What to Do When You Forget Your Apple Password

Forgetting your Apple password can be a frustrating experience, especially if you rely on your Apple devices for work or school. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to reset your password and get back to using your device.

Reset Your Password with Apple ID

The first step is to reset your password using your Apple ID. This can be done by visiting the Apple ID website and clicking on the “Forgot Apple ID or Password” link. You will then be prompted to enter your Apple ID and answer some security questions. Once you have successfully answered the security questions, you will be able to reset your password.

Use Recovery Mode

If you are unable to reset your password using the Apple ID website, you may need to use Recovery Mode. This is a special mode that allows you to reset your device without having access to the original password. To access Recovery Mode, you will need to hold down the Home button and Power button simultaneously until the device restarts. Once in Recovery Mode, you will be able to reset your device and create a new password.

Contact Apple Support


If neither of these methods works for you, then it may be time to contact Apple Support for help. They can provide additional assistance in resetting your password or unlocking your device. It is important to note that they may require additional information from you in order to verify that it is indeed your device before they can help.

Forgetting an Apple password can be a frustrating experience, but with these steps, it doesn’t have to be. By following these steps, you should be able to quickly and easily reset your password and get back up and running with your device in no time.
