I simply updated my iOS (from 4.2 to 6.0) and allow the iPhone store my backup data to my local computer, encrypted. As many people did, I don’t know what the password is to find my encrypted data back. I do not remember ever inputting password strength for it. In numerous inquiries online, people claim they never set the password strength. But I understand I am forgetful and the ones might be presumptive.
Specifically that you’re setting a password for the backup thing? (If not, what is the form where you enter the new password that will become the iPhone backup password encryption?) Is this only a practice implemented from a certain iPod/iPhone generation onward; would someone who purchased a 4th-gen iPod touch not be initially asked to create this password and someone from a year later is asked? Lastly, if in fact those inquiries I mentioned are correct, does Apple just scour your iPod for a password it can use for this purpose, and if so, is there any pattern at all to this that I can use to figure out my password?
Well, can someone give me certain suggestions that where is the password stored? When it is saved, would it say specifically that you’re setting a password to the backup thing? (If not, what is the form that you set the password as your backup encryption password?)
