Customer Question
I changed the password...

I changed the password ***** now can't remember it. I've tried some that I use for other applications. No luck. What can I do?

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

Until today it had been a long time.

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

No. Tell me more please.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I just would appreciate some coaching on the online account reset tool...how to access, etc.

If you forget your Apple ID you can reset it with a rescue email or security questions.

Please click this link to begin:

http://iforgot.apple.com

Enter the Apple ID and the security code that you see and click continue.

Then you can choose to answer security questions or to receive a rescue email.

Whichever you prefer you can try first.

Let me know if there are any questions and I will get back to you.

Many 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
