Question: Did Apple send out a “Apple ID is Locked” email saying security measures have changed?I receuvrd

I received an Email from Apple regarding the Locking of my Apple ID soon if I did not dig in and change/Update security measures.


And why is it when I set this up to use Apple Community and it sent a verification code it says my ID was being used Atlanta, Georgia. I changed password thinking someone was using my account. Repeated the same process and it did it again so I said allow and it sent me the code. Why is it giving a wrong location???

Apple will always address you by your real name, never by your email address or Dear Customer. Also the sent-from address should be @apple.com or @itunes.com Additionally Apple does not send attachments.

If this is an e-mail you received, or a popup on the screen, about the time you were actually logging in, there is probably nothing to worry about. The location in the e-mail is where your ISP reported it. If their servers are in a location distant from you, there will be a large error.

This is a scam. DO NOT click the 'verify' link or respond in any way: they are trying to discover your login. A real message from apple would have addressed you by name: and in any case Apple never send out messages like this If they do have to lock your account for security reasons they won't tell you, they will wait for you to find out and contact them. You can always check your account is OK by going directly to http://appleid.apple.com and checking there. Never ever respond to messages of this sort in any way.


It's a really bad idea to post your email address, even in an image - it's an invitation to spam - and I've asked the Hosts to remove it.
