Find the Backup Password to Restore iPhone after Updating to iOS 7

When I updated my iPhone 5 to the new ios 7, I found that all my contacts and photos, notes disappeared. I don’t know why since the ios 7 update seems successful. I am confused why this happen to me. But, I realize that I synced my iPhone with computer last week. So I excitedly go to the iTunes backup, planning to restore my iPhone contacts, photos from the iTunes backup.

iTunes askig for password to restore

What disappointed me once again is that iTunes asking for a password to restore. Now I am despaired, only appreciating any and all advice. The contacts and photos are very important to me!

As a matter of fact, iTunes asking for password when restoring iPhone is common among iPhone users. And I have discussed how to solve this problem before (read it by clicking the link). There are some cases below:

Case 1: I am upgrading my iPhone 4 to iOS 7. I backed up my phone (via iTunes 11) and downloaded and installed iOS 7. I am now going through the setup process and it is at the “Restore from iTunes Backup” step. I connect to iTunes and iTunes is prompting me for a password to “unlock your iPhone backup file“. No, I did not encrypt the iPhone backup, nor is it or was it checked in iTunes. I have tried my iTunes password, my 4 digit unlock code for the iPhone, and several other passwords. When I did the backup an hour ago I was not asked for a password. I am at a loss as to what it is.

Case 2:Why is my iPhone asking for my iTunes password randomly and repeatedly?

I have seen this question in several discussions, but all are archived. None had an answer. I have 3 iPhone 4S’s and 3 iPod Touch 4G’s.  All, randomly but frequently enough to be annoying, display a pop up screen when first using the iPhone/iPod Touch (normally from sleep mode) asking for your iTunes password.  It gives you the option to select “cancel” or “enter” and sometimes I just hit cancel. I am so fed up with this.  I notice no problems if I do not enter my password and hit “cancel.”  But, who knows if something is compromised by not giving the device what it “wants”.   So, most of the time I enter my password hoping that will satisfy the “beast” and it will not ask for it anymore.

OK, now we have learnt that iTunes asking for password even you never set up the password to encrypt your backup. Then what we should do is to find a solution to find the password to crack the iTunes backup password.

How to Find the Password to Crack iTunes Backup?

Before I introduce the last and paid choice to crack iPhone backup, let’s explore and try some free ways to unlock iPhone backup encryption.
Trial one:
1. Disconnect your iPhone with computer by extracting your iPhone digital cable out of the USB port.
2. Sign out of your iTunes account
3. Connect your iPhone again back to your computer.
4. Sign in again with your iTunes account.
Trial two: Enter your password that used to lock your iPhone before if you remember it. Remember not the Apple ID password.
What if the above trials are to no avail? Maybe a paid and 3rd party tool is needed. Here, the world’s first and only (so far) iPhone backup unlocker tool is provided by Tenorsahre. If needed, try it from the official site:

What is iTunes Backup?

Data stored on the iPhone can be backed up to a computer with iTunes or to a cloud based storage with iCloud. iTunes is used to backup the iPhone to a computer. When the iPhone is connected to a computer for the first time and synced with iTunes, iTunes automatically creates a folder with device UDID (Unique device ID – 40 hexadecimal characters long) as the name and copies the device contents to the newly created folder.

If the auto-sync option is turned off in iTunes, you have to manually initiate the backup process whenever the device is connected to the computer. Once the backup folder is created on the computer, then each time you sync your device with the iTunes, it will only update the files in the existing folder.

iTunes will initiate an automatic backup when your iPhone is updated or restored. iTunes backup location varies for different operating systems. Backup files created by iTunes are platform independent and can be moved from one operating system to other.

Why Do We Need iTunes Backup Unlocker?

We know, with this iTunes backup, when data lost from iPhone, we can restore iPhone from iTunes backup. But have you encountered another problem: iTunes asking for a password when restoring iPhone?

This is why iTunes backup password unlocker emerged. It is designed to unlock forgotten password for iPhone or iTunes backup password. Easy to use yet reliable to find the lost iPhone backup password.

However, when you realize that you forgot the iTunes backup password, don’t be panic. Try your frequently used password to have a chance to meet the right password for your iPhone backup. The passwords you can have a try are: iTunes Store password, 4 digit unlock code for your device, old iTunes password that you set a long time ago, Windows Administrator password. And all that you can recall.

If all is to no avail, what can you do then? Use iTunes backup unlocker to crack forgotten iPhone backup password.

Operating steps are simple as follows:

# Step 1: Import iTunes backup file. When you download, install the iTunes Backup Password Unlocker on your computer. Double click the icon to initiate it.

