Guys, This Apple ID Text Is All A Scam. Don’t Fool For It

Guys, This Apple ID Text Is All A Scam. Don’t Fall For It

The Debrief: Whatever you do don't click on this

Have you been sent a text this past week from ‘Apple Inc?’ Did that text tell you that your iCloud is about to expire and be deactivated? If so, here’s some words of advice: DO NOT DO IT.  

Said message probably looks something like this: “Your Apple ID is due to expire today. Prevent this by confirming your Apple ID at (link) - Apple Inc.” 

The link will ask you to enter your date of birth, phone number, address and credit card details but please for the love of God, don’t do it. It’s a sneaky way for hackers to access all your information 

If you’ve already done it and are currently kicking yourself, go to iforgot.apple.com and change your password ASAP.
