pinfinder recovers the restrictions/screen time (parental) passcode on iPhones, iPads and iPod touches from an iTunes backup.

Full instructions can be found at https://pinfinder.net/

New in 1.7.1

  • Add some help text for MacOS Mojave users - The latest version of MacOS requires that "Terminal" be granted full disk access; display a more useful error message in case it's yet to be enabled.

NOTE: Apple changed the way the passcode is stored from iOS 12 onwards and it is now only backed up if you take an encrypted backup - This means you must create an encrypted backup in iTunes in order to recover the passcode.

New in 1.6.0

  • Can now find the passcode from an encrypted iTunes backup, provided you know the password used to take the backup
  • New builds work with OS X High Sierra
  • Windows builds are signed, so double-clicking should just work
  • New web site at https://pinfinder.net

Now taking donations if you find the program useful to offset some of the costs of developing and maintaining it - Thanks in advance :-)

NOTE: This is an old release! - See the releases page for the latest version.

New in 1.4.0

This version detects if your backup has a passcode file, but it can't be recovered as it's encrypted (it'll display a backup is encrypted message if so).

If you see such a message you'll need to turn off the Encrypt iPhone backup option in iTunes and re-sync before trying pinfinder again.

New in 1.3.1:

1.3.0 failed to detect the backup directory for Windows XP - This release fixes that and hopefully doesn't break things for other versions of Windows (I re-tested on Windows 8 at least, so hopefully it's good).

Please file an issue if it doesn't work for you, or share it with your friends if it does ;-)

A 32 bit build for Windows is also included now for Windows XP and Vista.

This version prompts for the enter key to be pressed on completion (unless you specify -nopause=true on the command line) to avoid the terminal window closing too quickly on exit.

It also adds some debugging information should the program fail to break the PIN.
