When using an iPhone, it is possible to set up a password that must be typed in when unlocking the phone for use. However, if you want to change or remove the current password, you need to find the current password on the phone. This is done through a few finger strokes on the device and the entire process takes just a few moments to complete.


Step 1

Power on the iPhone and swipe your finger across the "Unlock" switch at the bottom of the screen.
