Raise your hand that is not found in this frame of mind at some point in their relationship with Apple… I don’t see anybody raise your hand, so I move on to give advice to recover it quickly and not die in the attempt.
“But if this is!, I’m completely safe”. Once at this point we have several options, depending on the device before that we find, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, MacBook, iMac. but maybe it would be good to remember that the password must be made at least 1 uppercase, 1 lowercase, 1 number, being its minimum length of 8 characters.
It is also interesting to know that, although above where we are introducing it appears our email, it is not our email password, this is one of the most common errors. Even so nothing? Since then, we turn to the following options.
How to recover it from our iOS device.
If it happens to us in front of our mobile device we have several options, but perhaps the fastest is which appears to us after several failed attempts, ‘iForgot’. After clicking this icon we redirects directly to the page “My Apple Id”. Once at this point, we are offered two options to recover it:
The first is to reset your password via email, that we associate with Apple. If we choose this option, they will send us automatically an e-mail with a link where you can enter the new password.
The second, to respond to those questions of security that made us the day we create the account or at any other time. If we properly respond automatically will appear a window where you can enter a new password, with the characteristics that you said earlier.
One option that we have from our iOS devices more is to retrieve it directly from the settings, so we must navigate the menu until you find the section called “iTunes Store and App Store”, once selected click on our “Apple ID” and done once already annotated ‘iForgot’ option will appear to us, and we only follow the steps mentioned above.
As Council to complete this tutorial, it is important to point the data of our Apple ID in a safe place. We should point out both the password and e-mail that we’ve partnered, never do it within the device itself since, although most comfortable, is if we have the misfortune of losing it and it falls into the wrong hands we would be giving you direct access to buy what it wants with our Apple ID.
How to recover it from your browser.
If we do not remember our password and want to retrieve it directly from any browser we search in Google, “My Apple ID”.
Once clicked the correct link will appear to us a website where we can do several things, the option that interests us (our password reset) or manage any of the points of our ID. Select the option “Reset your password”; Then ask us us to introduce our associated mail to the ID.
Once made them appear us two options which we have described a little further up, reset your password by answering the security questions, or do it through our email.
If once released to remember our password we account that neither remembered the e-mail that we associate with our ID, then the problem is somewhat higher, but it has a solution. In this case more specific, we must again entering the page of “My Apple ID” and enter the “Find your Apple ID” option that appears in the lower right corner.
Once inside are a series of fields to fill out where Apple asked that we provide all possible information so they can locate our ID and later, help us recover our password. Between information that asks us to we provide is our name, current email address and any other address that have and may that once we asociásemos to our Apple ID. If despite all our data provide Apple is not able to find our ID, then as as a last resort, the only possible option is to create a new Apple ID.
