Unfortunately, there is not a universal password for the iPod Touch.

This is because if you lost your iPod or if it had been stolen, having a universal password would allow people to access your files and information. So basically, there isn't a universal password for theft reasons.

But if you have simply forgotten your password and cannot get on your iPod, then unfortunately the only way around it will be a full restore on iTunes.

However if you do this, make sure you have your files backed up because restoring your iPod is simply resetting it- so all your files on it will be erased.

To restore your iPod Touch you must do the following:

  • Make sure you have an internet connection as you may need to download updates for iTunes or your iPod.
  •   Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you have not done already.
  • Open iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer with the USB or Firewire cable; which came with your iPod
  • When your iPod comes up in the source panel in iTunes, select it. Information will appear in the summary tab of the main iTunes window.
  • Then click restore. If you are using a Mac, you will be required to enter an administrator's name and password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage 1 of the process has begun.

When this stage is complete, you will be presented two messages with instructions specific to the iPod you are using. If you are using an older model you will probably have to disconnect your iPod and connect it to the iPod power adaptor, but a newer model will probably require you to just leave the iPod plugged in the complete restore.

  •   During stage 2, it is very important that the iPod remains plugged in. After Stage 2, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear and require you to enter a name for your iPod and choose your syncing preferences. After all stages are complete, the restore of your iPod is complete.
