    I've just had an email saying

    has been used to log in to iCloud through a web browser. and your cloud has been locked,Click this button to verify identity (Resolution Center) please verify your identity under 24 hours !
    The email address is not Apple based (that I can tell!) and the webpage I am supposed to put my details into looks Appley, but the address isn't really - https://service.manage.id.netidservc...6ce&country=FR


    Is this some kind of scam/fishing thing?

    I can't think that I've actually logged into my iCloud in any way that isn't normal for me, so I' a bit confused!!

    Oh, and I seem to be able to get into my iCloud files on the computer??

    If you ever get anything like that saying your account has been locked, or there is an issue, etc...

    Close the email, open the browser and type the URL for the website/service and check for yourself. NEVER click the link in the email

    Real emails telling you your account has a problem never have a "fix it" link IME. They just say "log in to your account for more details".
