unlock iCloud Activation Lock and they never will.
Their sole purpose of existence is to steal your money either by paying for useless services or through compromising your personal data with Adware and Malware.
