Pinfinder for Mac OS

To use Pinfinder to recover your iOS restrictions passcode on an Apple Mac machine, follow the steps below:

  • First take a backup of your iPhone using iTunes.
  • Use the "Backup" button to backup your device.
  • Download the latest release of pinfinder for Mac
  • Run the program by right-clicking on the pinfinder icon and selecting "Open" - you may see a warning which you'll need to accept to run the program.
  • Within a minute you should see your restrictions passcode printed on the screen

Pinfinder can recover restrictions passcodes from encrypted backups, as long as you know the password used to encrypt the backup with iTunes in the first place.
