Are you tired of constantly having to unlock your iPhone every time you want to use it? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to turn off the screen lock on your iPhone. By disabling this feature, you’ll be able to access your phone without the hassle of entering a passcode or using Face ID or Touch ID.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

First, locate and tap on the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gray icon with gears.

Step 2: Scroll Down and Tap on “Face ID & Passcode” or “Touch ID & Passcode”

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find either “Face ID & Passcode” or “Touch ID & Passcode,” depending on your iPhone model. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Enter Your Passcode

If prompted, enter your passcode to access the Face ID & Passcode or Touch ID & Passcode settings. This step ensures that only authorized users can make changes to these settings.

Step 4: Disable Screen Lock

In the Face ID & Passcode or Touch ID & Passcode settings menu, scroll down until you find the section titled “Require Passcode”. This section contains various options for enabling and disabling screen lock.

  • To completely turn off screen lock, select “Never”. This means that your iPhone will no longer require a passcode or biometric authentication to unlock.
  • If you prefer a bit of security but still want quicker access to your phone, you can choose a longer time duration for screen lock. Tap on “Require Passcode” and select the desired time interval.

Keep in mind that disabling screen lock completely may compromise the security of your device, especially if it falls into the wrong hands. It’s important to weigh the convenience factor against potential risks.


If you have enabled both Face ID and passcode or Touch ID and passcode, turning off screen lock will also disable biometric authentication.

Step 5: Test Screen Lock

After making changes to these settings, lock your iPhone by pressing the power button once. Now, try unlocking your device by pressing the home button (or swiping up from the bottom on newer models).

If successful, congratulations! You have successfully disabled screen lock on your iPhone.

Remember that without screen lock, anyone can access your iPhone without authentication. Therefore, it’s important to consider the security implications and only disable this feature if you are comfortable with it.

That’s it! You have now learned how to turn off screen lock on your iPhone. Enjoy easy access to your device without the need for passcodes or biometric authentication!
