Actually, I can’t recall ever setting one. Now however, I have got a new iPhone 7 Plus and can’t restore it from the previous backup, as there prompts me for a iTunes password that I don’t have! I have tried all possible passwords which I can think of, but all to no avail. I need the data in the backup but I can’t get to it. Is there a way to get access to it without iTunes backup password?

Many iPhone users would like to make an encrypted iTunes backup to keep safe of their personal data.

But if you didn’t take a note of the password that you set to encrypt the backup file and keep it safe, you probably would forget this password as time pass by.

When you want to restore iPhone from the encrypted iPhone backup, you will have to enter the password to unlock your iPhone backup first.

Otherwise, the iPhone backup cannot be unlocked, which means the iPhone can’t be restored from the backup file neither. So you may wonder how to reset iTunes password or even remove it completely.
