Privacy is a right, and to exercise this, most of us use passwords on our iPhone to protect our contacts, files, images, videos, etc. from unauthorized use. In the usual scenario, this is great and recommended. But there are times when we forget the password and are locked out of our iPhone.
One culprit for this is biometrics authentication. We conveniently use Touch ID and Face ID to unlock our iPhones. These authentication methods also handle App Store downloads and purchases. iPhone asks for four, six, or alphanumeric password only when we restart the device or during reset, etc. Despite the recommendation, many people do not reboot their phones for a month-or-so. As a result, they forget the password!
If you find yourself in such a situation with locked out iPhone (due to any reason), do not worry, the software we are reviewing here will help you out. iSunshare iPhone Passcode Genius lets you do three things, namely – Unlock Lock Screen, Remove Apple ID and Remove Screen Time Passcode.
Review – iSunshare iPhone Passcode Genius
Looks and Interface
The software is clean, minimal, and straightforward. It appears pleasant and well-built. The opening screen has the three tasks it performs. Overall it looks professional and clutter-free. The easy explanation and big action buttons make it easy for anybody to use iSunshare iPhone Passcode Genius.
Unlock Lock Screen
The first option lets you remove the screen passcode from your iOS device. This is useful when you have forgotten your iPhone password and are unable to get inside the iPhone, or the screen is locked, or the iPhone is disabled due to multiple incorrect passcodes.
When you use this option, the compatible and updated iPhone firmware is downloaded. Next, your device is completely erased, and the latest software is installed. Afterward, you will have to set your iPhone from scratch. So, before you proceed, make sure you have a backup of your iOS device.
The entire process is a breeze. Depending on your internet connection, it may take a while to download the file. Once the download completes, it takes four to eight minutes to remove the screen passcode. Now, you can close this app, unplug your device from the PC and set it up.
Note: If you already have the file downloaded, you can select it from the appropriate folder and skip the whole firmware download step.
Remove Apple ID
Using this option, you can remove Apple ID from your iOS device. This is extremely helpful when you are passing on your device to someone else or reselling it. This will erase the associated Apple ID from your iPhone, and then you can use a new iCloud account on that phone.
Taking advantage of this handy feature is simple and almost similar to unlocking your lock screen password; that is, it is also effortless, and even a newbie can follow the straightforward on-screen instructions and successfully proceed. One thing to note is that you must have Find my iPhone turned OFF to make use of this feature.
Remove Screen Time Passcode
Screen Time is a powerful tool and is available on all Apple devices, including Mac. It is quite reasonable to set its password and then forget it if you do not repeatedly enter the Settings to change the Screen Time parameters. If you are in a similar situation, you can take help from iSunshare iPhone Passcode Genius to remove screen time safely from your iPhone and iPad running all iOS versions.
This software will quickly get rid of Screen Time Passcode without loss of data. After the process completes, you will have to set up your device, and now you can create a new password for the same. Please note that this feature works only on devices running iOS 12, and also requires Find my iPhone to be turned OFF.
You can download it for free so that you can get a look at the software. But to use it, you will have to buy its license, which costs $29.95 but currently, it is available for $19.95.
Overall this is a handy, affordable software. It does what it says, efficiently, quickly, and reliably. It is particularly useful for those who are less technical and cannot dive in settings or perform a bunch of actions to get inside their locked iOS device. iSunshare iPhone Passcode Genius handles it with ease. The only drawback I found is its availability on only Windows and not Mac.
