For any iOS user, the importance of Apple ID & Password cannot be overstated. All Apple services are accessed through an individual's Apple ID and store personal information. For example, iCloud, which uses your Apple ID to sign in, syncs all your information, including photos, notes, emails, calendars, and more. As a result, many users set up complex passwords for their personal Apple ids. However, for many users who are used to using Face ID or Touch ID authentication on the App Store, they may forget the Apple ID password. After all, there really are too many passwords for all kinds of electronic devices. If you have forgotten your Apple ID password, don't worry, we will introduce you to the 4 most effective ways to easily recover your Apple ID password! Let's take a look at how to find the Apple ID password.

Method 1 Find Your Apple ID Password from two-factor authentication in iOS 10 or later

As we all know, two-factor authentication on an iPhone or iPad provides an extra layer of security for a user's Apple ID, since your Apple ID and iCloud account will only be allowed to log in to Apple devices you trust. To log in to your Apple ID on a new Apple device, you will need to enter your Apple ID password and 6-digit verification code. This method prevents unauthorized users from gaining access to your account by cracking the Apple ID password.

So if you have access to an Apple device that your Apple ID trusts, and you know the screen password for that device, you can use it to find the Apple ID password. The specific steps are as follows:

Step 1 Make sure that your device is running iOS 10 or later and that you have enabled two-factor authentication on iDevice.

Step 2 On a trusted iDevice, choose Settings > Your Name > Password and Security > Change Password.

Method 2 Find Your Apple ID Password Through Two-step Verification on iOS 9 or Earlier

Apple officially provides a relatively old but effective security feature in the iOS system to ensure the security of Apple ID, that is, two-step verification. This security feature is designed to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your personal account, even if others know your Apple ID password.

You need to use another device trusted by this Apple ID to verify your identity, and two steps of verification have been completed.
