To clarify; is this concerning the stand alone 4/6 digit passcode to unlock the device OR is it the password ***** the Apple ID?

I'm sorry what do you mean ? I have an apple iPad that's probably 5 years old
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 4 months ago

I asked you if it was the passcode to unlock the iPad or the password ***** your Apple ID and you said "no".

that's right.
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 4 months ago

Ok, if it's not one of those that I mentioned then I need you to tell me what the password ***** ***** for...

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Shouldn't I have a password ***** an apple account ? I was just going through all my passwords and I didn't have one for apple
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 4 months ago

The only password ***** should have for Apple would be for the Apple ID I previously mentioned. It's the account you use for the iTunes and App Store and also for iCloud.

If you do not know this password ***** can reset it.

Your email address is normally used as the username for your Apple ID. You should be able to reset your password ***** a computer using the site:

http://iforgot.apple.com/

1) Enter your Apple ID and click Continue. (If you have forgotten your Apple ID, click the option to “look it up” on that same page and supply the requested info. Then, once you have the ID, return to reset the password ***** needed.)

NOTE: If you are asked to confirm your trusted phone number, or asked for a “Recovery Key”, AND you also have a Mac, iPhone, or iPad using the SAME Apple ID where you can currently access the home screen, STOP and let me know - otherwise continue.

2) Select the option to reset your password. Choose how to reset your password:

  • select "Answer security questions" to answer your stored security questions and then follow the rest of the steps.
  • select "Get an email" to receive an email you can use to reset your password.

3) Once you have the Apple ID and have reset the password, test out that it is working properly by signing into the Apple ID management site: https://appleid.apple.com/

While signed in, it's a good idea to verify that all other details are current and correct.

4) You should restart all your Apple devices before signing in with the new password.

If you still have concerns, don’t negatively rate my answer, just reply back and let me know. I'll be happy to advise you further. When finished, please give a positive rating so I can be credited for my assistance. You are judging my personal service only (not this website, the price, or your issue) and high ratings assure I remain in good standing.

Thanks and good luck,

John

I'm done.. I'm not understanding all you saying. I'm 83 years old and just like to play on my iPad. When I ask for help I didn't know I had to pay 25.00. I live on a fixed income. I've been retired from D R since 1977. Please refund my money I got nothing out of this.. and not his fault so much as I didn't get what he was trying to tell me. Please refund my 25.00. Thanks Mara Jo Maxwell.

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
