Find My iPhone is a security system automatically enabled on all Apple devices. It prevents unauthorised people resetting or activating your phone without permission. It cannot be removed or switched off without your account password.
Before ordering any iOS unlocking services, we require Find My iPhone to be switched off. This is due to Apples unlocking restrictions. This is for two reasons:
- It prevents unauthorised people requesting an unlock for your device. This acts as a safeguard against thiefs as they will not be able to use another network sim in your device without having your Apple iD password.
- You will need it anyway. If your device somehow does get unlocking with FMI switched on, it will immediatly ask for it when you switch network sim cards. If you do not know the Apple iD password when it asks, you may have wasted your money on an unlock for a device you will not be able to use properly.
If you don’t know your Apple iD password, reset it first from the Apple Website and set it to something you will remember.
REMEMBER – FONE UNLOCKER AND APPLE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR APPLE ID PASSWORD. KEEP THIS INFORMATION PRIVATE! DO NOT SHARE YOUR APPLE ID PASSWORD WITH ANYONE YOU DO NOT KNOW PERSONALLY, EVEN THEN – MAKE SURE THEIR REASON IS GENUINE.
How do I switch it off?
- Go to Settings.
- Ensure you are connected to a stable internet connection.
- Tap your name at the top of the page.
- Tap on the “Find My” section, it will have a little green and blue radar icon.
- Tap on the “Find My iPhone” section at the top of the page.
- Switch off Find My iPhone and type in your Apple iD password when asked.
Once your unlock has been completed, you can enable FMI again to activate the security benifits that it offers.
