Along with the new iOS 16/15/14 comes the highly anticipated Screen Time Tools feature. And if you’ve ever wondered how much time you’re spending on your phone, how much time you actually spend on Facebook, or how much of your time you spend scrolling through Pinterest, this new feature is made just for you.

Part 1. What's Screen Time Default Passcode iOS 16/15/14?

Located under the Settings > Screen Time menu, these options give you a better understanding as to how much time you spend using your phone, as well as the different apps within it. If you find yourself spending too much time on certain apps, the new feature also lets you limit your screen time on that specific app. The new feature is fantastic, but a lot of users seem to be having some trouble with the Screen Time Passcode. What can you do if you forget your passcode?

a) Try the Default 4-digit Passcode - Some users report that, even though they have never used Screen Time before, it still asks for a password. In such a case, you can try the passcode 0000 or 1234, though the success rate to unlock your Screen Time is very low.

b) Enter Your iOS Restriction Passcode - If you remember this passcode from iOS, you can try using it to log in to screen time.
