I assume you mean your Apple ID password? Go here and put in your information: https://iforgot.apple.com

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, it is NOT my Apple ID password. In iTunes there is an option to encrypt your information, so that nobody could obtain my information when synchronizing the iPhone in iTunes. I selected to encrypt the information, it has been a long time since then, & I can not recall the encryption Password.
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago

OK if you saved it in your keychaine you can get it back:

Open Keychain Access, found in /Applications/Utilities/
Use the Search box in the upper right corner and type “iphone backup”

Double click the result, assuming something is found in Keychain
Check the box next to “Show password” and enter the Mac administrator password ***** reveal the lost password ***** with the encrypted iPhone backup

Where is key chain? Is that in my iPhone, iPad, or iTunes?
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago

That is in Applications / Utilities on your Mac.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
