iCloud Bypass Activation Scam

Posted on: December 8, 2015 in Hardware, Scams, Software

There have been a lot of people trying to bypass iCloud activation. iCloud activation is essential to protecting iOS devices. While there are a few legitimate reasons to bypass iCloud, such as a forgotten iCloud password, many people wish to bypass the security in order to sell or use stolen devices.

If you have been following the jailbreak scene for any amount of time, you have probably heard of Muclenerd. He has been in the iOS world for a while and has played an important role in jailbreaking iOS. He warns about scammers targeting people who want to bypass iCloud activation.

Bypassing iCloud activation started when two hackers introduced a method to bypass Apple’s iCloud security. They introduced a server called doulCi which unlocked iPhone’s and bypassed iCloud activation. Since then no other method or server is available that can bypass iCloud. Even the doulCi server does not work anymore. But that doesn’t stop scammers from creating fake ones.

New so-called iCloud activation software, shops, and scammers have popped up, trying to lure people into paying them to bypass iCloud on iOS devices. As you can guess, the people behind this not only scam your money but they do not bypass iCloud.

Musclenerd tweeted the following:

So I suggest you to stay far away from these shady services which offer to bypass iCloud activation for a fee – they are fake! Never trust someone dealing in these types of services. Even if these scammers do bypass iCloud activation, there is no telling how long it will last or what other types of legal implications you may face using these devices.
