I forgot my password & had help last night getting that

Customer Question
I forgot my password...

I forgot my password & had help last night getting that taken care of. Now I am in the process of setting everything up. It has asked for apple ID & password. Where do I get that from?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

I didn't. I evidently did not write it down when I first got the ipad & set everything up.

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

No - where is that?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks

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
