Fix iCloud account disabled for security reasons

iCloud is one of the services that notify you whenever your Apple ID has been disabled or locked. You might get the same alert whenever you try to use other apps or services (Itunes,MobileMe etc) that requires Apple ID. If you were about to buy a used Iphone or any Apple product from e-Bay or Amazon, make sure to ask about this. But now let's get your iCloud back.

What you need to do is to reset your account and restore access to the disabled services. use iForgot  - iforgot.apple.com , remember for iCloud user you need to type full email address  in the apple ID form.
Enter your Id to start the reset process

Your Id is disable due to security reason and for your own protection, if you incorrectly entered your password many times you will get one of this alert. There are other reason such as the phone is reported stolen or lost or the previous owner forgot their log in to iCloud.
  • This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons
  • Too many attempted sign ins
  • You can't sign in because your account was disabled for security reasons
  • This Apple ID has been locked for security reasons"
 Remember that if the alert was your Apple ID has been disable - this mean your account is in a serious security issue in which resetting your account will not work. You need to contact Apple directly for this issue and it would take more than 1 or 2 days to get back your account.

Can I activate iCloud without resetting the account?
There's no way you can bypass this and apple added this feature in the new 7.0 OS. If you create a new account, you will not be able to link back with the old disable account.

If you want to buy it from the online store, make sure to read the description/advertisement carefully. If you buy it from Amazon and the iCloud is locked, ask the reseller for the login or if he doesn't want to co-operate or does not remember, ask for a refund. If you unable to get a refund from the reseller, dispute the case to Amazon for a refund from them.
