Need to restore iPhone but iTunes backup password forgotten

Need to restore iPhone but iTunes backup password forgotten

I need to restore my iPhone 6S with iTunes. The backup file was encrypted so I tried a few password sets commonly used by myself. However, none of them was correct. For my case, is it possible recover my iPhone with that password-locked iTunes backup file?

the backup files is password -protected, you have to enter the correct password, or crack your password by some software. like iSeePassword iTunes backup password recovery tool, it's not free but works.

I had the same problem. Tried everything that I could think of in 3 hours. Finally one pass word comes in mine, i tried my luck and it really work: the first password that I set to lock my phone the first time I started to use that iPhone. It was 3 years ago and I changed a lot of different passwords after it, but the iTunes only recognises your phone by the first password that u set with it. Hope it helps!

No unless you figure out the password. The backup file is not "password-locked", it is actually fully encrypted, you can't beat encryption.
