Hello,

The key chain feature remembers some application and website passwords, but it is still associated with your apple ID and that password, and won't remember that main one. You will want to go to apple.com and login in, but hit "forgot password" and follow the instructions to reset that, then, if you still want to try key chain, see the following link for instructions!

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
