Since iOS 12, iOS has had a built-in screen time monitoring capability. You may use Screen Time as a parental control tool and control your smartphone usage patterns. Some people utilise the Screen Time function in iOS to limit the time they spend on social networking, games, YouTube, etc. You can set a custom password to protect yourself or your children from unintentionally disabling Screen Time. Passwords are passwords, which makes them very easy to forget. This post is for you if you forgot your Screen Time passcode and want to learn how to disable Screen Time on iPhone without a passcode.
Without a Passcode, Turn Off iOS Screen Time
To be clear, you can only disable Screen Time without a passcode if you’ve already enabled the ability to restore a passcode using an Apple ID. How does that work? Your iPhone will prompt you to enter your Apple ID email and password when you set up a passcode for Screen Time. If you forget your Screen Time passcode, you can reset it or turn it off by entering your Apple ID and password.

Your iPhone will ask you to enter a Screen Time passcode;
Tap the Forgot Passcode?
Your Apple ID and password must be entered.
