iPhone, Tutorials

In this tutorial, we will learn how to turn off the passcode on your iPhone. Whether you have forgotten your passcode or simply want to remove it for convenience, we’ve got you covered. Follow the steps below to disable the passcode on your device.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, 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: Access the Touch ID & Passcode Settings

Once in the Settings app, scroll down and tap on Touch ID & Passcode. If you are using an older iPhone model without Touch ID, this option may be labeled as Passcode.

Step 3: Enter Your Current Passcode

If you have set a passcode for your device, you will be prompted to enter it. This is necessary for security reasons and ensures that only authorized users can make changes to the passcode settings.

Step 4: Disable the Passcode

In the Touch ID & Passcode settings, scroll down until you see the Turn Passcode Off option. Tap on it to proceed.


If you have enabled Touch ID or Face ID on your device, disabling the passcode will also disable these biometric authentication methods.

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

A confirmation dialog will appear asking if you want to continue without a passcode. Tap on Turn Off to confirm and remove the passcode from your iPhone.


Disabling the passcode will make your device more vulnerable to unauthorized access. Ensure that you have other security measures in place, such as Find My iPhone or a strong alphanumeric password.

Step 6: Passcode Disabled

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off the passcode on your iPhone. Your device will no longer require a passcode to unlock.

Remember, while removing the passcode can be convenient, it is essential to prioritize the security of your device and personal data. Consider the potential risks before making this decision.


In this tutorial, we learned how to turn off the passcode on an iPhone. We walked through each step, from accessing the Settings app to confirming the removal of the passcode. Remember to evaluate the security implications before disabling your passcode and ensure you have alternative security measures in place.

We hope this guide has been helpful and that you are now able to use your iPhone without a passcode if desired!
