About authentication token

Top  Previous  Next

iCloud allows the users to store various information from their iOS devices in the cloud. macOS users can access iCloud without any additional software, as it is built into the operating system (iCloud requires macOS 10.7.2 or later).

 

iOS users can get access to their data on Windows OS as well. In this case, exchanging data between iOS devices and the computer is done via the iCloud for Windows (available for Windows 7 or later). This software allows the user to work with data from iOS on a computer with Windows OS.

 

EPB allows you to extract authentication token representing the user’s iCloud account credentials. You can use this token to sign in to the user's iCloud account in order to download the backups or files stored there. Extracting authentication token is available both from iCloud on macOS and from iCloud for Windows. It is also possible to get authentication token without logging in to an actual OS where the token was used (e.g., by mounting a disk image to the current system).

 

 

The following ways of extracting the token are available:
