How to remove your phone's passcode


Updated: 06/02/2020 by Computer Hope

On an Android or iOS smartphone, there are many options for protecting your device from unwanted use. Using the security options usually requires a password, passcode, pattern, or biometric input by the device’s owner to unlock the device. In order to remove these security precautions, select your type of mobile device from the list below and follow the steps.


Biometric security methods, like Face ID or fingerprint scanners, generally require a passcode as an alternative method of unlocking your device. You cannot disable the passcode while keeping biometric security measures in place as the only option.

Removing a passcode from an iPhone or iPad


To disable the passcode on an iPhone or iPad, follow these steps.

  1. On iPhone X and later, or iPad with Face ID, go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode.
    On earlier iPhone models with Touch ID, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode.
    On iOS devices without Face ID or Touch ID, go to Settings > Passcode.
  2. Enter your current passcode, if prompted for it.
  3. Select Turn Passcode Off.
