My Apple TV keeps asking for authentication code as far as I know I have never had one and can’t even guess what it might be

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

Can’t remember but it was recently

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

Don’t know how to do that. I am not over skilled in computer skills

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?

That should,hopefully, be enough but if not I can always get back to you

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
