Hi guys,

Here is a simple way to remove that password.
Go to desktop software and create full backup.
After that wipe out your playbook. It will restart, go trough initial setup and if there is new os it will ask you to update. Do that and now you have new installed playbook.
Go back to desktop software and restore it, but choose only apps and media, not settings. You'll have to set up everything manually.

Good luck!


I know this is an ancient post brought from the dead, but how can you do a backup when the password has been forgotten? Desktop needs password of playbook to connect.

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

I bought a playbook from Ebay UK. The seller did not wipe to factory setting so when I try to sign in, I get the message that only the original BBID can be used on this tablet. What should I do since am in Africa(Zambia)

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

The only thing that will remain is the OS. Everything you have added will be gone.
