iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of entering your password every time you want to unlock your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to turn off the password on your iPhone. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Access the Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the “Settings” app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and is usually found on the first page of your home screen.

Step 2: Find and Open “Touch ID & Passcode”

Once you’ve entered the Settings menu, scroll down until you find “Touch ID & Passcode.” This section allows you to manage your device’s security settings.


If you have an older iPhone model without Touch ID, look for “Passcode” instead of “Touch ID & Passcode.”

Step 3: Enter Your Current Passcode

In order to make changes to your password settings, you’ll need to verify your current passcode. Tap on “Touch ID & Passcode” (or “Passcode” for older models) and enter your current passcode when prompted.

Step 4: Disable the Password

Once you’ve entered the correct passcode, scroll down until you see the “Turn Passcode Off” option. Tap on it to proceed.

  • Note:
    • If the option appears grayed out or disabled, it means that certain features or settings require a passcode. You may need to disable these features before turning off the password.
    • If you have previously set up Touch ID or Face ID, you’ll need to disable these features before you can turn off the passcode.

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

After tapping on “Turn Passcode Off,” a confirmation window will appear. The message will inform you that disabling the passcode will allow anyone to access your device without authentication.

If you’re certain about turning off the password, tap on “Turn Off. “

Step 6: Verify the Change

Once you’ve followed all the previous steps, your iPhone will no longer require a password to unlock. To verify this, lock your device by pressing the power button and then press it again to wake it up. You should be able to access your device without entering a passcode.

Note: Disabling your iPhone’s password eliminates an essential security measure. Make sure to consider the potential risks and implications before proceeding.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off the password on your iPhone. Enjoy the convenience of quick and easy access to your device!


In this tutorial, we have learned how to turn off the password on an iPhone. We covered each step in detail, from accessing the Settings menu to disabling the passcode.

Remember, while removing the password can be convenient, it also poses security risks. Use this feature with caution and consider re-enabling a secure authentication method if necessary.
