Your backup password is in the iTunes application. Open it up and turn it off on the iPod page.

To remove iTunes backup file password, I searched online for solutions. Finally, when I Google search "iPhone backup password not working", I got a tool called "Tenorshare iPhone Backup Password Unlocker". It helped me remove the unknown backup password quickly!
you can disable iTunes backup password as the article said:

Just experienced the same problem which forgot iTunes backup password.

I had tried the iTunes Backup Password Recovery- to recover the password and within a second, I get my iTunes backup password. I hope this helps.

I had this same problem and could not figure it out for the longest time. Nobodies help worked.

Go on your actual device (iPhone/ipad) and go to general settings and look for the profiles tab and delete all profiles on your actual device.

It worked for me after this and I hope I help at least one other person.

hey, just discovered that the file probbably is in :
- Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
- Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
Note: To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, and choose Run. Type %appdata% and click OK.
- Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
Note: To quickly access the AppData folder, click Start. In the search bar, type %appdata% and press the Return key.
file termination is: .plist
hope it helps.

Okay, I have a tough one for you: I only have a linux pc and want to jailbreak my ipod touch 3g. Absinthe-linux-2.0.4 can do this, but it says that there is a password-protected backup. However, I do not have access to any backup file (I remember that I backed it up long time ago to some windows pc which does not exist any more), nor do I have access to itunes. Is there a way to settle this just with your ipod and linux?

Well, If you haven't set up any password before, I think the iTunes backup password maybe the default one. Try 000, 111, something like that. Or, if you forget the password you have set previously, then a video I watched on youtobe titled how to recover iTunes backup password maybe helpful for you. Following is the link:

At present, there may be several tools which are dedicated to turning off iTunes backup password on the market, but fewer people know which is the suitable and professional one? Here i share the program "Jihosoft iTunes Backup Unlocker" with you, just as it successfully helped me to turn off iPhone backup password with easy steps.

You can see more info as below:
