You can reset or change your password from your trusted device when you follow these steps.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

  1. Go to Settings > [your name]. If you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > tap your Apple ID.
  2. Tap Password & Security.
  3. Tap Change Password.
  4. Enter a new password.

On your Mac:

  1. Go to Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud.
  2. Choose Account Details.
  3. If you're asked to enter your Apple ID password, click Forgot Apple ID or password and follow the onscreen instructions. You can skip the final steps below.
  4. Click Security > Reset Password. Before you can reset your Apple ID password, you're required to enter the password used to unlock your Mac.

These steps will work only from a trusted device with a device passcode or password enabled. If you need help or don't have access to a trusted device, try these steps to regain access to your account.
