How to reset your AppleID (iTunes, iCloud) Password
Downloading anything from the iTunes Store on your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad requires you to enter your AppleID password. The AppleID password is directly tied to your iTunes user account, which is in turn tied to your credit or debit card. If your AppleID is ever compromised or someone gets ahold of your password, they could potentially rack up a large amount of charges using that debit or credit card. It is always important to remember not to share this password with anyone. If you ever fear that your password has been compromised or your account has been hacked, you need to change that password as quickly as you can. You can do this right from any computer with an Internet connection.
Open your Web browser of choice and navigate to Apple’s official AppleID management site at AppleID.Apple.com. The page that loads will have a series of options that run across the right side of the page. Click the blue hyperlink labeled “Reset Your Password” in the “Manage Your AppleID” section of the screen.
Enter your AppleID into the box on screen. Depending on the age of your account, your AppleID will either be a regular username or an e-mail address. Newer accounts are required to use an e-mail address as an ID, but older accounts can still use user-selected screen names. Click “Next” to continue.
If you can remember the security questions you designated when you set up your AppleID, click the option labeled “Answer Security Questions” and click “Next.” Provide the answers to the security questions in the boxes on screen and click “Next” to continue. If you do not remember the answers to your security questions, continue to the next step.
Select the option labeled “Email Authentication” and click “Next.” An authentication code will be mailed to the address on file with your account. Open your mail provider and copy the code from the message into the box on screen. Click “Next” to continue.
Type your desired new password into the two boxes on screen. Use the “Password Strength” indicator to judge how secure your new password will be. If your password registers as “Weak,” try again until your password registers as “Strong.” Click the “Reset Password” button to change your password.
Note that you will have to sign in using your new password the next time you attempt to use services like iCloud, iTunes App Store or iTunes Music Store on your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad.
