Activation Lock is a feature that can prevent devices from being erased or reactivated without the Apple ID credentials of the user who originally enabled this feature. It ties a device to its user’s Apple ID, and makes it so that the Apple ID and password must be used in order to allow erasing and reactivation.
Activation Lock is great for helping to prevent stolen devices. If enabled, devices will reach an “Activation Lock” screen in Setup Assistant and will be unable to proceed without either the Apple ID that enabled the feature.
Fleetsmith helps to ensure it does not get in the way of your ability to re-provision devices in a variety of ways. .
