Answered by Phillip Nicastro

It is possible to disable Find My iPhone without the password. I will provide you with a detailed step-by-step guide on how to do this.

1. Start by opening the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad.

2. Scroll down and tap on “iCloud.”

3. If you are using an older version of iOS, you will see “iCloud” at the top of the Settings menu. Tap on it.

4. Once you are in the iCloud settings, scroll down and look for “Find My iPhone.” Tap on it.

5. You will see a toggle switch next to “Find My iPhone.” If the switch is toggled on (green), it means that Find My iPhone is enabled. To turn it off, simply tap on the toggle switch. It will turn white, indicating that it is now disabled.

6. After turning off Find My iPhone, you may be prompted to enter your Apple ID password to confirm the action. However, there is a way to avoid this step.

7. Press and hold the power button on your iPhone until the “Slide to power off” slider appears. Release the power button.

8. Instead of sliding to power off, press and hold the Home button until the app screen reappears. This will exit the power off screen.

9. Now, go back to the iCloud settings by following the previous steps.

10. Tap on your Apple ID at the top of the iCloud settings page.

11. A pop-up menu will appear. Select “Delete Account” from the options provided.

12. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion of the iCloud account. Tap on “Delete from My iPhone.”

13. At this point, you may be asked to enter your Apple ID password again. However, since Find My iPhone has been disabled, you can proceed without entering the password.

14. After confirming the account deletion, your iCloud account will be removed from your iPhone, and Find My iPhone will be disabled.

It’s important to note that disabling Find My iPhone without the password could have consequences, especially if you plan to sell or give away your device. It is always recommended to remember or reset your Apple ID password to ensure the security of your device and personal information.
