Customers who use Apple’s iCloud on a daily basis probably noticed that spam invites coming to their account saw a massive surge during the last couple of weeks. If you’re one of them and are annoyed by spam invites we may have a solution for you.
For now, the spam invites are limited to the Calendar and Photo Sharing features of iCloud, with the user getting a request to share or view an image, or an album in iCloud Photo Sharing. Now, if you get a spam invite and select “decline,” the negative answer will just alert the sender of the spam invite about your account being active, meaning they will continue sending spam invites.
Basically, it’s better to just ignore the spam invite since that way you won’t alert the spammer about your profile being active. When you choose “decline” option, the spammer will know you’re active and will keep sending you spams to your Calendar and Photo Sharing. This can be quite irritating especially since, for instance, when you receive a spam email you can choose to put the email address of the sender in the spam filter, and even if you click on the spam email, the sender can’t know about your account being active.
For all people who are constantly receiving spam invites on their iCloud, just follow these steps and stop spam invites from coming.
