  1. I encountered this issue on my Windows 10 desktop server with an iTunes 12.1 restore. I did not explicitly set a password when I created the iTunes backup and did not realize it would be encrypted. I did find that the default password used to encrypt is my Windows Admin password.

    I hope this information helps some people.

  2. Hey, thanks for the wonderful video.

    Please, help if u have any solution for me.

  3. If you need to find the password, I opened the Keychain Access and searched for iPhone backups, the clicked on “Show Password.”

      1. Go into “spotlight” and search “keychain access” then the “app” should open and then just search “iphone backup” or whatever
