While iPhones and Macs are less prone to viruses and mal-ware, it doesn’t mean that they are immune to everything. Ever since IOS 7, there has been a weird bug that request for you to input your iCloud ID password over and over. Even after you input the password, it keeps asking you over again. If this happens to you, it’s best to take precautions and check to make sure your Apple ID hasn’t been compromised and as always stay away from unknown free wifi hotspots.

Reset your iDevice

It isn’t normal for your device to continuously prompt you for your most valuable password. However, if you recently changed your password or e-mail through a computer, it will prompt you on your phone.

  • Navigate to Settings>iCloud and tap “Sign Out”  and then “Delete from (Device)”.
  • Now you will have to disable Find My iPhone (Settings>iCloud>Find my iPhone (off)
  • Once you’ve reset your phone, you can return to Settings>iCloud and sign back into iCloud

Reset Your iCloud Password and Possibly your E-mail password 

If you feel like your iCloud or perhaps even your e-mail has been compromised, it’s best to change both passwords just to be on the safeside. If your iCloud account is link to multiple devices (mac, ipad, iphone, ipod, etc) then it would be a good idea to change your password. Again, even though Macs are not likely to get viruses, they are vulnerable to certain sites that steal saved passwords.
