What to do when you Forget your Apple ID & Password?

Apple devices have issues with its user ‘unfriendly’ nature. iPhone users generally get a panic attack when they are unable to access their phones due to wrong Apple ID or password; either way, it's a mess. Well, it's not a rare case since you have so many passwords to remember, skipping one or two is just normal. Some say that the reason for this issue is that Apple follows strict policies regarding the security protection of its users.

But, what if the user genuinely forgot Apple ID password? What if they are never able to sign back in ever and all the important information gets locked? When you aren’t able to access important devices like your iPhone, all these thoughts keep coming to your mind.

#1. I choose any of the 3 methods when I forget my Apple ID:

• Go to Apple account page and click forgot Apple ID, fill in the details and it’s done.

• Check if you are already signed in in some app etc. and Apple ID will be right in front of you.

• If you made any purchases lately then find the ID that made the purchase, that’s your stop.
