How to Prevent Child from Changing iPhone Passcode

As we all know, it’s easy to forget your password if you change it frequently. So, in general, most of us tend to keep the password unchanged for a relatively long period of time. But what if your child changes your iPhone passcode by intentional or accident without your knowledge? Then, when you ask him, he says he has forgotten what the new passcode is. This will be annoying because eventually you have to erase your iPhone to remove the passcode. To avoid this trouble, you can use Screen Time in iOS 12 or above to prevent your child from changing your iPhone passcode. Read on for detailed steps.
