I am unable to access my account.

Customer Question

I am unable to access my account. I am being told that my password ***** ***** When I try to reset my password, via email, I don't receive an email. When I try to reset my password ***** security questions, it tells me that it does not recognise my date of birth. I have not been able to send or receive emails for the last few hours. The message I am receiving is telling me that my account has been disabled for security reasons. Before this happened, all day I was receiving notifications on the screen of my iPad, iPhone and Mac book asking me to sign in with my Apple ID and password.

They will be able to reset your information and issue a temporary password.
