Since getting my gmail account I have not changed it

Regarding your***@******.*** email account. Even though you do not use it still, may not mean we can't get into it. Have you tried to reset your***@******.*** email password? Besides that have you tried to answer your security questions.

What is your birthdate?

I answered all the security questions. I removed or deleted my aol address on my computer and tablet and phone but aol keeps coming up automatically. I figured it was because it remained on my apple ID
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 1 month ago

Well, just because you deleted it off your computer does not mean that the account can't be accessible. LEt me check something.

Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 1 month ago

Ok are you able to use a computer or any device and go to https://mail.aol.com/ and sign in. If not you can click the "forgot password" link on the same page near the sign on screen.

If not let me know and I can try.

Not sure of the pet question but Chevy nova was the car question
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 1 month ago

Do you have a guess for the pet?

Wouldn’t it be easier to delete the old account and open a new one?

Abby or Abigail
Or rocky
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 1 month ago

We can definitely set you up with a new account however, depending on why you need to reset the password ***** your apple id may affect you. For example, if your apple device is locked and does not let you in because of the apple id and password ***** would have to unlock it first and the new account could not be used until that is fixed. So it all depends on why you need to reset the apple id password ***** begin with. Therefore, why are you needing to reset the apple id password?

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
