When ever we talk about safety, we always suggest that you should have a strong password. Even for mobile phone, it’s good to have a passcode so that no one but you, can access your phone data. Though It’s very much possible that someday you can’t seem to remember the password of your iPhone and you are locked out. With our usual email, social network logins you simply click “Forgot my Password” and follow through the steps to restoring access to your account. But what do you do when you have set a “Restrictions Passcode” on your phone a few months ago when you bought your phone and now no matter what you do, you can’t seem to remember what is the passcode you had set earlier..
For many of us smart phones are a very integral part of our daily lives. Losing your passcode of your iPhone might seem like the end of the world. Don’t break your head against the wall now because the steps to restoring access to your account are quite simple. You have a couple of solutions to consider and we have compiled these ‘solutions’ for you.
You can restore your iPhone as a new device through iTunes. But you won’t be able to restore it from a previous backup because the lost password would be saved in the backup.
The second option is to restore your phone using the Mac OS X Tool – iPhone/iPod Touch Backup Extractor located here!
Step 1: Download iPhone Backup Extractor, open it and let it extract itself. You will then want to click ‘Read Backups’. A list of your previous backups should now populate. Just select the backup that you want to extract the passcode from.
Step 2: You should now be looking at a list of apps that have been backed up. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click ‘iOS Files’, and then ‘Extract’. I recommend extracting it to your desktop so you can find it easily.
Step 3: Extraction will take a minute. Once completed, open the folder it created called ‘iOS Files’. Look for the file named ‘com.apple.springboard.plist’, and open it up.
Step 4: As you scroll down this list of properties, you should see a key titled ‘SBParentalControlsPin’ and to the right of it a value. This is what your Passcode is, enter it in your iDevice, and thank Simon Blog for sharing this little tidbit with us.
Jailbroken Users Note
You can also locate your lost iPhone passcode via SSH. All you have to do is navigate to ‘var/mobile/Library/Preferences’.
