I forgot the password for the backup, how to reset?

There is no way to reset. Once you have forgotten the password for the backup, you can no longer use that backup. You will need to delete that backup and remove the checkmark by Encrypt backup so you would be able to use backups again.

    Unlocking iPod
    You can unlock iPod in one of two ways:
    * Enter the combination on iPod using the same controls you used to set the combination. If you do not enter the correct combination, the digits onscreen flash red. When you enter the combination correctly, iPod will unlock and return you to the last viewed screen.
    * Connect iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
    If you can't unlock iPod using either of these methods, you can restore your iPod to factory settings. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.
    If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:
    1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
    2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
    3. Open iTunes and synchronize.

  • HT201343 Forgot my password for the Apple TV. How do I find out what it is? It is not my Apple ID.

    Forgot my password for the Apple TV.
    I was trying to mirror my computer via Apple TV on the TV Screen.
    I have done this many times but now I am being asked for the airplay device passord.
    I tried my Apple ID and the WiFi passwords but neither worked.
    How do I find out what it is?
    Joeblu

    Try going into the setting and under "AirPlay" change the code!
    Hope this helps.

  • I forgot my password for the admin on my macbook

    I forgot my password for the admin on my macbook. Unfortunately I can't reset it with my apple-ID either. I want to keep my account since I need the things that's saved there. Anyone who can help me?

    With 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6 put your install DVD into the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) and reboot. Be sure to either use the disc that came with your Mac, or, if you installed a later Mac OS X version from disc, use the newer disc. As soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the "c" key on your keyboard (or the Option Key until the Install Disk shows up) until the apple shows up. That will force your MacBook to boot from the install DVD in the optical drive.
    When it does start up, you'll see a panel asking you to choose your language. Choose your language and press the Return key on your keyboard once. It will then present you with an Installation window. Completely ignore this window and click on Utilities in the top menu and scroll down to Reset Password. After resetting the password use Startup Disk from the same menu to choose your hard drive for startup and restart.
    With 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6 if you don’t have an install disk check this article. http://www.macyourself.com/2009/08/03/how-to-reset-your-mac-os-x-password-withou t-an-installer-disc/
    If you're running 10.7 Lion check this article
    http://osxdaily.com/2011/08/24/reset-mac-os-x-10-7-lion-password/
    With 10.8 or 10.9 restart holding the Command and R keys, then from the drop down
    of actions, choose Terminal.  When Terminal opens type:
    resetpassword
    and press enter.
    You will get a reset password window from which you can select the user you want to reset, the admin account in your case.  Type a new password twice, do not do anything with the hint box.  Click Save, then confirm you want to do this reset.  Then click apply to the user's home directory, and click the apple in the left corner, and choose Restart.

  • I forgot my password for the laptop can I reset the password ?

    I have my apple id but I've forgotten the password for the computer can I reset it some how?

    You router has two passwords.
    1)  The router login password must be given to login to the router and see the router settings.  The default password is "admin".  If you changed the password and cannot remember it, the only option is to reset the router to factory defaults (using the reset button), then setup the router again from scratch.
    2)  The router also has an optional wireless encryption password.  To find this password, login to your router, and click on the "Wireless" tab, "Wireless Security" sub tab.  Here you will see your encryption method.  Nearby you will see your "key"  (sometimes called password or passphrase).  If you want to reset your key to something different, you can change it here, then click the "Save Settings" button, and wait (3 to 60 seconds) for the screen to refresh.  If you change your key in the router, you will need to change it on all your computers.
    For WEP, enter WEP "key 1"  (found in the router) into your computer, not the password or passphrase.
    For WPA or WPA2, enter the key (sometimes called password or passphrase) into your computer.
    Also note that if you are using WPA2 encryption, and if your computer is using Windows XP, then the computer will need to be upgraded to SP3 to do WPA2.  Vista already supports WPA2.

  • I just buy a new iphone 4S, i wanna sync my data from 3GS to new iphone but i forget the password for the 3GS

    i just buy a new iphone 4S, i wanna sync my data from 3GS to new iphone but i forget the password for the 3GS

    Connect your 3GS in recovery mode and restore, you'll get the option to reset the passcode during this process:
    iOS: Unable to update or restore and iPhone and iPod touch: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen
    If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software.

  • I don't know the password for the SMTP account so as to mail photos.  How can I retrieve or change the password?

    I am unable to share photos from the Iphoto program because I don't know the password for the SMTP account.  How can I either retrieve or change that password?  Or is it one I already should know?

    Have you set the general preferences in iPhoto to email using iPhoto? Then change it to email using "Mail". This way iPhoto will use your regular Mail account.

    I have bought an used Iphone 5. I dont have the password for the existing login id of the old owner. How do i use the phone and change the log in id?

    Unfortunatly the only way that you can get it off is to get the old user to input the password.  You may need to contact that old user and see if he can put the old password in.  hope this helps.

  • Where is the hyphen (-) on the apple TV?  I am trying to set up my network and there is a hyphen in the password for the network

    Where is the hyphen on the apple TV?  I am trying to set up my network and there is a hyphen in the password for the network

    A few options to try:
    They hyphen should be next to the + on the character map.
    If you are still having issues, provided your ATV software is up to date, you can now connect an Apple Wireless Keyboard through bluetooth connections.
    Change your network password so it does not use a hyphen
    Good luck!
