Have you lost or forgotten your Apple ID password? Maybe you bought a used Apple device or haven't used your gadget for so long that you forgot the password. If you did, you must be wondering how to find your Apple ID password. 

 

Well, this is the place to find out. This article is a detailed guide on finding your Apple ID password, even if you are non-tech savvy. Keep reading.

 

Fix 1: Use Apple Safari to Find Apple ID Password

 

iCloud Keychain is Apple's password manager. It lets you keep your passwords synced on all your devices and auto-fills this information when using Safari. This function remembers these details, so you don't have to.

 

Steps on iPhone/iPad

 

1.Go to the Settings app on your iPhone/iPad.

 

2.Search "Autofill", then click Autofill Passwords.

 

3.Enter your device passcode.

 

4.Check if your Apple ID is available and choose it, then tap Password. You will then be able to find your Apple ID password.

 

Steps on the Mac

 

1.On your Mac, launch Safari.

2.From Safari's menu, select Preferences, then click Passwords.

3.Log in with your Touch ID or input your user account password. Alternatively, if you have an Apple Watch running on watchOS 6 or later, you can use it to authenticate your password. 

 

4.You can then choose any website to see its stored password.

 

5.Tap on Edit if you wish to edit a password. To delete, tap Delete Password. To update a password, edit the password, then tap Save.

 

Alternatively, you may use your regular browsers, such as Google, to check the password. This method works because some browsers automatically save the password when you sign in to Apple services like iCloud. 

 

Fix 2: View Saved Apple ID Password in Settings

 

Steps:

 

1.Click on Settings and choose Passwords. If you are using iOS 13 or earlier versions, select Passwords & Accounts, then click Websites and App Passwords.

 

2.Use your Touch ID or Face ID when prompted or input your passcode.

      If you wish to update a password, click Edit.

 

      To delete a password, click Delete Password

 

If you cannot view your password via Safari or the Settings app on your device, you can turn to Siri or your Mac's Apple menu. Siri and the Apple menu let you view your password in the same manner as in the two ways above. 

 

Fix 3: Use Siri to Find Your Saved Apple ID Password

 

Steps:

 

1.Launch Siri.

 

2.You can then use Siri to check your password by saying, "Hey Siri, show my passwords." Alternatively, you can ask Siri to show you a specific password. For example, "Hey Siri, what is my Apple ID password?"

 

Fix 4: Find Apple ID Password via System Preferences on Your Mac 

 

Steps:

 

1.Select the Apple menu, then go to System Preferences.

 

2.Tap Passwords.

 

3.Log in with your Touch ID or your user account password. If you have an Apple Watch running on watchOS 6 or later, you can use it to authenticate your password.

 

4.You can then choose any website to see its associated password.

 

5.If you wish to edit a password, click Edit, then tap Delete Password to erase the password. You can also update a password by changing it and clicking Save
