No I can’t. She tried to reset the Apple ID and it said it sent instructions to my husbands ipad wich we no longer have. It is either an iPhone 6s or 7. That’s all I know

Got anything else that I could try to answer?
Mac Support Specialist: Karthik, Mac Enthusiast replied 3 months ago

I understand but without the full information it is very hard to reset the account password ***** my end. In this case, you can reach Apple Account Security team over the phone at 1-***-***-**** and verify your account information. If possible they could provide you some alternate solution.

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
