    hey guys I need help as there is no Apple service centers near ....

    I locked my Mac using the lock my Mac on iCloud , a friend thought it would be funny to put the wrong 4 digit code I set in , in turn I get a white screen that says your computer is disabled try agian in 60 minutes

    After 60 minutes it does the same thing never giving me a option of entering correct code

    I have tried the command R and the command alt p r and it just counties to take it back to the computer disabled screen

    Computer is a Mac book pro (2015)

    Thanks in advance for any help !

    For Macs, if you can't enter the passcode (correctly) then take it, with the receipt, to Apple and they will remove it.

    One more example of why one should never, NEVER set a firmware password unless one has a VERY good reason to do so.

    Sounds like you have two options:
    1. Drive 4.5 hours to the nearest Apple Store (but be advised that you MUST have proof of ownership, or they won't help you).
    or…
    2. Perhaps go on ebay, and search for those offering (for a price) to reset the password. This IS NOT AUTHORIZED BY APPLE, but at least in some cases, can work. Up to you as to whether you wish to try it or not.

    Hey there, The same thing happened with me on my MacBook Pro (2017 model). No worries ,I know what you can do to unlock your Mac. Just Follow This Few Simple Steps And I am 100% Sure that your MacBook will be back to you after this.everything You need is just the Password of your Apple ID.

    The first thing you must do is get any other laptop of any of your friends or you can go to Cyber Cafe also for this.
    Just Google “www.icloud.com” in it.
    Why I am specifically saying to open only on other laptop is because if you have an iPhone and if you google it on iPhone,The browser opens the app directly but the app doesn’t have all the features.
    (www.icloud.com May not open on android phones also.)
    So better get any other computer and google it and log in with your iCloud account.
    And later click on find iPhone button.
    And sign in.
    Click “All Devices” on the top and select your mac and press unlock button and it will ask your iCloud password.
    And Done.
    Congratulations.♥️
