  1. Download the Find My iPhone app

    On a separate iOS device, download the Find My iPhone app, then log in with the same username and password that you used when signing up to iCloud. When logging in, do not use the credentials of the owner of the new iOS device to access the iPod.

  2. Choose Remote Wipe to reset the iPod

    After logging in to the Find My iPhone app, locate the iPod, then perform a Remote Wipe. This process deletes all data from the disabled device. However, the lost data can be recovered afterwards if it was backed up using iCloud before the iPod was disabled.

  3. Reset your password

    To avoid disabling the iPod in future, reset your password, and use a new one that is easier to remember. An iPod is usually disabled when a wrong password has been entered six times in a row, so after resetting the password, make sure the iPod is not used by other people.
