scifan57, Thank You for reply. To quote you, ‘A sure way of getting rid of that hacker is to erase your iPad and set it up as a new device with all new passwords.’ Well, I have used the ‘Erase all Content and Settings’ option twice within the past month or so, I restored my iPad once from a backup, once manually. Unfortunately it hasn’t stopped his access to my iPad. I’ve been to the computer shop each day for the last 3 or 4, today I found he’d disabled my ability to sign out of my Apple ID (Settings->[Your Name]->Apple ID->Sign Out disabled with a message ‘Sign Out is not Available Due to Restrictions.’). I got it sorted out with help (complicated path involving Screentime), and now the hacker’s disabled it again. I’d better write down the path this time; many steps! He won’t win.
