Activation Lock is a feature of Find My iPhone that aims to prevent anyone else from using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch if it's lost or stolen. This feature is enabled by default when you turn on Find My iPhone. If your device is stolen, the thief will never access your device without knowing your device passcode. Even if they factory reset your device via DFU mode, they still won't be able to activate and use your device without removing the activation lock. From this point, activation Lock is a great feature.

If, however, your device is bought from someone else or received as a gift and you can no longer contact the previous owner, how to get rid of the activation lock of the ex-owner? Or what to do if you want to sell your device to someone else but can't remember the activation lock password?

Whichever the case, there are two feasible ways to remove the Find My iPhone or iPad activation lock without the previous owner. 

Part 1. Remove Activation Lock Without Previous Owner Directly with an iPhone Unlocker

If you hardly reach out to the previous owner, you'll have to resort to some activation lock removal tools for removing the iCloud lock. There are a lot of such tools available in the market, and one of the quickest options you can have is EaseUS MobiUnock, an iPhone unlocker that can remove various iPhone locks, including Apple ID, iCloud, Screen Time, and screen lock. More specifically, EaseUS MobiUnlock's capabilities include:

Part 2. Remove Activation Lock Without Previous Owner via Online Removal Services

You can also use some iCloud activation removal online services to bypass the activation lock on your iOS device.

Such services have advantages like convenience and ease of use. You don't even have to install any program. But on the downside, online activation removal services may come with viruses and malware, which might attack your computer's hard drive. 

Having said all of the above, you can use online tools to bypass the iCloud lock, but you need to utilize them at your own risk. Moreover, there is no guarantee that you'll be able to unlock the iCloud account successfully. 

If you've already well aware of all advantages and disadvantages of such services but still stick to them, here are two recommendations. 

1. AppleiPhoneUnlock

Step 2. Enter the details of your device as it asks.
