I keep getting like 2-3 of these emails a week. Ever since Apple ID was hacked, these emails haven't let up:


"Dear [deidentified],

To reset your Apple ID password, simply click the link below. That will take you to a web page where you can create a new password.

Please note that the link will expire three hours after this email was sent.

Reset your Apple ID password >

Questions? There are lots of answers on our Apple ID support page >

If you weren't trying to reset your password, don't worry – your account is still secure and no one has been given access to it. Most likely, someone just mistyped their email address while trying to reset their own password.


Thanks,
Apple Customer Support

^^ How do I get off this list? Is someone trying to hack my account again?
This one time, at Boot Camp, I stuck a flute up my PC.

Is the link to apple real? Don't click, hover.

If you're not sure, type in icloud.com yourself, and reset your password to be safe.
