If you’ve forgotten your iPhone password, don’t worry! Resetting your password is a simple process that can be done in a few easy steps. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of resetting your password on an iPhone.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, open the Settings app on your iPhone. You can find the Settings app on your home screen, represented by a gray gear icon.

Step 2: Finding “Passwords & Accounts”

Once you’re in the Settings app, scroll down and tap on “Passwords & Accounts”. This option is usually located towards the top of the list.

Step 3: Selecting “Website & App Passwords”

In the “Passwords & Accounts” section, look for “Website & App Passwords” and tap on it. You may need to enter your device passcode or use Touch ID/Face ID to proceed.

Step 4: Authenticating Your Identity

To protect your sensitive information, you’ll be prompted to authenticate your identity using either Face ID, Touch ID, or your device passcode.

Step 5: Resetting Your Password

After successfully authenticating your identity, you’ll see a list of saved passwords for various websites and apps. Scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top to find the entry associated with your iPhone’s password.

  • If you remember your current password:
    • Select the entry for your iPhone’s password.
    • Tap on “Change Password on Website” or a similar option. This will open Safari and take you to the website where you can change your password.
    • Follow the instructions on the website to reset your password. Once you’ve successfully changed it, return to the “Passwords & Accounts” section in Settings and update the saved password accordingly.
  • If you have forgotten your current password:
    • Select the entry for your iPhone’s password.
    • Tap on “Edit” or a similar option.
    • Choose “Delete” to remove the saved password.
    • Exit the Settings app and open any app or website that requires your iPhone’s password.
    • Follow the prompts to reset your password. This may involve answering security questions, receiving a verification code via email or phone, or using account recovery options provided by the app or website.

Step 6: Updating Password in Keychain

If you use iCloud Keychain to sync passwords across devices, it’s important to update your iPhone’s new password in Keychain as well. To do this, go back to the “Passwords & Accounts” section in Settings, tap on “Website & App Passwords”, and find the entry for your iPhone’s password again. Tap on it and enter the new password to update it in Keychain.


Remembering complex passwords is challenging, but it’s essential for maintaining security. Consider using a secure password manager app like LastPass or 1Password to securely store and generate strong passwords for all your accounts.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully reset your iPhone password. Now you can access your device with peace of mind knowing that you have regained control over its security.
