    Default Can Apple recover my iCloud Security Code?

    I found myself asking this after my mother went ahead with setting her iCloud security code up and pretty much instantly forgetting what it was. The answer I found:
    No. If you enter your iCloud Security Code incorrectly too many times, you won't be able to use that iCloud Keychain. You can contact Apple Support, who can help verify your identity so that you can try again to enter your iCloud Security Code. After a number of incorrect attempts, your iCloud Keychain is removed from Apple's servers and you will need to set up iCloud Keychain again.
    Could be worse I suppose, at least since I switched her to a Mac I no longer have 'weekly tech calls' with her, they're more bi-weekly now lol
