Are you still able to change the password ***** now?

If you can, and they are getting in, it means they are added to your security. If you change that password ***** get back in, you have to

do 2 things STAT.

Tell me if you can change it and still have access to the email it is associated with originally, not just that email that is used in apple id.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

No there is encryption’s on everything all my emails and I can’t get in
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation.

What kind of encryption and on which email. In your apple login or the web server to the email you used for the apple id?

are you sure it is a family member? putting an encryption on someones emails/files is not easy to do.

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
