Restrictions is one of the parents’ best features in the use of restricting certain apps and settings for kids; but if you forget your Restrictions passcode, it’s nearly impossible to reset your restrictions passcode without the passcode. But don’t worry, here we’ll share an effective tip to unlock the Restricions on iPhone.

How Many Times Can You Try to Unlock Restrictions on iPhone?

The restrictions passcode works similarly to the main device-unlock passcode: if you get it wrong too many times, the system starts imposing delays. If you were wondering how many times can I try to unlock restrictions on my phone, the answer is:

  • 6 failed attempts gives you a 1-minute lockout
  • 7 gives you 5 minutes
  • 8 gives you 15 minutes
  • 9 gives 1 hour.

It is very hard not to lose data in the process of unlocking the restriction code.

Where are Restrictions in iOS 12?

Managing parental controls and restrictions for your child’s iOS device(s) has changed in iOS 12. Not only have the features moved, but they have also been renamed. Things are a bit different in iOS 12 with the introduction of Screen Time.

How to Set Restrictions (Screen Time) on iOS 12

Step 1. Open Settings app on your iPhone and tap Screen Time

Step 2. If it is the first time you open Screen Time, you’ll see a splash screen with the option to Set up as a Parent, tap that.


Step 3. Follow the prompts to add restrictions by customizing App Limits, Content & Privacy, Downtime, and creating your Parent Passcode


Step 4. If you’d like to make any adjustments, you can always return to Settings → Screen Time 

Alternately, you can remotely manage devices connected to your iCloud account via Family Sharing. Head to Settings → Your Name → Family Sharing → Screen Time.

How to Turn Off Screen Time

Every time you want to make changes to Screen Time options, you'll be asked to enter the 4-dgit passcode. If you don’t want to have it on your device, you can turn it off.

Step 1. Open Settings on your device and tap on Screen Time.

Step 2. Now tap on Turn Off Screen Time. Then enter the 4-digit passcode you set before.


Then the Screen Time will be disabled. If you changed your mind later, just return to the Screen Time section and tap on “Turn On Screen Time.” Then, you can choose to set it up as Parent.
