Why is There No Forgot Passcode Option for Screen Time.

“Forgot Passcode” option not showing up on the screen time feature of your iPhone or iPad? Some people complain about it that the Apple official support told me to reset the screen time passcode via tapping the “Forgot Passcode”, while it’s a joke for me that I couldn’t find the option or the button on their devices.

  1. On a child’s or a family member’s device with turning screen time passcode on via family sharing, you have no Forgot Passcode option/button on the child’s devices. Note that if you set the screen time passcode on the organizer’s device for children, you should find no Forgot Passcode option on the children’s device or other family members’ devices. In this case, you can only reset the forgotten screen time passcode(for kids) on the organizer’s device.
  2. If your device is running a version prior to iOS 13.4 or iPadOS 13.4, there will be no “Forgot Passcode” and Apple’s Screen Time Passcode Recovery. Update the iOS versions to iOS 13.4 or later, or iPadOS 13.4 or later and use the Forgot Passcode Option.
  3. On older iPhone models, there is no way to tap the “Forgot Passcode?” option on Screen Time. iOS 13.4 did bring the ability to do so, but some older iPhone models(like iPhone 6, iPhone 5, and older) are too old and not capable of running 13.4 or higher.

The kids can only be able to find the Forgot Passcode option if they control their screen time passcode on their own devices when authorized by their parents on iOS 13.4 or later devices.

  1. You state that downloading Unlock iPhone Screen Passcode will NOT erase data but the software clearly states in BOLD letters that it “WILL erase all data on it”.

    1. Hi Kristin,
      Make sure to use the “Unlock Screen Time Passcode” section(no data loss) on the bottom-left of the screen of the app, instead of “Unlock Screen Passcode” if you’d like to remove the screen time password, not the screen unlocking password. The names of the sections on the program are similar. We’ll highlight that in the picture.
