- Tram Ho
A few weeks ago, netizens circulated information about a website called M *******, allowing anyone to lock iCloud on any iPhone, as long as they know the IMEI / The Serial Number and Find My iPhone feature of that device are off.
This destructive tool has caused many iPhone users in Vietnam to be in misery, when their previous device, which normally used normally, has suddenly been locked iCloud after resetting the device to its factory state. Without knowing the iCloud account and password, the iPhone could not be activated and was like a paperweight.
Website M ******* can lock iCloud from any iPhone using only the IMEI number
Users can find out if they are victims of M ******* by checking the iCloud locked email. M ******* Emails are usually of the form “k*****@s*****.net”, “c*****@e*****.com” or “s*****@e*****.com”.
The iPhone is locked to iCloud by the M ******* website, which has a very specific email form k*****@s*****.net
Apple then assisted removing the iCloud account for iPhones locked by iCloud ******* if users contact the company’s switchboard. However, Apple makes it difficult for iPhone users in Vietnam to ask users to present invoices or proof of purchase in order to open iCloud.
Because iPhone laptops in Vietnam often have no clear origin, no invoices and vouchers, so iPhone users can only hold “clumsy news” in person. If they want to use their iPhone again, they must pay about 2 million for some iCloud unlocking services. For the old iPhone, the value is not high, many people have decided to sell the device at a cheap price because the money to unlock iCloud is not worth it.
However, the good news for iPhone locked iCloud users by M ******* has come: Apple has removed iCloud for all victims of M *******, free of charge and completely unconditional.
According to information shared on many technology groups in the country, after they restored the iPhone stuck with a strange iCloud account, their iPhone was able to activate normal use. Luu Duc Trong users also shared an email from Apple to confirm this.

Of course, this applies to both genuine and portable iPhones, so portable iPhone users will have iCloud unlocked at no cost.
To be able to restore iPhone, users will need to connect iPhone to computer and use iTunes software (or Finder on macOS Catalina).
