How to Change the Password on Your iPad 2


The default setting on your iPad 2 will require you to simply move the slider from the left side of the screen to the right side of the screen anytime you wish to unlock it. This is convenient and prevents the accidental launch of an app or change to a file. However, it also means that anyone who picks up your iPad will be able to unlock it and view any personal or sensitive information that is stored on the device. If you have followed our instructions on how to set a password for your iPad, then you have already added a level of encryption to your iPad tablet’s content. But if that password has been compromised or guessed by another person, then you likely need to change it. This is a similar process to how the passcode was initially set, so it should be somewhat familiar territory if you were the one that initially created the password.

 

Reset the Passcode on Your iPad 2

 

This is not a solution to removing an unknown password. If you do not know the password or passcode for your iPad, then the only option is to connect it to your computer (the one with which it was last synced) and restore the iPad to a previous state. If you do not have access to that computer, then you will need to follow one of the instructions on this Apple support page. But if you know the old password, you can follow the instructions below to change it to a new one.
