    Due to a ransom-ware virus I had to wipe my windows desktop clean. I can't remember my gmail password and can't get it from google because I don't know the password from the antiquated backup account (aol).

    I still have this email acct available on my ipad1, but I cannot find a way to see what it is.

    Where do I go see my password?

    Thanks in advance

    This may help: I can't access my account - Gmail Help
    O'wise, try clicking on "forgot password" if you remember your gmail ID.

    Yes, I think that I've exhausted ways to ask google. I'm really hoping to find it on my iPad. It's my default email acct., it's comes up automatically, so I know the password held on this device.

    I'm hoping someone can tell me how to see it. Thanks.

    Welcome go to google and enter email address click cannot access my account answer questions and they will email it to you.

    You cannot view the password on the iPad unless you have a program like 1password which remembers all user names and passwords.

    Hi there...

    I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.
