Just like every parent, you also want to know what your child is up to with their phone and it is quite natural. Feeling concerned about how your children may be using the iPhone you probably got for them is a good sign, telling that you own up to the responsibility of keeping your child safe in a bizarre world.
However, you can’t access the content on their iPhone if you do not have the passcode, and I strongly doubt that they’ll be willing to hand it over to you upon asking, no child will.
So how do you get your Child’s iPhone passcode into their phone without their knowledge? That’s the info up for grab in this article, continue reading to find out.
How To Get Your Child’s iPhone Password?
There’s really no need asking why you want to get into your child’s iPhone without their knowledge as there are dozens of reasons. For most parents, they want to make sure their child isn’t consuming any adult content that can ruin their tender minds, or getting into conversations that are not healthy. And for some other persons, it could be just for a routine check.
Whatever your reason maybe for needing to get into your child’s iPhone without their knowledge may be well meaning and justifiable to you but probably not to the child. It’s funny how everyone is an adult in the age we live in. Even your child thinks he’s of age and needs privacy and he also thinks you as the parent should respect that.
Usually children who find out that their iPhone was accessed without their knowledge do not take things lightly with the parent, it’s always a cause for trouble.
There are a couple ways to get your child’s iPhone password, use any of the below methods that suits you best;
1. Simply ask
Simply asking your child for permission to go through their iPhone may to your disagreement work as magic. To some parents this is not an option at all, but I tell you, it’s possible and still works.
To even increase your success at this, you must before now build the rapport with your child that lowers their security when they’re close to you. Trust me, when your child trusts you enough and can talk to you about stuff happening in their life, giving away their iPhone password won’t be a big deal.
Another way is to remind the child the moment the iPhone was given that they’ll have to hand over their phone to you say every quarter to have their phones by you. Although this can work, but I tell you the truth, you ma never know what your child may be up to even with all the inspection. Because, prior the due date for inspection, they’ll clean up all the mess, leaving no trace and serving you a clean plate.
In my opinion, the first option works best. Let your children trust you enough and make them understand that being a parent is synonymous to be a guardian, also share with them your own pitfalls as a child and you’ll be surprised how you’ll have free access to their iPhone all the time, probably.
2. Get Into iPhone using Siri
Other times, you want to get into your child’s iPhone noiselessly, using Siri is a subtle way to do that. Now you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to make Siri bypass the iPhone lock screen without any passcode. Well, that’s what I meant by subtle.
Apple left a clue without knowing when it made it possible for Siri to be activated and used from the lock screen, and just be giving Siri some specific commands you can subtly make Siri lead you into your child’s phone unlocked.
However, bear in mind that this will only work if you’re running IOS 8.0 to IOS 12. it may also work in IOS 13 but it has not been tested. This above stated IOS versions have been discovered to bear loop-holes in their software build that can be utilized in opening an iPhone without requiring a passcode.
Follow the below guide;
- Wake screen from the lock screen. Depending on your model of iPhone, for iPhones with a Home button, just long press the button to activate Siri.
- Ask Siri ‘What is the time now?’ you can rephrase this question however you like but let the meaning stay the same
- Siri will display the clock icon, tap on it
- Just at the top right corner of the screen bearing the world map, tap on the ‘+’ icon
- On the search box that appears at the top, tap on it and input any string of letters. Whether or not the letters typed in makes sense or not does not matter.
- Select/highlight all the letters afterwards and Tap Share that appears as an inline menu
- Tap on the Message app icon. This will open the Message app.
- Next is to app a recipient on the ‘To’ field above
- With that done, tap ‘Return on your keyboard to go back’
- Wait a few minutes and you’ll find that they iPhone has been unlocked.
This is a good way to get into your child’s iPhone needing no passcode. While this has worked in many cases, it doesn’t work all the time, also you may have to try a couple times first before being successful at this.
3. Get into iPhone using PassFab software
