Forgot your Passcode iPhone X, 8, 7, 6, iPad, iPod

The step by step video on how to fix the forgotten passcode.

The Problem – Forgot your Passcode

So you have restarted your iPhone and you have forgot your Passcode. This can happen because you use your finger print scanner or face recognition software and when you restart your iPhone it asks you for your passcode. This can be really frustrating however we should be able to step you through this problem.

Step 1 – Remember the Passcode

The first and easiest thing to do is to try and remember the passcode. This might seem obvious, but it might be easier than wiping your device which is what we will have to do to get rid of it.

Step 2 – Computer with iTunes

Next up you will need a computer with iTunes. This is because you will actually need to restore the iOS software on your phone. Kind of like reloading the iPhone so it is the new as if you just brought it from Apple.

Forgot your passcode, restore your iPhone with iTunes.

Once this is done the next step here is too put the iPhone in recovery mode screen. Depending on your model the steps to do this are different. Watch the video above for more info on recovery mode for your iPhone. You should know what your device is in recovery mode as it will come up with a lighting USB picture on your phone or it will come in with a message in iTunes that your device is in recovery mode.

Next you will have three options: Cancel, Update and Restore. Now is a good time to mention that this process will wipe any data on the iPhone including your passcode. So just try to remember your passcode one more time before going to the next step.

Next click restore and then next option will be restore and update. Then your iPhone should reset itself and you should be able to setup your device again from scratch. Good luck ! 🙂

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

This video will show you how to do a factory reset when you have Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

In this video I will show you how to Unlock Samsung Phone if have Forgotten PIN Passcode or Pattern.
Ok guys so we have all done it, we have just setup a password or pin code on our Samsung device and we can’t remember what it was.

Forgotten PIN Passcode

The unlock method I am about to show you is called factory reset and it will remove the Password Pattern or PIN Code, but the down side is it will also wipe the data on the phone. Remember that a PIN or password is setup to protect the data on the phone in case you lose the phone. So I suggest to try to remember the passcode or pin first.

A tip that can help you remember is, put the phone down for 30 mins and don’t think about it. Come back to the phone and try your Pattern or PIN again. Sometimes your muscle memory will just do the code automatically without thinking about it. Its worked for me before.

Ok the next thing I need to mention is FRP Lock, Factory reset protection.
FRP lock locks your device with the Google account that you used on your phone. So if you dont know your Google account then I suggest trying to remember if first as you will be asked to enter it after we do the factory reset. To find the Google account you can go to settings and accounts.

Wipe data factory reset

Ok lets get started with the Factory reset.

Simultaneously press and hold the power button + volume up button + home key until the Samsung logo appears, then release only the power button. Release the volume up button and home key when the recovery screen appears. From the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.
