As we know, iTunes is a useful utility that helps us to backup our data on iPhone, iPad and iPod. It is very convenient for us when we accidently wiped files in iDevice. Besides, we are allowed to set a password by using iTunes “encrypt” feature to keep the backup safe. However, if we lost or forgot the password by chance, that will be troublesome. Even the “decrypt” function of iTunes can’t help you.
Recently, I knew a program named iPhone Backup Unlocker which is developed by Tenorshare Co., Ltd. Maybe it can help you out of the dilemma. Let’s just see more details of it.
iPhone Backup Unlocker (aka iTunes Backup Unlocker) is a program designed for decrypting password-protected iTunes backup of iPhone, iPad and iPod. You have two options to achieve it: recover password or remove password. To increase the rate of decrypting password, there are three flexible methods for your choice: Brute-force Attack, Brute-force with Mask Attack and Dictionary Attack.
Except for the popular iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2, iPad mini3, this program also supports iTunes backup files of iPhone 5c/5/4s/4/3GS, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad 4, iPod touch and other iDevices. And it works for all versions of iTunes, even the lasts iTunes 12. 1.
How To Use
The performance of this iTunes backup unlocker is not as difficult as you imagined. Actually it is quite easy. In conclusion, just three steps:
Step 1. Import your encrypted iTunes backup. Generally this will be finished by the program automatically. No need to import by yourself.
Step 2. Select password attack type: Brute-force Attack, Brute-force with Mask Attack, or Dictionary Attack.
Step 3. Click “Start” to find the password. For the pro version of iPhone Backup Unlocker, you are decrypt iTunes backup immediately after finding the password.
- Provide 3 different password attack types for our choice.
- Useful but easy to use.

There is a strong bond between the password recovery rate and the complexity of the password. And sometimes it may take a little long time to find the password.
If you are locked out of an iPhone backup, this will get the job done. The program takes some time to complete its operations, but in the end, it should be able to recover your password for you.
