PayPal is an online payment solution that allows its users to pay for online purchases as well as transfer money to others around the world in a variety of currencies.
Account security is paramount to the safe and efficient operation on the PayPal system.
The most basic security measure is password protection.
If you forget your PayPal password, you must either remember it or reset it before you'll be able to access your account.Password Characteristics
PayPal requires that all user passwords must meet certain criteria to ensure a higher level of security.
If you have difficulty accessing your account, it could be because you're entering a password for some other account that does not meet these requirements.
As of March 2011, your PayPal password must contain at least one uppercase letter, one number and one special character.
In addition, your password must be at least eight characters in length.
An example of an acceptable PayPal password is "P@ssword."

Making Guesses
If the password you are trying to use does not meet PayPal's requirements, one possible way to regain access to your account is to make an educated guess at your password with these requirements in mind.
Be careful when guessing, however more than three incorrect guesses will cause you to be locked out of your account. If this happens, you will have to call PayPal and answer a series of security questions to unlock your account.


Requesting a New Password If you can't remember your password and don't feel like guessing, PayPal gives you the option of resetting your password through an automated system.
When you arrive at the PayPal website, click "Problems with login" and then enter the email address you used when you created the account.
Input the image verification string and click "Continue." PayPal will send an email to the address you provided with instructions on how to reset your password.

Successfully Resetting Your Password

Once you receive the email from PayPal acknowledging your password reset request, click the link in the message to navigate to a secure page on the PayPal website where you can reset your password.
When you set up your account initially, you chose several security questions to help confirm your identity; for example, "What was the name of your first pet?"
After you correctly answer these questions, you can reset your password.
Keep in mind that your new password must adhere to PayPal's requirements and cannot duplicate any password that you have previously used.

Hi how to unlock password


If you have forgotten the password or you have entered it incorrectly many times the device will be locked. The only options is to wipe your device. Now if you have your apple account synced then you can restore everything you had before, otherwise you will lose everything.

After completing the following, your iPod will become a password recovery disk, which will allow recovering your system password in case you get locked out. Note: This tutorial is only works for WinXP.
Required Items:

  • Windows XP Home/Pro
  • iPod Nano or iPod Video
  • USB-iPod Connection Cable
Set Up Procedure:
1) Connect your iPod to your machine and verify that it appears as a standard drive in "My Computer". (ex: "Joe's iPod (G:)")
Note: If it doesn't appear and you have iTunes Installed, make sure "disk use" is enabled.
2) Go To Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Select Your Account -> Related Tasks - > "Prevent a forgotten password". A Wizard should appear.
3) Select Your iPod's Drive Name -> Enter Current Password -> Finish


Once complete your iPod should be setup as a password recovery disk. Do not delete the "userkey" file, which you may see when browsing your iPod's contents. To test your recovery disk do a quick Log Off and try logging in with an incorrect password. Select "use password reset disk". Then proceed and select your iPod's drive name. If all goes well it should you will be allowed to create a new password.
Note: Non-iPod users can use the same procedure to save the "userkey" file to a Thumbdrives, CDs, floppy, Memory Sticks, etc.

My ipod is blocked. i forgot the password. what do i do?


Plug it into itunes on a PC or MAC and see what itunes has to say about it. Normally itunes will unblock it for you, or if the worst comes to the worst you will have to do a firmware restore. (plug into itunes and click on the restore button on the main ipod screen.)

Which Operating system is it ?
If you have forgotten the admin pwd then you can try the following :

You need to bootup into single user mode (command+S at startup). It will take you to a command prompt. From the prompt you can do:

passwd user

Where user is the shortname for the admin account (you can lookup the shortname from the System Preferences->Accounts pane before you boot into single user mode). You type in the new password twice .. then type:

reboot

voila.
