My Apple ID got blocked the other day. Why did this happen? I am so used to having my password saved on my browser and have given up remembering them a long time ago. Now, I had to do a cleanup of my Macbook and in the process deleted the saved passwords and the file that had the saved passwords. Before I knew it, I was struggling to remember passwords. Having my Apple ID blocked was something that had not happened to me before.
My apple ID got blocked as I tried to log in way too many times with wrong passwords. Before long, I was staring helplessly before I tried a few whiz stuff and found my way out. Have your Apple ID blocked? No worries, here is how you can fix it. Apple has a separate webpage where they address this issue.
Apple ID blocked – How to FIX IT
- Visit iforgot.apple.com on your Safari/other web browser.
- Enter your Apple ID and click on continue.
- You can choose to get an email from Apple or answer your security questions.
- Follow on-screen instructions depending on what you chose to retrieve your Apple ID. Just make sure you remember the answer to your security questions if you choose that option.
That is all there is to it. If you have difficulties trying to enable your blocked/disabled Apple ID, contact Apple for additional help.
TIP: Never choose your security questions randomly and give random answers. Chances are you will not remember them when you need them!
Tip: Always have a strong password, have two-step verification enabled. Make sure your password is something that you remember very well. I changed mine to something that I remember very well now.
Tip: Never disclose your Apple id anywhere.

A completely patched MacBook computer can easily be hacked by hackers. Charlie Miller, a security researcher, once more wooed all the contestants who participated in the competition, Pwn2Own 2009. The competition was jointly held with the Tenth Annual CanSecWest Conference at Vancouver.
Charlie Miller hacked into the MacBook within a couple of seconds. For hacking, he used a security weakness which occurs in Safari browser of Apple. Last year’s championship was also won by Charlie Miller. As the winner of the championship to hack MacBook computer, Miller got cash prize of $10,000 and the hacked MacBook machine.
On an interview with Miller, he told the interviewer that even before participating in the CanSecWest security conference, he has planned to use Safari browser to hack into the MacBook computer. “It took a couple of seconds. They clicked on the link and I took control of the machine”, Miller said seconds just after the success.
