How do I recover my forgotten iPhone backup encryption password?
I had been trying to reset the password when I realized that I can't even remember the actual password that we set while I setup my iPhone. I tried everything but nothing works. It may not be like me to put your password strength like what I usually set so... honestly I'm really stuck. Does anyone know a way with this in mind?
Well, can someone give me certain suggestions that where is the password stored? When it is saved, would it say specifically that you're setting a password to the backup thing? (If not, what is the form that you set the password as your backup encryption password?)
1. Connect iPhone with your local computer that you often use it to sync.
2. Open iTunes and choose the iPhone from the left devices listed.
3. Find the Summary tab within the top right. Click “Check for Update" to get the most recent iTunes software, so select "Restore." At the later pop-up windows, choose "Back Up" and "Restore," then there will be a "Set Up Your iPhone" windows.
4. Select "Restore from Backup" then choose a back-up time. If you make a backup recovery based on iOS 4, iTunes will give you remind that whether you would like to set a new password. Then you can do this as you desire.
Usually, our busy day causes us to forget some things, like the iPhone password.

Usually, you can restore idevice or call carrier to get password back.
