I have an Ipad...

I have an Ipad 2 and it has somehow got to Activation Lock. I am on my desk top computer now. I do not remember the apple id or password ***** it. How do I get it off this activation lock so I can use it again

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

Today

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I do not know how to do that

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

Well I think my daughter set the Ipad up years ago.

How do I bypass lock

I understand but end user can't bypass this high tech security because apple is more concern about the theft concern.

If you wish you can check with the apple Security team by over the phone 1-***-***-****/(1-***-***-****). Or in this case I will opt-out and allow another expert to take over. Other experts will be able to see this activation lock issue and the conversation which you had with me and they will be providing you a alternate solution. Thank you for your patience.

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
