Apple released iOS 12 update which changed the whole things which were there in iOS 11. Restriction feature was changed with Screen time.
In this blog, we will be talking about what is Screen Time password and how to reset it in case you forget it. First of all, let’s discuss What is Screen Time.
What is Screen Time?
Screen time lets you know how much time you are spending with your iPhone device. It also gives you a weekly graph of how much times you have spent and where. This will help you to monitor yourself in terms of where you are using your time. Is it worthful or not.
It also has some additional features, if you have children then you can apply parental rules on that particular application which will restrict your child to use that application. You can also set limit time to a particular application.
Issues with Screen Time password
Reset Screen Time Password on iOS: Some users are having issues with Screen time password. They are encountering a problem in which they don’t remember the password of Screen Time. Just so you know that Screen time is the second name of restriction application. So after updating if you are asked to enter the password just enter your restriction application feature.
After updating to iOS 12 if you had enabled the restriction feature then screen time will be easily enabled by default.
One more thing I will suggest you, folks, that when you encounter screen time for the first time you will be either ask a password or you will be guided to enter the passcode. Many of you think that screen password is same as screen time password but the story is not the same.
Screen passcode is 6 digit while screen time password is 4 digit.
How to set or reset a Screen time password
Reset Screen Time Password on iOS: If in case you don’t remember the screen time password and also you don’t remember the restriction password then follow the below steps.
- The first option is to try some common passcodes that you might use (like 0000). Do not repeat this a lot. Just try a few different passcode options.
- you may want to erase everything and set up your device as new by going to Settings > Reset > Reset All Content and Settings. Again this will erase everything. And you must set up your device as new again. You cannot use your old backups because your backups will include your passcode too.
- Another option is to use a third-party tool. If you have previous iTunes backups (iOS 11 or earlier versions, iOS 11-iOS 8), you can use pin finder to recover your Restrictions passcode. Once you know your Restrictions passcode, now you can disable or change your Screen Time Passcode.
