We all know that Activation Lock is a great security measure implemented by Apple on their iOS devices. Activation Lock prevents thieves from activating your device with another SIM card and erasing all of the data. However, it can be really frustrating when you are trying to sell or give away an old iPhone that has Activation Lock enabled. You have to go through the trouble of contacting Apple Support for assistance, which takes time and might not work at all! There is now an easier way – SafeUnlock’s Dummy ID app unlocks Activation Lock without any hassle!
What is the activation lock?
Activation lock is a security feature where Apple asks for your iCloud username and password to enable the Activation Lock on your device. If you forget this, there’s no simple way of recovering it! This makes Activation Lock an extremely effective theft deterrent as well – thieves won’t be able to use or sell your phone without knowing these details.
We all know how great the “Find my iPhone” can be in certain occasions, but it can be a real pain in the neck when you need to sell or give away your old devices. Activation Lock is also activated if someone resets and restores that iPhone without entering the iCloud details again, so this isn’t something we would recommend doing.

If Activation lock has been enabled on your device for whatever reason, you can use safeUnlock’s removal app to remove it. You don’t have to worry about the iOS model that your device is running – this app supports all versions of iOS from version 6 and up!

What do I need?
