iCloud services are currently the most reliable and most secured services, and it provides secure breaches to the content of its users
What is iCloud Account lock?
This is a security feature which is originally designed by Apple to prevent someone from using the Device without the original owner’s consent.
If the case is, the Device is stolen or lost, and the iCloud account locked out in the Device and it became unusable until the users provide valid credentials, which improves the actual owners’ chances of getting their Device back.
The Device’s hardware number and Apple ID’s are linked, and the information is securely stored in Apple ID secured servers, so it is not possible to break this security feature.
