Can I recover a forgotten iPhone restrictions passcode?

The purpose of iPhone restrictions is to lock certain functions of the device. They are also referred to as Parental Controls, capable of hiding songs with explicit lyrics, preventing YouTube from running, etc.

Without the four-digit passcode restrictions can't be changed. If you have forgotten your restrictions passcode you must restore your iPhone using iTunes to reset the passcode. When asked, do not restore the iPhone from backup, otherwise the old passcode you don't know will be enabled.

After restoring as a new iPhone the Parental Controls are reset to default and the passcode disabled.


This is slightly ill informed advice I'm afraid :( there is a nice little article on how find your passcode without having to restore your iphone. It's pretty easy really :)

The only thing this did was take over my computer an added in a line of MJMIX in place of my search browser bar. I downloaded the free version and then when I wanted to look for my com.apple.springboard.plist I was informed I need to pay $24.99 in order to do what in needed to recover my restrictions pass code that I have forgot.

thanks a million...........

Can you recover my restriction passcode

i really did not get it :( please help.. really need it

Stop promoting faulty information. I used iphonebackupextractor for iphone 5s and it did not work for finding out my restrictions passcode which i unfortunately forgot... be more specific which devices works with iphonebackupextractor.

But it requires you to pay for pro version is that right.

In order to backup your iphone you have to turn off your restrictions or the sync won't work. So this article is incorrect.

0000 is the default restriction code

Thank You for the genius 0000! I would have been here all night trying to recover a code that I never programmed!

So wait if you've forgotten your restrictions passcode and you type in 0000 it'll let you in?

No

yes...for me too

So if you've forgotten your restrictions passcode and you type in 0000 it'll allow you in?
