In essence, this is an article on how to recover your restrictions passcode on iPhone.


At some point, we have all forgotten our restrictions passcode on iPhone, but Apple hasn't set up a fail safe for turning off restrictions when you don’t know the password. So we’ll use a simple workaround that will allow you to recover your restrictions passcode, so you can either turn Restrictions off on your iPhone or reset the passcode to something easier for you to remember.

You can use this tip to take Restrictions off your iPad too. Here’s how to recover and reset your restrictions passcode when you don’t know the password on iPhone or iPad.


First you need to back up your iPhone to iTunes on your computer, and make the backup unencrypted. You need to do this for two reasons:

1 If something goes wrong, you'll be able to restore your iPhone.

2We’ll use the iTunes backup of your iPhone that’s stored on your computer to figure out the Restrictions passcode you forgot.

To back up your iPhone to iTunes, simply plug your iPhone into your computer and open iTunes.

Select the little phone icon near the top that appears when you plug in your iPhone.

Under Backups, select This computer and make sure Encrypt iPhone Backup is not checked.
