You have to change your apple password ***** get back into your itunes account if you forgot it.

Getting it to change will depend on what method you used. If you used email/security questions:

  1. Go to your Apple ID account page and click "Forgot Apple ID or password." If asked to confirm your phone number, use two factor method to get in.
  2. Enter your Apple ID.
  3. Select the option to reset your password, then choose Continue.
  4. Choose how to reset your password:
    • To answer your security questions, select "Answer security questions" and follow the rest of the steps.
    • To get email instead, select "Get an email." To reset your password, use the email that we send to your recovery email.
    • If asked for a Recovery Key, use the steps for two step or two factor to recover instead.

Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

What error does it say when you say 'quit' taking it?

If it is not taking the password, you will need to reset the password ***** try to log in again.

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