If you can still remember something about the forgotten iPhone backup password, please choose a suitable attack type to minimize the search time and enhance password recovery speed. Detailed description of the three strategies is as follows:

– If you choose ”Brute-force Attack”, the program will try all possible combinations by default, no need to define any setting. But this attack will take longer time.

– If you select “Brute-force with Mask Attack”, you need to click “Settings” to define the settings such as password length, character set and affix set according to the clues about the password.

– If you select Dictionary Attack, you also need to click “Settings” to move forward.

# Step 3: Start to crack the forgotten backup password and get the password in the File Opening Password Box.

In this step, you need to click the “Start” button to begin the password cracking. During the process, you are allowed to stop by pressing the “Stop” button, and then you can save the project to continue next time or to end the project.

Attack Types

Three types are offered for us to choose from. Namely, they are “Brute-force Attack, Brute-force with Mask Attack, Dictionary Attack”.

Brute-force Attack is a kind of attack that will try every possible combination of password. Choose this attack when you have no clue what the password may be, and there’s no setting for this attack. However, this attack may take the longest time to find password.

If you remember something about the password, say, the length of the password, you could choose Brute-force with Mask Attack. The settings of this attack include Password Length, Character Range and Affix. Set these items could help you find lost password more quickly.

If the iTunes backup password is one of your frequently used password and you are not sure which it is, choose Dictionary Attack. You could set a text file with all possible passwords and import this text file to the program. Along with this text file, there will be a default dictionary, both of which are for the reference of the program.

Access iPhone Backup File Freely and Easily on Windows

“Hi all, I have forgotten my password for encrypted iPhone backup. I have upgraded the OS but unable to restore from the backup which is having all my contacts and etc. Can I get the contacts by any means from the encrypted backup.

Thanks in advance.”

Yes, guy! You can certainly get the encrypted contacts again. Firstly, you should find the password to get the encrypted iPhone backup. Here are some useful solutions for you to find your iTunes backup password.

 

One Free Solution to Access Encrypted iPhone Backup: Try Possible Passwords Ever Used

There are several passwords you can try, given that you can remember your iTunes Store password, etc.

Step 1) Try your iTunes Store password first. This is most commonly the password to restore your backup.

Step 2) Try your 4 digit unlock code for your device. If you have a more complex unlock code involving characters and such, try that too.

Step 3) Try 0000 or 1234 as the password, sometimes the default password is in fact 0000 or 1234.

Step 4) Sometimes, the password can be a really old iTunes password that you set a long time ago but have since changed it. The original password is sometimes your backup password. This may be a bug in iTunes but try it and see if it works.

Step 5) If you are using Windows, the only thing left to try will be to change your iTunes password on your actual account to access the iTunes Store. Then on the backup password dialogue, try the old password and the newly set password.

Step 6) Try your Windows Administrator password. This is a common solution. Also, even more common is to try the Windows administrator password that you used when you first set up your computer or when you first set up your iPhone.

Note: If you are using a Mac, you can try using the Keychain method. First, open Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access.app. Second, in the search dialog, search for “iPhone Backup.” Third, double click on the most recent entry for “iPhone Backup.” Fourth, at the bottom of the dialogue box, click “Show password” and type in the administrative password for the computer. This will reveal your iTunes backup password!

If you have managed to attempt all the steps and nothing has worked, it seems like you will have to regain the password using a more pro tool – like iPhone backup unlocker software.

iTunes is Asking for a Password When Restoring Your iPhone

iPhone is Great Yet Troublesome Sometimes

“Upgraded to iOS 5.0.1 today. I have never encrypted backups. I now cannot restore my iPhone backup as a password (which I have never set) is required. I keep a list of all my passwords in an encrypted file on my computer including my iTunes password. None of my passwords works.

I have lost months worth of photos of my son growing up and am absolutely heartbroken. My first Mac was an SE and took a Powerbook 190 to me to University. I stuck with Apple through thick and thin. I feel totally let down. You expect this from Microsoft but the whole point of buying a Mac is that this sort of thing didn’t used to happen.

I guess when I retire my 3GS in a couple of months. I’ll be buying an Android phone then?  I cannot imagine giving Apple money ever again after this. Data is just data but when the very means of backing it up sabotages your means of retrieving it…  I despair.”

Just as the iPhone user said above, Apple sabotages your means of retrieving data. You can not copy your files from your iPhone to PC or Mac, but just backup them in iTunes. As we know, iTunes backup can’t be accessed directly. They are saved as SQLITE_DB files. And you don’t know the real file format of each file.
