I have forgotten my password ***** I am not sure how my Apple ID is not my email

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

I don’t remember. My email address is***@******.*** I am almost 69 yrs old and this the only email address I use. I am thinking that one of my kids put in this other address (*****@******.***. I don’t even know how to get into that email. When I try to put in my email (Bengi49) apple says that account in no longer available. But that is my original account I have it since we first got started with computers back in the 80’s. So if you could help me change my email address from***@******.*** TO

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

Customer:***@******.*** Then I can reset my password ***** well. No I am not sure how to do that either.

Hi there and welcome

If you have forgotten your Apple ID you used, you can retrieve i via the link below

https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid#!&section=appleid

Once done, you will likely need to reset your password ***** this you can do via my link below

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

Use the link to reset your password ***** once done use this new password
Once done, you can use these details to sign in on your device

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please.

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
