Hi there and welcome

Are you referring to a password ***** set on a back up in iTunes you made?

Please let me know

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Sorry, I didn’t see your response. You are correct.

Please do not shoot the messenger, but when the backup has a password, it means it is encrypted Neil. The only key to decrypt it is the password ***** set, this you cannot get around, they never implement a back door password ***** this.

I am really sorry but without the password ***** will not be able to use the backup sorry.
