Here are 2 options you can initially try, I have suggested to many to use this as it comes from apple themselves.:

If you have access to the email address associated with your Apple ID

  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Click "Manage your Apple ID", then click "Forgot your password?".
  3. Enter your Apple ID and click Next.
  4. Select "Email authentication" as your authentication method. Click Next.
  5. Apple will send a message to the email address associated with your Apple ID. Open the message and click "Reset Apple ID password".
  6. When the My Apple ID page opens, enter and confirm your new password, then click Reset Password.
If you have two-step verification turned on
  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Click "Manage your Apple ID", then click "Forgot your password?".
  3. Enter your Apple ID and click Next.
  4. Verify your identity by entering the Recovery Key you were provided when setting up two-step verification.
  5. A verification code will be sent to the trusted device associated with your Apple ID. Enter the verification code.
  6. Enter and confirm your new password, then click Reset Password.

Login my itunes account


Nowadays, I believe that all users must actually have an AppleID to use iTunes, which is different than a password for iTunes. In other words, I used to sign into iTunes using my iTunes user name and password, but somewhere along the way, I was required to acquire an AppleID instead. An Apple ID is your user name for everything you do with Apple: Shop the iTunes Store, enable iCloud on all your devices, buy from the Apple Online Store, make a reservation at an Apple Retail Store, access the Apple Support website, and more.

I cannot tell by your question if you already have an AppleID and forgot the password for that account, or if you're trying to use your old iTunes account and forgot that password. If it's the latter, I don't think your old iTunes user name and password would work anyway. But I could be wrong.

If it's the former, here are the instructions for resetting your AppleID password (copied and pasted, obviously!):

If you forgot your Apple ID password Can't remember your Apple ID password? Try resetting the password.If you forget your Apple ID password or don't know it, choose from the following options to reset your password. After resetting your password, you'll be asked to sign in with your new password when you or your device accesses an Apple feature or service that uses Apple ID. If you know the answers to your security questions
  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Select "Reset your password."
  3. Enter your Apple ID, then select Next.
  4. Select "Answer security questions" as your authentication method. Select Next.
  5. Select the birth date associated with your Apple ID, then select Next to begin answering your security questions.
  6. After answering your security questions, you'll be asked to enter and confirm your new password. Select Reset Password when done.
If these steps didn't help you to reset your password, contact Apple Support.
If you have access to the email addresses associated with your Apple ID
  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Select "Reset your password."
  3. Enter your Apple ID, then select Next.
  4. Select "Email authentication" as your authentication method. Select Next.
  5. Apple will send a password-reset email to the primary address or verified rescue address associated with your Apple ID. Didn't receive the email?
  6. Open the message and select the link to reset your password.
  7. When the My Apple ID page opens, enter and confirm your new password, then select Reset Password.
If these steps didn't help you to reset your password, contact Apple Support.

If I missed the mark on your question, let me know, and I'll try to help some more.

Changing your password for your Apple ID if you know it is easy:

Follow these steps to change your Apple ID password.
  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Click "Manage your Apple ID" and sign in.
  3. If you have two-step verification turned on, you'll be asked to send a verification code to the trusted device associated with your Apple ID. If you're unable to receive messages at your trusted device, follow the guidelines for what to do if you can't sign in with two-step verification.

  5. In the "Choose a new password" section, click Change Password.
  6. Enter your old password, then enter a new password and confirm the new password. Click Save when done.
The next time you use an Apple feature or service that uses Apple ID, you'll be asked to sign in with your new Apple ID password.

If you know the answers to your security questions

  2. Click "Reset your password."
  3. Enter your Apple ID and click Next.
  4. Select "Email authentication" as your authentication method. Click Next.
  5. Apple will send a message to the primary email address or verified rescue email address associated with your Apple ID. Open the message and click "Reset Apple ID password".
  6. When the My Apple ID page opens, enter and confirm your new password, then click Reset Password.
If you have two-step verification turned on
  1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com).
  2. Click "Reset your password."

  4. Verify your identity: Enter the Recovery Key you were provided when setting up two-step verification, then choose a trusted device that will receive the verification code from Apple.
  5. After entering the verification code, create your new password and click Reset Password.
If you don't have your Recovery Key or are unable to receive messages at your trusted device, follow the instructions for what to do if you can't sign in with two-step verification.

If you don't have access to the email on file and/or don't know your security answers and/or don't have the device or code associated with two-step verification, please call AppleCare at 800-692-7753.

You will need to verify your identity using two separate pieces of information which will vary depending on your account, but after verifying your identity you will be able to have a password reset email sent to you within 24 hours.
