Someone may have a password to access your account and make some changes to your account information. For your safety, you temporarily blocked the Apple ID for your account and the Apple community.
To unlock the Apple ID, check your account by entering the information you need earlier and updating the security settings. To complete the process, click the link below.
Apple users should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to https://appleid.apple.com/ and sign-in from there. If there is something wrong with their accounts, they will be alerted after signing in. Users who were tricked by the phishing scam, are asked to change their Apple account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently. For those users who are unable to change their passwords, are asked to contact Apple Technical Support for help.
