iPad 2 with activation lock in place

Avatar David Fleetwood
We have unearthed an old iPad 2 which we gave to our son many years ago but which has lain unused for ages. Unfortunately he linked it to an Apple ID using an old email, which he cannot remember, despite multiple suggestions/threats from us.
There seems no 'official' way of removing this lock without the ID & password but there are adverts for software which supposedly 'does the trick' eg EaseUSMobUnlock. Does anyone have any experience of this type of software and are they safe to use?

What a stew... Have you looked at this Apple support article? ? There are a lot of references to this issue on-line...

Have a look at this You Tube video I seem to remember resetting an old iPad this way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1tY55HuEWw
