Viet - Mac Tech :

Hi, I will assist,

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry about the issue. Do you have the 4-digit passcode/number set on your iPad?

Viet - Mac Tech :

If you do, then you do not have to worry because the thief cannot get into your iPad since he/she does not know the passcode; the thief would have to reformat/reset the iPad to original factory settings in order to use it; everything will be wiped out from the iPad.

Viet - Mac Tech :

But to be safe and to block your Apple ID account from the thief, please change your Apple ID account password at the website https://appleid.apple.com/

Viet - Mac Tech :

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you,

Viet - Mac Tech :

(NOTE: It looks like the apple ID website https://appleid.apple.com/ is down right now, so please try again later. Thank you.)

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

dear Sir,

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

the reason i didnt reply to your request for rating is because i still didnt manage to block my i pad.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Hi, It's been about a week.

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

Dear Sir,

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry, did you try my suggestion yet?

Viet - Mac Tech :

Did you see my reply/answer previously?

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

dear sir

Viet - Mac Tech :

yes, please scroll up/down this web page in order to see all my replies.

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

the reason i didnt rate your answer yet, is because i didnt manage to block my stolen i-pad. i tried many times through the web site: www.appleid.com to change my apple id,but although it tells me that e-mail will be send to me with instructions to change my apple password, unfortunately i didnt receive anything yet on my e-mail. can you please help me for that?????????

Viet - Mac Tech :

I'm sorry about that. Have you checked your email junk/spam folder yet?

JACUSTOMER-aiwqebqm- :

yes i didnt but nothing received. my e mail address is: [email protected]

Viet - Mac Tech :

Sorry, for privacy purpose, please do not provide your full email address; please provide only the part after the character @, such as @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, etc.

Viet - Mac Tech :

Are you able to sign in your Apple ID account at the website https://appleid.apple.com/?

Viet - Mac Tech :

Are you still there? Do you have a computer? Can we do a screen sharing session, so I can help you directly? Thank you,

Viet - Mac Tech :

By the way, you change your apple password, not your apple ID.

Viet - Mac Tech :

It looks like you've gone away; please reply back when you are available to continue. Thank you,

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
