Part 2. Hack Screen Time Restrictions with Unblocked Features

Are there any ways to hack Apple Screen Time restrictions on iPhones without accessing the passwords? This answer is actually yes. Before jailbreaking and resetting the Screen Time settings, here are some methods to hack the screen time passcode on a restricted iPhone.

1. Bypass Screen Time Limits with Unblocked Accesses

a. Siri

Siri and Dictation work with most applications on your iPhone. When Screen Time restrictions disable your entrance to specific apps by direct tapping, you can still activate your vocal assistant by Hey, Siri and give commands to let it complete certain tasks on the blocked apps. (For example, iMessage)

Hey Siri

Disable Siri and Dictation: Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Allowed Apps > Siri & Dictation (off)

b. Screen Recording

If you have started the Screen Recording feature before setting the Screen Time restrictions, the whole process can be tracked and recorded in the video.

Screen Record

For iPhones with Dynamic Island support, users can try to hide the red Record button by pressing two fingers together and sliding toward the middle. Then others may not beware of the flickering red circle during your recording.

Smart Island

Disable Screen Recording: Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Content Restrictions > Screen Recording > Don't Allow

c. Share

You can share videos, images and files to iMessage and many other apps via the Share button and get connected to the restricted features by the Screen Time. Just open Photos or Files on your Phone, select the target and choose to share it with your wanted platforms.

Share Feature

Disable Sharing during Downtime: Screen Time > Always Allowed > Allowed apps (off)

d. Contacts

Like the Share feature, you can open Messages and Mail restricted by Screen Time via Contacts. When you click the Share Contacts button, you can jump to the restricted apps with accesses in the following interface.


e. Messages:

iMessage on iOS devices is built with Applets inside. So here is another alternative to entering certain banned apps by Screen Time through the button above the keyboard, like YouTube. Long press the column to view and switch more. And you can add those applets through the App Store easily if the content restriction of Screen Time remains unrestricted as default.

Messages Inside App

Disable Web Content via iMessage:

To prohibit access to websites through message links: Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Content Restrictions > Web Content > Limit Adult Website > Add Websites

To prohibit access to websites via menu applets: iMessage > Messaging interface > Applet column (long press) > More > Edit > Remove from Favorites (under Favorites) > app (off/ under More Apps)

2. Delete and Reinstall the Blocked Apps

You can break the Screen Time restrictions on specific apps once you remove and get it as a new app again from the App Store. By long-pressing the app on the home screen, you can choose to Remove App.

For multiple restricted apps, you can long-press one of them and move it till you see all apps turn shaky. Then click the One Line button on the top left so you can delete several ones quickly.


Disable Multiple Downloading of Blocked Apps: Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > iTunes & App Store Purchases > Installing Apps (Don't Allow) > Deleting Apps (Don't Allow)

3. Factory Reset Your iPhone

If you are holding a second-hand iPhone with Screen Time restrictions or find it impossible to hack the restriction code, don't worry. Factory resetting your iPhone with backups would be the final fix. Please make sure you have backed up iPhone first before you erase all data.

You can open Settings and click the General button. Then continue with Transfer or Reset iPhone. Enter the Erase All Content and Settings and follow the instructions to remove the iPhone data with Screen Time passcodes.

Factory Reset

Your Screen Time passcode will remain the same if you try to recover your iPhone via the same backup.

Part 3. Tips Before/After Screen Time Hacks

Here are some tips before you start or finish hacking into Screen Time on your iPhone/ iPad/ iPod and Mac.

Before Screen Time Hacks
