|My grandson locked my Ipad. it is showing "Activation Lock"

Customer Question
Technician's Assistant: What Operating...

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Ipad?

I haven't updated this particular Ipad for a while. Seems to me it was compatible with one of the IOS updates. I can't get into anything on it to find out.

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your Ipad? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It was a gift. Got it in 2011. Can't really do anything with it as I cant get passed the Activation Lock. It's an Ipad 2

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

You will need to go to https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid and type in your Apple ID and continue. Apple will then provide you with an option to reset your password ***** by email, security questions, text message, etc.

Once you have your password ***** then you can sign into the ipad. Let me know what happens.

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
