How To Recover Your Hacked Apple Account Easily

Think about all the information you store and share online. Now imagine that email, Amazon, or is hacked, and all that information is in someone else's hands. It may have already happened to you, because it happens to people every day, all over the world.

It's frustrating to realize someone else is parading as you, and frightening to think that they're using your credit card or your information to open other accounts in your name. You may have to contact the company for help in recovering your hacked account, which can be time-consuming as you wait for a reply.

There's a simpler way. DoNotPay can help you recover your hacked Apple account along with other hacked accounts, like Snapchat, Instagram, your bank, PlayStation, Hotmail, Steam, and more.

How to Tell If Your iCloud Account Has Been Hacked

Several signs indicate your account has been hacked. These include:

  • You receive a notification that your Apple ID was used to sign in on a new device
  • You receive confirmation that your password was successfully changed—but you didn't change it
  • You get charged for purchases you didn't make
  • Your account details have been changed
  • Your password doesn't work

What to Do Next if Your Apple Account Is Hacked

The first step is to change your Apple ID password:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Select your name, then "Password & Security"
  3. Choose "Change Password"
  4. Enter your current password, then your new password
  5. Tap "Change"
  6. Login with your new password

If that doesn't work because someone has already changed your password, you'll need to take a different approach:

  1. Go to the iForgot page
  2. Enter your Apple ID
  3. Select the "Reset Your Password" option, then "Continue"
  4. You can answer your security questions, receive an email, or enter a Recovery Key
  5. Follow the next steps on your screen

If this doesn't work, or if it's taking too long, you can use Account Recovery as a last resort. There is a waiting period of several days as they work to verify your ownership of the account.

  1. Start account recovery on the iForgot page
  2. Avoid using any device where you're logged in with your Apple ID to avoid delays in the account recovery process, including the device you used to start the account recovery process
  3. After the waiting period, you'll get a text or automated call from Apple with instructions
  4. Follow the instructions to access your Apple ID

By the time you try everything and enter the account recovery waiting period, it could be days or weeks before you regain access to your . In that time, your hackers can do what they want with your account and the information inside.

Instead of struggling to figure out what to do next or waiting for days for a resolution, DoNotPay can put pressure on the company to help you get back into your account quickly and easily.
