Method 2. Using Online iCloud Removal Tools - Paid and Unreliable

If you've searched for "iCloud activation removal" from the internet, you will find many iCloud removal services online. They claim that they can bypass any lock, including activation lock, from your device. However, only a few of them can do as they claim in reality. What they want is to deceive you into clicking on their ads.

Most of such services claim they can bypass activation lock for you without a barrier, but very few do as they claim. Instead, their real purpose is to deceive you into clicking on their ads, which may contain viruses that can damage your computer.

Additionally, most of these services are paid, and they will charge you $40 or more to bypass the activation lock.

Let's take this as an example and see how it works to remove your Find My iPad activation lock.

Step 1. Find your IMEI code by using any of these ways.

  • In Settings: go to your Settings > General > About, scroll down to find the IMEI code.
  • Make a call: You can also dial *#06# from your phone.
  • Look for it at the back of your phone. If you own an iPhone 6 or earlier version iPhone, you can get the IMEI code quickly from the back of your phone.
  • Check it via Finder or iTunes. You can also contact your device to iTunes or Finder, click your device, and find the IMEI code under your name.

Step 2. Go to and choose "Check iPhone IMEI."

Step 3. Follow the on-screen instructions to unlock your device.

Step 4. On the final page, finish the payment. Then, you'll need to wait3-4 days to complete the unlock process.
