I'm sorry but I find it hard to believe that you've forgotten your password and do you actually mean passcode (4 numbers)? If you have set the iPad to use the passcode then you have to use it frequently ie every time it wakes up.

You may be able to reset it but will lose your apps, etc.

well believe me. and you didnt actually tell me how to rectify it lmao

You haven't confirmed if it is pass code. See Apple support

The passcode on an iPad is like a pin and has to be used frequently. It is easily removed so you don't have that problem but you have to be able to log on and chnage the settings. I use a passcode on my iPhone but not on my iPad as the latter rarely leaves the house and when it does is not out of my sight.

Maybe the OP was talking about his Apple ID password? Until he replies we will never know.

Treble post due to return of forum bugs. I get an apparent fail to post so try again, whereas the reply has actually been registered.
