Forgot your iPad Password/Passcode? Solutions Here

One of iPad’s passwords is the passcode, which you use to unlock your iPad to wake it form sleep. You can also create another passcode to block and restrict content from other people who share the device. However, your Apple ID password which unlocks the App Store and other Apple services is the most important.

You are not able to use your device without providing your iPad passcode.
