Screentime passcode

So when I updated to iOS 12, which I did as soon as it came out, I haven’t been able to access Screentime in Settings.

I can access it but I cant change anything because it prompts me for a passcode each time. I don’t know the passcode. I spoke to Apple Support over Twitter DM and they said the passcode is the same as my Restrictions passcode on earlier iOS systems.

I don’t know that passcode either… So the only option is to reset my device and set it up as new, which I really don’t want to do. It will take about 4-5 hours to set up all my apps and everything again from new. Any thoughts and suggestions out there? I guess my only option is to just until I get a new phone and then do a clean install at that point. But it’s just strange.

Thanks :blush:

There’s a bit of info in a previous thread:

I would start with all the obvious ones first. 0000 1111 5555 1234, your birth year, ddmm of your birthday, credit card PIN number, anything else you might have used.

I’ve some free time soon. If I’m really bored I’ll spend it setting up my phone as new to access Screentime. Not sure it’s worth it though
