What is the best way to prevent a thief from changing your AppleID on an iPhone once they have the phone and have accessed the phone (the problem was reported in a Wall Street Journal article last week)? It appears the current Apple ID is not needed to change to a new ID, and if a physical security key (passcode) is in place, it can be removed to revert back to the 2-factor system whereby a code is sent to the stolen iPhone.
Almost a month back an iphone user published a story about how thieves are taking over Apple IDs by stealing iPhones. But, before they steal the iPhone they monitor you and get to know your iPhone passcode. Once they know the passcode on your iPhone they can easily change the password on your Apple ID from the iPhone they just stole. In this video we will show you a simple trick which will stop thieves from changing the Apple ID password using your stolen iPhone.
