Screen Time is an ideal feature for many users, especially those who want to restrict the usage time for specific apps on their child's device. Once you've enabled this feature and set a passcode, your child can't access locked content or app without the passcode. In the future use of this feature, you rarely have to use the passcode. That makes it easy to forget the passcode. That's why many people are looking for ways to bypass the Screen Time passcode. This guide will show you some simple ways to get the job done.
