Now that more users are concerned about their passwords being leaked, phishers are on a spree to convince people that Apple is sending out emails with password-change requests. The security firm goes to describe what an Apple ID phishing email looks like with various examples for different countries, complete with inline images.
Some of the emails are so well crafted that they could look legitimate even to the trained eye. Australia was most recently hit by a ransomware attack that leverages Find My iPhone to remotely lock devices.
Opinion: Do services really have the kind of revenue potential Apple would like us to believe? By actually using an active email address for your Apple ID, you will receive important emails from Apple.
Apple will also email you if the password for your Apple ID was changed, someone tried using Find My Device, or your Apple ID was used on a brand new device.

It is important to track this information in order to stop an issue if someone has hacked your account. Some people need to change the email address associated with the Apple ID, because they either set it up with an embarrassing email that they created when they were a child, no longer have access to the email address because it was hacked, or it was set up with a .edu email address or business email address that is no longer accessible. If your Apple ID is already verified, next to where your Apple ID is listed, there is a a blue edit button (on the right side).When you click that, you will then be able to change the email address associated with the Apple ID.
Once you have the new email address typed in, you will press the Save Changes button in blue (on the lower right side). Then, on all of your devices, you are able to sign out of the iTunes and App Store, and sign out of iCloud. If your Apple ID is not verified, and you want to change the email address, there is an Edit button in blue on the right hand side. I’ve had trouble with my old inactive email address continuing to show in popups prompting me to sign into my account.

One such phishing email from early May came with the following subject lines, according to the Mountain View security firm. Featuring actual Apple graphics (such as a paper theme that casts a shadow underneath the message), the message very much resembles an official email from the Cupertino giant. However, you can add an additional email address to that account to receive emails from Apple. If you typed in the correct email address you want to use for your Apple ID, press the Send Verification Email button in blue.
We’ve outlined some best practices to avoid falling into the trap and even how to regain control of a hacked device.
