iCloud is one of the cloud services on Apple, it is responsible for synchronizing data between iOS devices such as iPhone or iPad, Macbook and your computer.
Thus, it can be said that the iCloud account (also known as AppleID) is as important as the device itself, forgetting the password or having someone log into the iCloud account into the device will make us lose the right to use the device.
