How to Recover a Forgotten iPhone Restrictions/Screen Time Passcode


Mi cuñada pregunta algunas de las mejores preguntas sobre iPhone. Ayer ella me preguntó:

¿Sabes cómo restablecer un código de restricción? Parece que lo he olvidado.

We then waded through tons of webpages with totally outdated information about how to find out the restrictions passcode. They probably worked several years ago, but not in iOS 10, iOS 11, or iOS 12. Half of the descriptions were also pretty darn hard to read, even for me, and I work on iPhone data for my job!

So here is my contribution to the world of forgotten iPhone Restrictions/Screen Time passcode tutorials.

Update octubre 9, 2018: As of iOS 12, the Restrictions passcode setting has changed to the iOS 12 Screen Time passcode and the storage of the passcode has changed. Decipher Backup Browser has been updated to also show the Screen Time passcode from an encrypted iPhone/iPad backup.

How to recover your iPhone or iPad Screen Time passcode (iOS 12)

In iOS 12, the Restrictions passcode was used to set up the new iOS 12 Screen Time passcode. Download Decipher Backup Browser and make a backup of the iPhone/iPad if you don't have a backup already. The passcode is only stored in if your backup is made with encryption turned on, so as part of recovering your Screen Time passcode, you'll need to make sure your backup is encrypted.

  1. Click on the backup of your iPhone/iPad in the left column of Decipher Backup Browser.

  2. Select "Screen Time Passcode" from the center column.

  3. Your iPhone Screen Time passcode will show in the right column.

How to recover your iPhone Restrictions passcode (iOS 11 and lower)

Desde iOS [0}, el PIN de restricciones ya no se almacena en una copia de seguridad de iPhone. sin embargo , en su lugar, se almacena la verificación del código de acceso de restricciones, de forma similar a cómo un sitio web no almacena su código de acceso para su cuenta, sino que almacena información para verificarlo.

La buena noticia es que si olvida el código de acceso de las restricciones de iPhone es que es muy fácil tener una computadora adivinar y verificarlo por usted. El código de acceso tiene solo cuatro dígitos, que es un espacio de búsqueda pequeño para una computadora, y los pasos para verificar la contraseña con la información almacenada en una copia de seguridad de itunes son rápidos. (Esta es la razón por la que iOS creó un retraso que le permite adivinar las restricciones de código de acceso en el iPhone).

Hemos creado una pequeña herramienta de recuperación de contraseñas de restricciones de iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch, y la hemos puesto en la versión de prueba gratuita de Decipher Backup Browser . No es necesario que adquiera un código de licencia para usar el ocultador de contraseñas de restricciones.

Descargar Decipher Backup Browser y haga una copia de seguridad del iPhone con el código de acceso de restricciones si ya no tiene una copia de seguridad.

Cómo recuperar una contraseña de iPhone olvidada:

  1. Haga clic en la copia de seguridad de su iPhone en la columna izquierda de Decipher Backup Browser .

  2. Seleccione "Restrictions Passcode Cracker" de la columna central.

  3. Después de unos segundos, las contraseñas de su iPhone se mostrarán en la columna de la derecha.

Thank you so much! I've been trying to figure out this password for weeks and had made 40+ attempts. This took 20 mins to do an encrypted back up and then a few seconds to retrieve the passcode and it worked. This is the first thing I found that didn't require me to pay anything or follow a ridiculous amount of steps.

This hasn’t worked for me. I’m very upset, as I have wasted hours trying to recover my screentime passcode. It doesn’t come up with the screentime passcode or restrictions passcode cracker on my app. Please help!!!

Hi Lucy,

Is your iTunes backup made with encryption turned on? https://support.apple.com/e... (section: Check to see if iTunes is already set up to encrypt your backups) The Screen Time passcode section won't appear in the backup unless encryption is turned on. For iOS 11 and lower devices, you'll see the Restrictions passcode section, and for iOS 12 encrypted backups, you'll see the Screen Time passcode section. If the encrypted backup doesn't help, what version of iOS is running on the iPhone/iPad?

Thank you. This worked just fine for me. My aunt’s phone was a hand-me-down from her son. Somehow there was a Restriction code set, but he didn’t know how it got there. Following these steps allowed me to find the Restriction code and disable it. Now the phone is fully usable.
