Hello Jean, how are you?

You need to contact the seller and ask them for the password ***** that's the only way to unlock it. The password ***** in there is set as a type of theft prevention system by Apple.

A lot of people who buy used iPads and iPhones run into the same problem.

If they cannot provide the password, I suggest returning it and getting it replaced.

Does that make sense?
