Bonus Tip: How to Avoid "Can't Remember Encrypted iPhone Backup Password"?

What is the best way to avoid forgetting your password in the first place? Well there are a few options you can use.

  • It may seem old fashioned, but sometimes a paper and pen are your best friends.

You can put all your passwords in a book or on a pad and lock them away in your desk. This is better than having just one password for every site and better than making all of your passwords the same, but it's still not ideal.

  • The other option is to use a third-party password management program.

There are lots of password management software available at the market, it's a better choice to use one of them for password management. One point you should note is that they're not free.
