The process of recovering your Apple ID password ***** ***** steps - the first is needed, if you have forgotten what your Apple ID is. (If not, you can skip to the second step.)

1.

To recover first your Apple ID, then its password ***** go to this page:

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

and follow the process it recommends, to recover your Apple ID.

2.
Then with your Apple ID, you go to this page and follow its process, to recover your Apple ID's password:

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

and enter your Apple ID there, and then click on 'Continue'.

(This may be done on any computer or smart device with internet and web page access.)

This device is not my computer but my ipad I did what you told me to do it still wont let me reset my id or password ***** side I cant use my email address because it is already used that the ive had al ready.
Mac Support Specialist: Russell H., Long-time Computer Expert replied 3 months ago

I think that error message indicates that you have tried to create a new Apple ID, rather than to find your existent Apple ID for sure (the first stage), then reset the password ***** that Apple ID to a known value (the second stage.)

Please try doing it according to my instructions... since an Apple ID is a networked function, you can (and should) do the process of finding and recovering/resetting, on a different device than on your iPad... unless you can log into it and use internet and web browser just fine, of course.

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
