Customer Question

Hi there,
I backed up my iphone before (on iTunes, on my MacBook Pro).
Now I'd like to restore the phone but iTunes is asking for a password.
I never set up a password!!
Can't access the backup.
What to do?
there is quite a bit of stuff on the backup that I need...
Is there a place where I can view the password?
i.e. like I could for credit cards / online passwords?
