    Hello, A friend using my iCloud account has locked my macbook pro accidentally and he can't remember what's the pin code.
    So, how to unlock my mac using my cloud account or any other way ?
    Also. I've tied to enter recovery mode but the EFI is protected with code and I don't remember I set code for that before, this is the first time I open the EFI. In addition, when I start my macbook the countdown for entering code is automatically set on 60min one it reach 0 I get error message that code is incorrect and I didn't entered any code

    Take it to Apple with your proof of purchase and they can sort it for you. Unfortunately your story matches that of someone trying to get advice on how to unlock a stolen Mac.

    Idiot friend TBH, can't imagine how that can happen accidentally.

    Why would your friend have your icloud password too? I think you friend needs a password to lock anything (idevice or Mac). Does he/she has that password too? Suspicious.

    Why I'm not very sure about that, it's by mistake because he don't know so much in IT things. Also which password you are talking about he got my iCloud account with password.
    I don't have proof of purchase I bought since two years ago.

    No, having your password to your iCloud account does not qualify as proof of purchase. Apple needs to prove you are the rightful owner of the machine and having an iCloud account doesn't do anything in that regard.

    Check your emails, I always have Apple email me my receipt for just this sort of situation where I need to locate the receipt years after the fact.
