"I'm unable to sign in to my iCloud account for over a week now. Though I got the iPhone 3 weeks ago, I was promised by the seller that I wasn't going to have any issues with the iPhone. But now I'm frustrated because I can't get past this iCloud lock".

If you're having this kind of issues, don't worry. In this article we'll show you an effective method to unlock iCloud. Before this, you need know whether a free iCloud removal can be trusted or not.

Can You Trust "iCloud Removal Free"?

There are various sites that claim to remove iCloud account for free, but you need to be very careful. They don't just work and it's not something I'd advise you to do.

From the moment "Find My iPhone" and iCloud Lock was introduced, many iCloud removal tools that claim to bypass these Apple security features emerged. Many of these free online tools that promise to hack your iCloud account are scam websites. What they want you to do is to download their so-called free tool to your device. Once you do that, the tool will have access to your private data. Too bad! These free iCloud removal tools are just bunch of malicious software. So, thread with caution.

If you think carefully, you should know that "nothing good comes easy." Therefore, free iCloud removal tools are just there to steal your private data or monitor your activity.

The Only Free iCloud Removal - Ask the Previous Owner for Help

When an iCloud account is locked, the moment you turn on the iPhone, you'll be stuck in iCloud activation lock screen. It will ask you to provide the iPhone's Apple ID and password. So, if your device is a second hand and you have the contact details of the original iPhone owner, you can ask him/her for free iCloud removal.

If the previous owner accepts to help you, he/she will need to use the following steps to disable the lock.

Step 1. Sign in to iCloud.com with the owner's Apple ID, then locate "Find iPhone".


Step 2. Select "All Devices" at the top of the phone's screen.

Step 3. Select the iPhone device you want to delete from iCloud.

Step 4. Finally, click "Remove from Account".


Step 5. Once the previous owner deletes the iDevice from his/her account, you should switch OFF the device and switch it ON again to setup your iCloud account with a new Apple ID.
