Have you lost your password to logon to iTunes?


Have you forgotten your password to you Mac?
      • Boot into single user mode (press Command-S at power on)
      • Type fsck -fy
      • Type mount -uw /
      • Type launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
      • Type dscl . -passwd /Users/username password, sub in username with the correct username and password with the new password.
      • Restart the computer

If you can no longer access the email account which you used for sign up for your Apple ID, you need to create a new Apple ID in order to download apps from iTunes app store.
