How to remove an iCloud Activation Lock (iCloud Unlock)

Activation Lock (iCloud Lock) is a feature introduced with 'Find my iPhone', launched back in 2014 with iOS 7. This feature was implemented as part of a much more comprehensive system generally referred to as Factory Reset Protection or FRP. Factory Reset Protection or a "Kill Switch" as popularised by the Media, is regulated in the US with the Smartphone Theft Prevention Act of 2015. This act requires device manufacturers to feature a way for its legitimate owners to activate a "kill switch" should they need to wipe or lock the device remotely. This purpose of the kill switch was to discourage theft by dramatically reducing its value if stolen.

With all this in mind, most owners forget to remove or disable the Activation Lock or 'Find my iPhone' when selling their device, and this causes issues with the new owner when it comes to them enjoying their new Apple Device.

One of our most used services is the "iCloud Activation Removal Service or iCloud Unlock" this service has enabled over 500+ people a day to remove a previously locked device quickly and without too much cost.

Wow, I was shocked that it was this easy?! To get the activation removed from my iPhone 11 I used them as my sim unlock and that was super fast so great they performed again. Ican now setup my new phone as the previous owner wasnt being helpful, working perfectly with a movistar sim installed. A big thank you to directunlocks.com, ill be telling all my friends about your site.

All done in only 3 days. Thanks for keeping me informed the whole way. I live in Australia so buying phones online is a risky process ordering them from England, I read online that it was really hard but this was super simple, apple flat out refused to help me. I've setup my own iCloud account now so all is good. I've been recommending you to my pals.

Bought this iPhone off ebay and it came with a stupid locked icloud activation thinggy. Found this site off a how-to page that recommended it and im glad I found it was about to throw it in the bin. Got it working now and it replaced my broken phone that I dropped on a building site. Perfect.
