    Arrow How can I be sure that you are not a hacker?

    I have spent considerable time doing as instructed in emails ostensibly from Apple to establish that I am person I claim to be. How do I know that these instructions come from Apple, not from a hacker who will benefit from knowing my Apple ID, password and Recovery Key?

    1. iMore is not Apple
    2. Apple will never send you an email requesting your Apple ID, pasword, or Recovery Key.
    3. Emails from Apple that I receive from my purchases in iTunes are from "no_reply@email.apple.com". Check the exact sender of whatever emails you are questioning.
    4. You should CALL Apple on the phone to verify your information.
