New Phishing Scam tries to steal passwords and Apple ID

Not apply for assistance, but just a heads-up.

This certainly isn't a new type of fraud, but it is worth to remind people, it's there. There was someone in the forums the other day who has lost access to their Apple ID because they responded to such a text.

    You talk to sign in with your Apple ID in iTunes Store? If so, the content you have downloaded/purchased with the old ID is locked to this ID do you just changed the email address, or have you created a new Apple ID and password? If you have created new, you can connect with that, but the old one should always be used to update applications and things that already exist on the device, unless you remove this content and purchase/download again with the new code.

  • New version lost all my saved passwords and not save everything - I tried help

    Earlier versions of registered FF going on very well, but for the two latest updates that the function has stopped working. I tried the steps in the FAQ "passwords not saved", even changed my story custom to always save settings. I don't care. Don't make passwords or even asking me. All passwords that had been in my profile for the last two years are no longer visible in the window of the options "show saved". Should I uninstall Firefox and start over?


    The extension 'Remember password' has been reported to cause problems with passwords disappears, so if you have this extension and then remove (uninstall) it.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.

    • Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe

    Make sure that you are not Firefox running in permanent private browsing mode (don't remember history).

    • Tools > Options > privacy > Firefox will be: "use the custom settings for history".
    • : Uncheck the [] "always use the private browsing mode.

    It is possible that there is a problem with signons3.txt (encryption key) and logins.json (encrypted names and passwords) in Firefox.
    You can open the logins.json file in Notepad (Firefox/tools > Web Developer) to check its content.
    Click on the button to "Pretty Print" to fit the file for readability.
    If there are names and passwords encrypted in logins.json there is probably a problem with the signons3.txt file that stores the encryption key.
    You can rename the file signons3.txt (key3.db.old) and the logins.json (logins.json.old) file or move these files to another folder to make it possible to cancel the action.

    Rename or delete a file of possible signons.sqlite (signons.sqlite.old) used by older versions of Firefox as well.
    You must define a new master password after renaming or removing the signons3.txt and all the currently saved passwords are lost.

    You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:

    This password is presented by your operating system and is designed to prevent you from accidentally installing the software.

    If it comes to your personal computer and you don't need a password to connect to the computer when it first starts, you can probably leave the password blank and click OK to go to this prompt.  If it comes to your personal computer and your normal password does not work, make sure that CAPS LOCK SHIFT is off, and then type the password carefully.

    If this is your work machine and he asks an administrator password, well, you will need to have a conversation with your computer friendly.

    If you are still puzzled, you may need to reset the password on your Mac:

  • I've set up a master password and for some reason its not recognize and cannot enter the e-mail and job site. I tried to delete it, but can not. Help

    I tried to take out additional coverage on the internet with a master password. Unfortunately what I typed to the origin is not excluded or recognized. This causes me a major problem due to one of the sites I use for work being blocked, as well as my original e-mail. How can I solve this problem? I tried to turn it off, but it requires the correct password and it does not work. Don't know what happened or if I typed a wrong typo. Can you help me on your end?


    Firefox master password feature protects your saved passwords. However, even if you are unable to access your saved passwords, you should be able to connect to the site manually (by typing your user name and password). Is that somehow have blocked as well?

    If you have forgotten your master password, you can delete and create a new. However, I think that will also erase all your saved connections and you will save them again. More information on this: reset your master password if you forget.

    If the problem is not with the Firefox built-in password manager but another (add-on, the external program), then steps would be different, but they depend on what you use.

  • New bug password and restrictions of ATV

    Bugs in the new Apple TV are driving me crazy! I got the 2nd Gen (a first for black) because they were released and I love it. Since my children are pretty old to analyze and find money for distance, I had enabled restriction. When I implemented the new ATV I activated just like my other two ATV last gen. Immediately, I noticed a problem with the new system. The old ATV would encourage the code 4 digit (which is defined during activation of the restrictions) whenever I would try to play the media above the permitted level or make a new purchase. It is a quick and simple solution that prevented kid "accidental" purchases or posting unauthorized action films by children. The code was particularly easy to enter when using the Remote app on any of my iOS devices.

    The new ATV however is constantly prompting me for my full iTunes connection whenever I play all media, same appreciation G movies I already own. The worst thing is that because the existing Remote app is not supported by the new ATV, I have to enter my really long iTunes password and complex by using the new remote control and the line of alphabet silly interface. I tried to disable the restrictions affecting everything back any permit setting but she always asking my password whenever something is played. The password is set to never ask, but it seems not to matter. The only way I could solve the problem is to reset the ATV and set it up again from scratch. Of course, this resulted quickly in several 'accidental' purchases on the road to Crossy.

    I hope that a new remote iOS app is coming soon and that they will in the company touchID. With the families of sharing and permission requests that can be sent to the parent's phone, it would be great if the same might work for mountain BIKING. I LOVE apple products and the ATV but it is a deal breaker for me.

    It is a bad user experience I've resorted to dive into my old (3rd generation) ATV up to what an update is published.

    Being a community from user to user, Apple will not read your comments, but if you have any suggestions that you think might improve Apple TV you can send your feedback here at Apple
