So uh...

 

 

 

I had to turn my iPhone in to Apple for a replacement, and I *may* have forgotten to deactivate 2FA (and lost my recovery code). What do I do now?

 

 





Hi! I'm TheoM, but you know that already. I run Linux mirrors in NZ together with 2degrees. Like a mirror added? PM me!

If you don't have access to any of your trusted devices (Mac, iPhone, iPad etc) and have lost your recovery key etc then the only thing to do is to create a new Apple ID.

Argh my apologies. Brain isn't 100% today. Totally misread that.

 

@freitasm should be able to help you out here. In future though, it is worth using Authy for 2FA.

(Third reply to get his name right...)
