We would need to know the email for your apple id to reset the password.

This may help to get you started.

I tried to accept your request for a secure remote connection ( screen sharing ) and it said payment failed. This sometimes happens if your bank or credit card company blocks the transaction and a quick call to them will usually lift the block

For further information you can call our customer service department.

1.***-***-****

In the meantime I am sending the remote connection offer back to you to be approved when you are ready.

it looks like 40 was paid
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

I believe that was for written support. It only goes through if answer is accepted. You requested remote support

where we connect pcs and i assist you.

I cannot see full details of your account. I am a tech. Only you and customer service can see that side.

To assist you further, i would need to know what the email is for your apple ID. Or find it if you used it on a computer

or a phone/ipad etc in account settings.

I cannot recover an email if we dont know what it is to start with. We have to start by 'finding' it.

my e mail is***@******.***
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is that what you neef
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Perfect. You will use that email and reset 'here'.

If you forgot your apple password:

Use your Apple ID account page at this link
https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=signin

You can reset your password ***** you go to your Apple ID account page and click Forgot Apple ID or password.

Enter your Apple ID, select the option to reset your password, then click Continue.

After you enter your Apple ID, you can see how to reset your password ***** on the security features that you're using with your account. For example, if you set up two-factor authentication, your steps will be different than if your account uses security questions.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know. Reply with any and all errors or concerns referring to your technical issue.

Thank you,

~Franklin

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
