Screen Time helps you limit the time you spend on your iOS device or Mac. Long-time exposure to screens may affect your physical health. Screen Time can also restrict how long you use apps and play games. This is very helpful when it comes to enforcing discipline strategies for yourself and your child.
While sometimes you may need to break the limit to extend the time on an app or service for good reasons, but find you forgot the Screen Time passcode. In this case, you need to change the Screen Time passcode to make modifications or disable Screen Time temporarily.
The first way to modify Screen Time limits without password is to change the password in the Settings app. With your Apple ID and password, you can reset the password fast and then regain control over the limits. Follow the steps to recover your Screen Time passcode.
Step 1. Go to the Settings app. Tap "Screen Time."
Step 2. Tap "Change Screen Time Passcode" and hit it again. Then select "Forgot Passcode?" to input your Apple ID and password.
Step 3. Then you can enter new Screen Time passcode and verify it again. After that, you can modify the limits with the new password.
Apart from resetting passwords in the Settings app, you can also use EaseUS MobiUnlock, an iPhone unlocker, to remove Screen Time on your iPhone temporarily. This method is especially preferred for a child, who can't reset the Screen Time passcode set by a parent's iPhone/iPad, where there is no "Forgot Password?" option.
Once you get EaseUS MobiUnlock on your PC and connect your iPhone with the PC, then you just need to follow the on-screen instruction to remove the Screen Time passcode. It is quite straightforward and fast.
