Tenorshare 4MeKey Review: Does It Work to Bypass iCloud?

Hi Darren,
Does Tenorshare 4Mekey Activation iPhone Activation Unlocker worth trying? I got an iCloud locked iPhone but cannot get access to the seller.
Any help would be much appreciated.

iCloud Activation Locks aren’t an easy thing to remove from an iOS device.

On one hand, they’re a great security feature for preventing unwanted users from accessing the device, but on the other hand, if you own the device and don’t know the iCloud password or it’s a second-hand device, you’re going to be in a spot of bother.

Tools are available for removing iCloud Activation Locks and the tool we’re going to focus on in this review is Tenorshare 4MeKey. This tool claims to be effective but many users are uncertain about this, so this review will be exploring whether or not it works.

Part 1. Tenorshare 4MeKey Review: Is It Safe? Does It Work?

To help you learn this software better, it’s necessary to know what is it.

1.1 What is Tenorshare 4MeKey?

Tenorshare 4MeKey is basically a tool that is used to bypass iCloud Activation Lock on an iOS device without having the account password.

In situations where you’ve forgotten your password or the previous owner left their iCloud account signed into the device, this is the type of tool that you’d want to try.

1.2 Does Tenorshare 4MeKey Work?

To determine whether or not Tenorshare 4MeKey is an effective tool for removing an iCloud Activation Lock, we put it to the test.

We tried both the Windows and Mac versions of the software and tested multiple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch (which had varying iOS versions installed).

From this testing, we were able to find out that Tenorshare 4MeKey is actually suitable for this task and yes, it does work!

1.3 Features

It is a simple yet elegant piece of software that offers a straightforward iCloud bypass system that anyone can use without expertise in this area. It works on many devices and users get to use features like:

  • Bypass iCloud locks from iPhones, iPads, and iPods
  • Supports iOS versions 12.3 to iOS 14.6
  • Get rid of iCloud locks without having the Apple ID or account password
  • Totally bypass activation lock without previous owner
  • The free trial can detect whether your device is  supported or not

1.4 Disadvantages

Tenorshare 4MeKey has everything you’d expect to see from an iCloud Activation Lock removal tool, but it doesn’t come without any flaws.

  • After factory resetting an iOS device, the iCloud lock will reactivate
  • Even after bypassing the lock with this tool, certain iCloud features can’t be used
  • Additionally, you can’t sign in with a different iCloud account
  • When removing the iCloud lock, Tenorshare 4MeKey jailbreaks your iOS device which is risky

1.5 Is 4MeKey Free to Use?

To some extent, Tenorshare 4MeKey is free to use. But if you use the free version of the software, you’re going to be limited to the features you have access to.

For that reason, we’d recommend you buy one of the licenses to use the full potential of this software. The licensing options are:

  • 1 Month License. Can be used on up to 5 devices, $35.95/month.
  • 1 Year License. Can be used on up to 5 devices, $39.95/year.
  • Lifetime License. Can be used on up to 5 devices, $49.95/one-time fee.

If you’re only using the software once, then the single month license might be ideal. However, if you see yourself using it every so often, a lifetime license is more worthwhile.

1.6 Is 4MeKey Safe to Use?

Yes, we scanned the installation file with Norton, Kaspersky, Avast and ESET, there was no virus found.

But if you use the crack version of Tenorshare 4Mekey, we cannot guarantee its safety. Do not trust any track version or “free registration code” online.

Part 2. Tenorshare 4MeKey Doesn’t Work? Try the Alternatives!

Tenorshare 4MeKey doesn’t support your device? No problem, here are some alternatives that we’d also recommend you check out.

2.1 AppleiPhoneUnlock

First, we have AppleiPhoneUnlock and the reason we recommend this online service is because it’s incredibly effective at removing iCloud locks from iOS devices. The main features of this service are:

  • iPhones are remotely unlocked and jailbreaking the device isn’t required
  • After buying an unlock, the iCloud lock is permanently removed (even after factory reset)
  • All iCloud features are accessible after unlocking the device
  • Supports unlocking iCloud on all iOS versions and devices
  • Very fast iCloud Activation Lock removal – in just 24 hours if you use FastTrack
  • If the lock removal is unsuccessful then you receive a moneyback guarantee

Given that you can request a refund if the iCloud Activation Lock isn’t removed, there’s no risk of wasting your money with this service. If you’re interested and want to use this service, go ahead and follow these steps:

Step 1. Visit the AppleiPhoneUnlock iCloud Removal page.

Step 2. Type in your device’s IMEI number which can be found by dialling *#06#, and select the device model before clicking Remove Activation Lock.

Step 3. On the next page you can add FastTrack to your order and must agree to the Terms of Service, then click on your preferred payment method.

Step 4. Enter your payment details and once you pay for the service, your order will begin processing.

Step 5. Depending on if you bought FastTrack, the unlock will be processed between 1-24 hours.

This is the fastest way of unlocking an iCloud Activation Lock especially when you add the FastTrack option to your order. So, if you want it done ASAP, AppleiPhoneUnlock is the best service to use.


  • All your data will be erased from the device

2.2 Tenorshare 4uKey

This next solution is also offered by Tenorshare and is called 4uKey. It’s very similar to Tenorshare 4MeKey except this software leans towards unlocking different types of locks – lock screen passcodes and Touch/Face ID, as well as Apple ID. Here’s how to use this software for removing an iCloud Activation Lock.

Step 1. Install Tenorshare 4uKey on your computer and click Unlock Apple ID on the main screen.

Step 2. Use a lightning cable to connect your iPhone to your computer.

Step 3. If Find My iPhone is disabled, the software will remove the Apple ID instantly and without wiping the data. If Find My iPhone is enabled, you will then be given instructions on resetting the device.

Step 4. After doing a reset, the Apple ID removal will then proceed.

As you can see from the steps above, 4uKey and 4MeKey have a lot of similarities. Since 4MeKey focuses more on removing iCloud locks, it may be the better choice (although this is still a great alternative to use).


  • Only works for devices running iOS 11.4 and earlier
  • If Find My iPhone is on then you will lose all of your data

2.3 DirectUnlocks

Lastly, we have another online service and this time its DirectUnlocks. This service varies from AppleiPhoneUnlock in several ways – not just limited to the speed of the removal and the cost of the service.

However, regardless of which of the services you use, the end result will be the same and the iCloud Activation Lock will be removed.

DirectUnlocks works with any iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Apple Watch, any iOS version, and for devices in any country. All you have to do is send the IMEI and pay, and they handle everything for you.


  • iCloud lock removal can take between 5-10 days


You now have a handful of options to choose from when it comes to removing an iCloud Activation Lock. Either use one of the services we introduced you to or try one of the Tenorshare software solutions.

Tenorshare 4MeKey has proven to us that it is an effective tool and as we found out from testing it on our devices, it actually works. Nonetheless, we understand some users aren’t fond of software and would prefer to pay a professional to handle it for them – this is why we suggest some services too!

  • I’m just a regular user and interested if you will let me post this honest comment about the above services. I don’t know everything but this is my experience.

    I tried Tenorshare 4meKey and Reiboot and found that they were actually good tools worth paying for. It allows resetting/jailbreak/bypassing the iCloud activation (returns after restarting device) but it’s good for getting some kind of use out of the device, maybe for testing, internet browsing, apps etc. Just doesn’t allow GSM phone calling etc.
    All the best!
