Apple gadgets are known for their high-end security. Your Apple device can recognize the unauthorized access and your Apple ID disabled instantly. So, you can sleep without the worry that someone might steal your data or the sensitive information. But, at times, you may get to encounter glitches while accessing this Apple ID. This will make it difficult for the Apple user to keep a check on their phones all the time
So, the Apple ID is also capable of creating trouble. Most of us have locked ourselves out of their device at least once. Then begins the trauma of trying to login to the apple id again. Before understanding how to resolve the problems, let’s take a look at why it happens.
Why Your Apple ID Has Been Disabled?
There could be several reasons why your Apple id has been disabled.
- If you have entered incorrect information like user id and password too many times, your apple id could get blocked.
- If someone else has been trying to login to your Apple id and has entered incorrect information too many times.
- Whenever you or someone else have answered your security questions incorrectly.
- Your Apple id is hacked.
- It could get locked due to any activity Apple has marked suspicious.
Ways To Recover Your Apple ID
Regardless of the reason for your Apple id getting disabled, you can recover it easily. Apple Password Reset is the best option you can opt to come out of this situation. Mentioned below are the steps for Apple id password reset.
- Visit iforgot.apple.com
- Enter the Apple id
- Verify you are not a robot.
- You will land on the security page you have set up while creating your Apple account. Your next step will depend on that setup.
- For a two-factor authentication setup, you will receive a code either on your phone or on the trusted device you listed in your setting. Enter the code and you can unlock your account. Don’t forget to reset your password.
- In case of an older two-step verification, you would need the recovery key. This is a 14 digit code that Apple must have sent to you while you were setting up your account. Once you enter that, you can unlock your id and reset your password. However, if you don’t have that recovery key, you might really be stuck.
