Probably you bought a second-hand iPhone and can't remember its password or you've stayed so long without using your iPhone such that you forgot its Apple ID password. Whatever the case, without the password, you won't log into the Apple ID, which means you won't access key Apple services on your device.

To get out of such a situation, you'll need to find or recover your Apple ID password. But, how exactly do you do that? Well, we've got you covered. In this post, you'll learn how to find Apple ID password using various easy methods, both with and without resetting it. Let's check them out straight away.

Part 1. How to Find Apple ID Password without Resetting It

If you're interested in just finding your Apple ID password without changing it, the following 4 methods can help you out.

Ensure the Password is Correct

Sometimes you may be locked out of your account simply because of failing to type the password correctly when you tried to sign in. Therefore, confirm that you're entering the password properly – check any case-sensitive elements and also follow these steps.

  • Always double-check the password – Carefully go through what you've entered to ensure the characters you've typed match those of the password. Keep an eye on the capital letters, lowercase letters, special characters, and digits.
  • Activate Show Password option – During the sign-in process you may see the option to show the password you've entered right below the password entry form. Enable this option so that you can check your password to ensure it's accurate before submitting it.
  • Try the password on other devices – Try signing in with the same Apple ID password on other devices to confirm if it's accurate - if you used it before on another Apple device or service. This will verify that the password is correct.

Check Settings for Saved Apple ID Password

Follow these steps to view your saved Apple ID password in your device settings.

  • Open Settings. Select Passwords – for iOS 13 and earlier versions, choose Passwords & Accounts. Go to the Websites and App Passwords option and tap on it.
  • Input your Face ID or Touch ID as prompted or type your passcode.
  • Choose a website to access and see its associated password.
