If you linked your mailbox to an iCloud account on another service, an email will be sent to it with a link to reset your password. The letter may be in the Spam folder, so be sure to check it. After clicking on the link, you will be taken to the password reset page. Restoring access to iCloud:
- Enter a new password.

If this doesn’t help you remember your Apple ID, call support. Get ready to prove that you are the rightful owner of the device. The best confirmation of this would be a purchase receipt.

Password recovery fails
If you can’t recover your password, turn off iCloud services on your phone.

You will only have to leave the “Find iPhone” function left on. it cannot be deactivated without a security key. If you bought the phone from your hands, and the seller remained with iCloud, then he will be able to remotely lock the device. Therefore, it is important when checking to make sure that the iCloud profile of the previous owner is deleted.
If you created the account yourself and then forgot the password, then nothing bad will happen. you just can’t use some of the useful iPhone features anymore until you find a way to recover iCloud mail.
