How do I clear an Activation Lock on my device?

Activation Lock is designed to keep your device and your information safe in case your devices get lost or stolen.

The prerequisites for Activation Lock Bypass are:

  • iOS 7.1 or greater must be installed.
  • The device must be supervised, using Apple Configurator or Apple's DEP.
  • The device must have a managed Apple ID configured.
  • The device must have Find my iPad (or Find my iPhone) enabled.
